Visit Rhodes Town

Rhodes Town is one of the best Medieval communities on the European continent. To maintain its preservation, it was listed as a world heritage site in 1988. It is a city with a beautiful harbor and waterfront, while the landmarks that are offered date back to the days of antiquity.

The Acropolis of Rhodes is believed to be over 2,500 years old. Although what remains is a handful of pillars and expansive grounds to explore, you can fell the history surrounding you as you explore the area. A large park, a small theater, and a stadium are part of the grounds.

The Palace of the Grand Master, a castle from the Medieval era, is built on the foundations of a 7th century citadel. The details are well-preserved throughout the grounds, with stunning mosaics, arcades, and fortifications to enjoy during a tour. It has been a museum since 1948 and will literally take your breath away.

Rhodes Town still has some of its Medieval walls in place as well. Build in the 14th century and then restored in the 15th and 16th centuries to repair damage from an earthquake and an Ottoman siege, it is one of the best examples of a fortification from that era that can be found anywhere.

You’ll have access to beaches and water sports. If you dive, then the Medieval shipwrecks just off the coast make for a unique and interesting experience.

From the time when the Colossus of Rhodes was built, Rhodes Town has been a tempting place for visitors to see. With more than 2,000 years of hospitality experience, you will find a stay here to be an incredible opportunity to explore.

Visit Greece

With whitewashed walls, blue accents, wide beaches, and emerald seas, Greece already has much to offer any visitors. When the resorts, historic sites, and ancient cultures are added into the mix, one has the perfect destination for almost any reason.

Greece is a land that is filled with natural beauty. The weather is reliably sunny, there is a thriving nightlife in almost every city and village, and plenty of water sports opportunities that include snorkeling, diving, and surfing.

Although it is easy to picture Greece as it appears on many tourism sites in the Cycladic mind’s eye, it is a land that rich in cultural and architectural diversity. Each region has its own beauty to offer, from the Neoclassical emphasis in cities like Nafplio or the Ottoman influences of Grevena.

In total, Greece has more than 6,000 islands that are scattered throughout the Ionian and Aegean Seas. Of that total, more than 225 of them are currently inhabited, though that number may be as few as 160. This is where you’ll find unspoiled island life, pristine beaches, and a quiet place to relax.

Many of the Greek beaches have been awarded blue flags under the Blue Flags of Europe Program, meaning that wind sports, water sports, and swimming are world-class.

Greece offers more than 4,000 years of civilization to explore. The waters are safes. The distance between the coast and the ports is minimal, making island access simple and affordable. If you feel lost, this nation invites you to find yourself again.
