Driving (and parking) in Rhodes

I'm visiting Rhodes for 2 nights 3 days and staying in Camelot in the Old Town. On day 2 I will likely to rent a car and explore the rest of the island but am concerned where I can park the car overnight since I am staying within the Old Town walls. Can someone suggest where is the best place to park?

There are plenty of pay & display spaces just outside the walls.

You may even be lucky & find a free space close to the windmills @ Mandraki

Plenty of free spaces around even over the last 2 weeks in August but, if you do park in a pay and display space (blue markings), dependant on time of day, I would suggest you make sure you buy a ticket; on previous trips we have commented that the only people buying tickets were us tourists in hire cars but, on 2 occasions last week, we saw police officers out in force and merrily giving tickets out to, both hire and local, cars around the New Market area in RT.

Possibly a crack down as part of clamping down on direct/indirect taxation seemingly taking place at the moment??

Hi Dave,

When I at the New Market towards the end of July the parking police were out in force and booking everyone who hadn't paid or overstayed including some shop owners. Quite amusing to watch the arguements even though I couldn't understand them.

The parking around the old town walls by the harbour was chaotic with cars being parked anywhere. In early August there were never any visible parking patrols in the early evening and many parked cars had not bothered to display pay & display tickets.

It was annoying that I had paid to park and several hours later when I returned to my car, all the nearby cars that had not displayed pay & display tickets, had enjoyed free parking without penalty.
