Another great reason to visit Rhodos; the interiors are elegant, impressive, and well worth the visit. It's a bit empty, but if you are a fan of architecture, you'll really enjoy it, and it is a terrific capstone to your walking tour of Rhodes city. As with everything in Greece, try to get in before or around the cruise ships,... More

We visit it 2 years in a row. It would be a shame to miss it. You also have the possibility to walk on the walls of old town, starting from the Palace of Grand Master of Knights. You should ask more information at the booking office.

This palace burned down before but it was renovated. I liked the mosaics which were brought from another island to there and I highly recommend to read more about the meanings of mosaics... Most of the furniture inside the building was brought there and don't represent the actual time. However, it is nice to see everything with perfect mosaics...

The self-guided tour is of what is predominantly a museum with few original fixtures and fittings. Whilst much of it is interesting, there are a few rooms in which photography is not allowed, and many where it is, so it is a little confusing. It's a pity that more of it is not accessible, especially because the 2nd floor contains... More

I've given this 5 stars not so much for the Palace itself which for €6 is still very much a visit but because this is where you buy a €2 ticket to walk on the City Ramparts encircling the City. It takes about 30 minutes to walk and you finish the walk nearer the commercial harbour. So a one way... More

If you do not visit this palace, then you have not met the Medieval spirit of Rhodes... the entrance takes your breath and after your visit there, make sure you tske the medieval road of Knights to the harbor of Rhodes

Really very well organised museum covering the history of Rhodes from the beginning to modern times. There are lots of fascinating exhibits and very clearly labelled with explanations in Greek and English. Be sure also to visit the Archaelogical Museum as the two go nicely together and are complementary.
