Rhodes Greece

Delve Into the History of Ancient and Medieval Rhodes

Visiting Rhodes means you have to be prepared for some of the most unique and diverse places to visit and things to do that you can consider for your Greek holiday. Rhodes is a place like no other. The largest of Greece’s Dodecanese islands, it features a city by the same name and some amazing medieval and ancient destinations that every visitor should try to see at least once.

Rhodes was nicknamed The Island of the Knights due to it having offered sanctuary to the Knights of Saint John of Jerusalem. In ancient times, it was known for housing one of the seven wonders of the world: the Colossus of Rhodes.

When you visit the island, you’ll find it will present no shortage of imposing castles, pristine beaches and monasteries like Tsambika which requires climbing 300 steps to one of the island’s tallest places, but also offers a superb view of much of the island. Some other notable places that Rhodes is known for also include the Seven Springs, the Valley of the Butterflies and the Ancient Site of Kaminos – an amazing archaeological site that history buffs will love.
