Rhodes, the largest of the Dodecanese islands, is not an ordinary holiday resort but a cosmopolitan place with an international reputation. The charming mediaeval town, the sophisticated Lindos, the irresistible valley of the butterflies, the high-quality lifestyle and the long golden sand beaches, make the days and nights in the island unforgettable. Rhodes is a medieval and modern combination which impresses and fascinates visitors. At the homonymous capital of Rhodes, the romantic medieval Old Town holds amazing historical buildings, and the modern New Town also has its archaeological findings. Millions of tourists every year walk through the narrow streets of the Old Town to visit the museums, the churches and the fortress walls, following the steps of the knights. Together with intensive nightlife in Faliraki, crystal water and warm locals, the island makes for a great choice in holiday!

Rhodes offers a variety of activities all year round. The island’s natural beauty, ancient monuments from its long and often turbulent history, a wonderful atmosphere and a warm hospitality from Rhodes population.

Dishes for everyone: Traditional Greek Taverns, international menus, fish, pizzas, and pastas. Try the traditional local dish "Koulouria" or "matsi" (you may find it mostly in the village taverns). Handmade pasta boiled in goat stock, browned in fresh butter and sprinkled with Parmesan.

The "bar street" in the Old town, the fashionable clubs in Ixia, the Greek style nights in Ialysos, the sleepless days and nights at the beach bars in Faliraki and Lindos, make the entertainment on the island unforgettable! Miltiadou str. in the Old town and Orfanidou str. in Niochori are the two main "nightlife streets" in the town of Rhodes.

Shopping in Rhodes can be a great and exciting experience. The combination of traditional and modern market offers the visitors a unique shopping experience.
