“Well worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

There is loads to see in the old town and there's probably enough scope for several visits. It's a great blend of touristy shops, tavernas and characterful old buildings. Some of the tavernas looked interesting. The ones around the harbour looked missable and have those annoying doormen who plague you as you go past. The harbour itself is a pretty, breezy spot for a sit down and an ice cream.

“Great medieval city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2012

Loved the old city of Rhodes. It is a great example of a medieval walled city for sure. I would say it only has a few good sites inside to visit, the main attraction is just walking around and looking at all the great buildings and passage ways. I suggest going early in the morning; this means all the tacky tourist stores haven't opened yet and the loads of tourists have not come from the cruise ships yet. By 11am-12pm, the place is absolutely packed and not very fun.
The city also takes on a totally different look and feel at night; still quite busy but it is great to see the sites after dark. We found parking just outside the gates for around $2E for each visit.

“What a stunner!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

No-one should go to Rhodes and not visit the old town - the streets are magical - beautifully maintained - needs more than one visit though so we'll just have to go back again for another holiday to have another look!!!

“Historical”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012

The medieval city as to be seen to be believed. It feels like stepping back in time, with lots of alleys and a real feeling of 'old Rhodes'.
