The tour starts from Rhodes City Post Office, where you’ll embark for this Two-and-a-Half Cities Tour. A licensed English-speaking guide will walk you through the rich and textured history of the region.
Start the day in the Old Townof Rhodes, a UNESCO World Heritage Site where every alley and edifice bears the evidence of empires past.
Enter the towering city walls of the oldest inhabited medieval city in Europe and ford the city moat, whose beautiful harbor setting belies its martial purpose.
Stroll down narrow, nameless streets where buildings dating from the days of the Knights of St John are now filled with cafes, shops, and boutiques.
Drive to the enchanting village of Lindos and tour the ruins of this former Dorian trading center that once connected the Phoenician and Greek empires. Tour a perched medieval castle whose walls follow the natural contours of a cliff, then look out over the harbor like an ancient sentinel.
The Acropolis of Lindos, devoted to the Goddess Athena, was built in the city’s golden age in the 6th century BC and was used as a fortress through Ottoman times.
Climb to the hill of Monte Smith, named for a British admiral, where the ruins of Rhodes’ ancient acropolis are elegantly laid out in a lush archaeological park.
You’ll be returned by coach to your hotel in Rhodes at tour’s end.
