At the top of this street is the Grand Master’s Palace, such an impressive building with a massive courtyard. A monumental marble staircase leads to the first floor, which then leads to grand rooms with... More

The grand master's palace truly is grand, monumental stone pillared room after room including some period furniture. What lets it down somewhat is the lack of any signage, brochure or audio guide so research it well before you visit. Note - some of the exhibits are closed in the winter season. Entry fee is €6.

Well worth the admission fee. Steeped in history with knowledgable staff all too willing to help or explain.

I loved the mosaic floors but was a little bit disappointed when I realised there was none of the original building left. However it was interesting to see how the Italians had re-built it in a fascist sort of interpretation.

Rhodes Town is a great place to visit and wander around with cobbled streets and a large number of old buildings dating back to the time of the Crusaders. The Palace of the Grand Master is an impressive site in a prominent position and is worth a visit as you get some great views across the town. The Palace is... More

I have been many times in Rhodos the past 25 years but it was the first time I visited the renovated knights palace. Fantastic place. Do not miss it while in Rhodos.

Ok so I know this is an Italian occupiers creation, but that in itself is interesting. The museum displays are well presented and it is a really informative place. Do pay and go on the wall walk, it's good to get a different view of the city
