Holidays to Rhodes Town add a dash of culture to your beach holiday. You’ve got Medieval monuments, a mix of late-night haunts and loads of watersports on your doorstep.
A History Buff’s Paradise
You don’t need to buy a museum ticket to see history in Rhodes Old Town. Pass through one of the grand stone gates and it’s like stepping through a time portal. Narrow alleyways lead to cobbled squares and ancient fortresses. The Acropolis is a must-see site. It’s perched on a hill so the theatres, temples and stadiums have an electric blue sea backdrop. Unlike many Medieval cities, thousands of people still live and work in the town so it’s just as lively today as it was in the 14th century
Old Meets New
This Medieval town is far from stuck in the past. Age-old castles sit alongside Zara and Adidas stores. You can climb the steps of an ancient fortress, or a giant diving board at the beach. Chefs here love to try something new. They experiment with dishes like salmon marinated in Raki. But if it’s classic Greek grub you’re after, there are also plenty of tavernas to feed your appetite.
Cosmopolitan Night Scene
Countless bars and clubs open their doors after dark and there’s everything from pumping house music to head-banging rock tunes. Sing your heart out in a karaoke bar or get your Greek on with some traditional dancing.
