Rodini Park of Rhodes: The impeccably landscaped Rodini Park is renowned for its cool and tranquil atmosphere. This beautiful park is ideally located just outskirts of the town. It is a mere 3 km away from the city center of Rhodes. The park is replete with trees like cypress and pine. There is also a swift-flowing stream in close proximity to the park. If there are children accompanying you, there is an exclusive playground for the young ones as well as a mini zoo.
The Rodini Park has the unique distinction of being the world's first landscaped park. This park was very popular with the Romans and they even built an aqueduct here. Inside the park's premises, there are peacocks galore that are residents of the park. There is a well-defined walkway that extends all the way to the stream.
For the energetic ones, a 10 minutes walk is all it takes to be face to face with an ancient tomb which is believed to be the tomb of Ptolemies which has been dug into the rock. The tomb dates back to the Hellenistic period and is conspicuous by 21 half columns that are distinctly Doric in terms of architecture.
