The largest island in the Dodecanese, Rhodes is one of the most well-known locations for spring and summer vacations. It is an island of exquisite beauty that is brimming with love and romance thanks to the combination of its long, spectacular history and its natural beauty.
The medieval city, which is located in the heart of the island and is a complex of the Knights of Rhodes, has been recognized by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site and it is a unique example of the medieval world. Needless to say, Rhodes is a stunning tapestry of historical experiences, including the famous Colossus of Rhodes, where Byzantines, Greeks, Venetians, and Turks all made their mark. Villages with outdoor wood-fired ovens where women still prepare bread can be found close to opulent resorts. Additionally, cuisine of Rhodes offers a wide range of culinary delights. It has been affected by its conquerors over the centuries while yet preserving its Mediterranean essence.
Aside from its natural beauty and beaches, the island is home to numerous outstanding archaeological sites, including the Lindos Acropolis, Ancient Kamiros, castles, monasteries, museums, traditional buildings, and villages.
Holidays in Rhodes are a need because of the endless sandy beaches with distinctive clear waters, the medieval villages up in the mountains where it feels like time has stood still, the abundance of high-end hotels, luxury villas, and upscale restaurants.
