Voyage to the island of the knights

The island of Rhodes offers a stunning combination of sea, sand, and sights. (How’s that for alliteration?) And with more than 300 days of sunshine per year and over 10,000 years of history, we think you’ll find plenty to tickle your fancy here.

First on your agenda should be the picture-perfect city of Rhodes, one of the best-preserved medieval cities in all of Europe. With its combination of sandstone buildings, cobblestoned Street of the Knights, and charming turreted buildings, it’s no wonder this is such a popular UNESCO World Heritage Site.

And speaking of wonders, next up on your magical history tour is the Rhodes waterfront where once stood the Colossus of Rhodes, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. Although the nearly 100’ statue of the Greek god of sun, Helios, was destroyed in an earthquake around 250 BC, you can imagine what it must have been like to arrive in this harbor thousands of years ago.

Just a short ride away, the medieval town of Lindos features ruins like the 4th century BC temple of Athena Lindia and the castle of the Knights of Saint John, and houses stacked like giant sugar cubes on a steep hill. Hitch a donkey ride to the acropolis at the top for spectacular views of the town and Saint Paul’s Bay.
