Greece is all about culture and Rhodes throughout its vast history has been a crossroad of civilizations and cultures, where all have blended in the course of history. Rhodes was a trade stopover and destination since the prehistoric times, a flourishing city throughout the historic times, the western bastion of Christianity during the presence of the Hospitaler Knights of the order of St. John and a strategic spot in the eastern Mediterranean throughout its history.
Rhodes is an amazing island, with unique history and natural beauties. It has a great variety of landscapes, where you still find untouched beaches and crystal-clear sea and an ideal Mediterranean climate, with an average of 300 days of sunshine per year.
There are also many unique landmarks on Rhodes like the Medieval Town, designated by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site, the eco-park of the Valley of the Butterflies, which attracts thousands of butterflies, and the Seven Springs with seven trickling streams that flow into a lake. The landscape contrasts, from rocky wild scenery to lush greens valleys, make the island special and an inspiration source for classic and modern artists.
To help you explore our beautiful island, we can certainly recommend some places to visit during your stay: Rhodes medieval town, Kallithea Springs, the Valley of the Butterflies (Petaloudes), Seven Springs (Epta piges) and Prassonisi are all well worth a visit.
The most divine destination in Rhodes is Lindos. It lies on the east coast of the island about 50 km from the capital. Lindos is a picturesque settlement with beautiful traditional houses, pebbled courtyards, breathtaking views and attractive beaches. Walking through the labyrinth of narrow cobbled streets, visitors inevitably fall in love with the place and can sense its incredible atmosphere. On top of the hill, above the whitewashed houses, rises the Acropolis of Lindos, one of the most spectacular monuments in Rhodes, where visitors will have the chance to see a medieval castle, ancient temples and sites, and enjoy a magnificent vista of the Aegean Sea.
