Hi Expert

I am arriving by cruise ship and don't want to do a 'guided tour'. The Top Sights you have provided - are they within walking distance to the pier?

Hi there

There are sevral Rhodes DEs so I'll answer for us all. The cruise berths are within a short, level walk from the Old Town of Rhodes. Everything inside the walls of the Old Town is easily reached although you'll have a job to fit it all in in one day. It is all pedestrianied but do watch out for the occasional cab or scooter.

You will enter the Old Town via one of the huge fortified gates - inside many of these you'll find bookstalls where you can buy good, accurate street maps of the Old Town which detail all the sights and antiquities in English and Greek. All street names are there too. Buy one of these and you can't go wrong. There's a main east/west shopping street "Sokratous" which bisects the Old Town - use this for your bearings and you won't get lost in the back streets and alleyways.

You can jump in a taxi to reach Monte Smith ( Rhodes Town Acropolis) but other than that, I really wouldn't recommend you try to fit anything else in. Some folk jump on a bus or in a cab and go down to Lindos which is wonderful, but it's at least an hour either way and the Old Town of Rhodes has enough to keep you occupied for a week.
