Holidays to Rhodes Town, Rhodes

Overview

Rhodes Town is a town of two halves; The Old Town and the New Town. A mixture of cultural, historical and coastal living that is a true delight for families and couples wanting a break in the sun. Wander the medieval walls that used to protect the city, lounge on the beach or head out into the country side to see Rhodes beautiful wildlife. What will you do while you’re here?

Things To Do

Although the beach isn’t the main draw of Rhodes Town, there is still a stunning stretch of sand and shingle which wraps around the very northern point of the island. Go further inland and you’ll discover the Valley of the Butterflies, a place covered in sweetgum trees which attract Jersey Tiger Moths during the summer months. A walk through the valley will take you across streams, ponds and waterfalls which are very refreshing in the summer heat.

Food and Drink

Rhodes Town may be of historic interest but it knows how to entertain too. The Old Town is fantastic for a special holiday meal but Orfanidou Street is one of the town’s main places to go for some traditional food. There are a few clubs on this street too if you want to dance the night away and if you’re lucky you might even get to try out some traditional Greek dancing at one of the bars!

Culture

The culture of Rhodes Town can be seen in the ornate medieval buildings and streets. This place has even been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site because of its historical buildings, and the Palace of Grand Master of Knights is a key part to this destination’s story. This building is full of Roman mosaics and the palace itself leads onto the medieval walls which form protection around the Old Town.
