Dodecanese travel guide

Beaches · Ruins · Castles
The sunny Dodecanese are a group of over 150 islands known for their beaches, ancient churches, and medieval castles. The twelve major islands lie at the southeastern edge of the Aegean Sea and wrap around the shores of Asia Minor. The island chain's major attraction remains Rhodes, the largest and the most developed island of the group, known for retaining many traces of the Byzantine and Ottoman empires. The smaller islands, which are more remote and less frequented by foreign tourists, remain free of the package-deal crowds and retain their traditional way of life. Spend a relaxing holiday on Symi or Patmos, or settle on well-connected Kos and spend your days touring the smaller islands by boat.
