The historic Old Town of Rhodes is still encircled by medieval walls and was a hub for the Crusader Knights Hospitaller of St John 600 years ago. It's a UNESCO World Heritage site for its fine state of preservation, and a visit here is a step back in time among landmarks and fascinating museums.

The ancient Acropolis of Rhodes, where the legendary Colossus of Rhodes once stood, is a short journey outside town. Return at the hotel for dinner. Free night.
DAY 3: Free Day (Optional one day)
After breakfast, we propose a visit at the Cape Prasonisi is one of Rhodes' most dramatic coastlines, set on a peninsula at the southern tip of the island. It's connected by a sand bar, but only four-wheel drives can drive across the way. The island is rich in Crusader castles and Filerimos Mount has the medieval remains of a monastery and magnificent view over the northern slopes. The highest peak on Rhodes is Mount Attavyros, a challenging climb but well worth it for the view of the unspoilt countryside. The trail is marked in red on the rocks.
Rhodes is famous for its beaches, with its eastern shores an almost continuous sandy stretch broken up by a few rocky promontories. Western beaches are stony, with the best surfing in the east, while the southern strands are the least developed. The Dodecanese archipelago has a great choice of offshore islands if you enjoy boat trips, with Kalymnos and Symi two charming examples.
Most of the beaches on Rhodes have the EU Blue Flag, signifying crystal-clear waters and sparkling-clean sands. Elli Beach on the island's northern tip is backed by towering hotels, a casino and an aquarium, and is the longest beach here. Swimmers and windsurfers will enjoy the Ialyssos beaches for their deeper waters and northerly winds, and the little, pine-backed coves along Kallithia boast rock pools and interesting rock formations. Faliraki Beach is known for its organised water sports, and the sea caves at Tragonou Beach are great for exploring. For naturist bathing in a picturesque location, Katharas Bay is perfect.
For buzzing nightlife, the beach town of Faliraki is the place to head for, and the beautiful valley of Butterflies is famous for its huge colonies of butterflies which swarm in July and August.
