A conglomeration of many distinct architectural styles, Rhodes Town is the biggest urban center of the eponymous Greek island known for its golden beaches and relaxed way of life.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Mandraki Harbour and Monastery Tsambika. Get some historical perspective at Ancient Kamiros and Fort of St. Nicholas. Change things up with these side-trips from Rhodes Town: Lindos (Agios Pavlos Beach & Lindos Beach) and Agathi Beach (in Haraki). There's much more to do: contemplate the long history of Street of the Knights, take an in-depth tour of Archaeological Museum of Rhodes (Hospital of the Knights), stroll through Tsambika Beach, and don't miss a visit to Kallithea Springs.
