Historic Rhodes Town
Set on the northern tip of Rhodes, the island’s capital, Rhodes Town, does double duty as a heritage hotspot and a holiday resort. The town is divided into 2 sections – a well-preserved Medieval old town and a newer town. Both sides are brimming with designer boutiques, upscale restaurants, traditional tavernas and contemporary bars.
The old town is a real throwback to the Middle Ages, when a group of crusaders, the Knights of St John, built a fortified city here. Behind the Medieval walls, sights include the famous Street of the Knights, a 600-metre stretch lined with old inns.
The curving shingle beach here is about 400 metres long. It’s really central, which makes it incredibly popular. One end comes with a view of the old town’s rampart walls. Conveniently, snack bars and restaurants are right on hand, and there’s even the odd passing masseuse.
About an hour’s drive will take you to Lindos – a postcard-pretty village filled with whitewashed houses and cobbled streets. The hill that overlooks the village is home to the famous acropolis, which has been around since the 3rd century BC. Take the 10-minute walk – or 5-minute donkey ride – to the top, and you’ll be able check out the remains of the ancient Temple of Athena and see what’s left of a Byzantine church.
Symi, sometimes spelt Simi, is one of the smaller holiday islands in the Dodecanese group just 9km off the Turkish coast north of Rhodes. Symi is a popular destination for day trippers and there are regular daily excursions from the Rhodes port of Mandraki.
Symi is noted for the very high summer temperatures, which can soar to 40°C or more in July and August and make the sheltered main port a sizzling cauldron.
Neoclassical mansions hang off the hills around the main port, a reminder of Symi’s rich past a and splendid sight for arriving visitors. In the early morning and late evening the bay is a haven of calm but for most of the day it is thronged with day trip visitors.
One of the big tourist attractions on Symi is the monastery at Panormitis, a favourite with the boat day trippers who find a spectacular building in a large bay on the southwest tip of the island.
