BEYOND THE BEACH: 5 THINGS TO DO IN RHODES
The medieval town remains the most popular attraction in Rhodes. It is preserved to a very good level and you get the feeling that a knight could make his appearance at any minute. The fenced ruins of the ancient temple of Aphrodite, the Palace of the Grandmaster, the clock tower and the Turkish baths are only a few of the things that will definitely make you travel through time.
2. Become active
With 300 days of sunshine a year on average, Rhodes is the ideal place for outdoor activities. The two rock climbing sections with the multiple routes and the numerous hiking paths will make your adrenaline rush. If you like cycling on the other hand, you will be surprised by the number of the routes you may choose from.
3. Visit the medieval castles
Throughout the entire island you will come across many castles. Lindos, Monolithos, Charaki, Asklipieio and Kritinia are some of the most impressive ones. Not only they are interesting from an architectural and a historical perspective, but they are also offering a magnificent view.
4. Discover the most magnificent sceneries of natural beauty
The valley of the butterflies is a unique untouched biotope, which is being overwhelmed by thousands of butterflies during the summer months. The Seven Springs is a little secret paradise with crystal-clear waters, pine and plate trees, while in the premises of the renovated Kallithea Springs different kinds of events are being hosted all year round.
5. Enjoy Rhodes by night
Rhodes’ nightlife is nothing less but legendary and a visit to Rhodes would be incomplete if a night-out was not included. Bars, clubs and pubs: in Rhodes there is an option for every taste!
