OK. So I have lived in ancient cities before -- Delhi and London, for example. But neither now feels old. My four days in Rhodes Old Town was like living in a movie set -- Three Musketeers? But completely real, and throbbing with life. The Palace of the Grand Master is majestic. And almost kitsch in it's 20th century Italian... More

Very atmospheric historic town with well preserved buildings and a never ending number of back streets to roam around with great restaurants, cafes and shops. We spent several days in Rhodes Town and never got tired of walking around different parts of the Old Town

Arriving by cruise ship you can't help but marvel at the the old medieval city of Rhodes with its massive walls, the old fortress overlooking the city and its attractive Mandriki harbor. As you walk through the narrow cobblestone streets its history comes alive as you traverse the same ground as the Crusaders. Everywhere you look there are vestiges of... More

We walked around the streets of the old town twice and I don't think we saw it all. We had a week so needed to see other areas.

Medieval town with its vast walls, moat, bridges, churches, mosks and the narrow streets. In the center of the old town are many shops, restaurants etc, but a little bit outside the center you discover the real beauty of the old town, with its long history, there is also a synagogue in the jewish quarter and a monument for the...

We spent the day in old Rhodes between leaving our chartered yacht at 9 am and catching a flight home in the evening. The old city is enclosed by walls, and has a mixture of tourist traps (souvenir shopping streets) and quieter ancient places, together with many restaurants and bars. In May even the busy shopping streets were tolerable, and... More
