A beautiful building, well worth visiting for the architecture alone,loads of photo opportunities, hard to believe it is hundreds of years old.There are a couple of large museums where exhibits from thousands of years ago are on display. It is hard to believe that pottery,statues & gold rings are there that were made 2 or 3 thousand years ago &... More

A visit to the palace is a must. From the mosaic floors to the varied designs of the vaulted ceilings, the building tells a fascinating history of the city of Rhodes.
