A few word on Rhodes
Welcome to Rhodes, the Island of the Knights, the island of Sun, the charming capital of Dodecanese.
Rhodes is the biggest island of the Dodecanese complex and the fourth biggest island in the Aegean Sea. It is located at the crossroad of some great sea routes, so be prepared for quite hot weather!
Hundreds of thousands of visitors arrive every year in our island to enjoy its beautiful scenery, in combination to modern hotel premises, the traditional food, the water sports, the nightlife at the countless venues as well as to savour the history walking in the cobbled streets of the biggest Medieval Old Town in Europe declared as World Heritage Site.

Rhodes is a land of contrasts where you can live the cosmopolitan side of the island or just enjoy a peaceful vacation.
You are welcome to discover it!
