Reviews of Town, Rhodes
johana_tsip 25 Nov 2009Huge castle itselfRhodes town is really impressive. Is not just the town near the port that you have to spend some time, or the one that you rush to pass, in order to visit a beautiful village or beach on the island. The town itself is beautiful. The city is divided to New and Old town. The new one is mainly Italian influenced, with lots of parks and squares. The Old town is one of the best tourist attractions of Rhodes and note that it is the oldest medieval inhabited town in whole Europe. Built and protected behind tall castle walls, the old town itself is a huge castle. Many narrow or wide streets, many of them without names... make it so easy to get lost! If you do, remember to ask around for Socratous street, that's the main street of the town filled with lovely gift shops, or for Simi square. There, you can find many traditional shops and some cafes and restaurants. Visit the Palace and the Knights' Inns. You can also visit the Archaeological Museum, with the famous Aphrodite of Rhodesstatue. I would definitely suggest you to walk around the castle walls. The fortification of the city, has so many gates and towers, that it is always impressive to walk around.
olia52 11 Mar 2009Discover the small treasuresThe entire island is of course beautiful with its beaches and castles and traditional villages, but for me the highlight is Rhodes Town. This is such a romantic town!! It surely gets very busy in summer and people are almost... tumbling each other as they walk on the streets but if you let yourself free from your problems, you will enjoy a pleasant atmosphere and a chilly sea breeze that you rarely feel in other places... The Medieval Town and the Port are excellent spots for relaxing. Take some good pictures, the landscape helps a lot. Also discover the small treasures in the gift shops. You can't decide which souvernir to buy. Have in mind that there is a small boat trip for one hour that goes you around the island, very enjoyable.
marianne25 08 Jan 2009Famous for its medieval architectureI didn't stay much in Rhodes because I went to attend a conference, not for vacations. I just stayed for three days, so I saw only the town, which I found amazing. I love towns with strange architecture, so Rhodes Town was the perfect place for me. The Medieval Castles, the Old Town, the cozy cafeterias in narrow streets, the Street of the Knights... how nice memories!! People there were also great, especially the tavern owners who really smiled at you, not because they expected your money. As I went in May on the island, things were quieter than expected, still I had three wonderful days.
rousinert 09 Aug 2008Just magnificentRhodes is one the most beautiful towns I have ever seen!! I was amazed at every corner and park. The old town was extremely attracting to me, I thought knights would come out of the castles!! Definitely visit the Palace of the Great Master and also the Knights Street, the Aquarium and the acropolis of Rhodes. We didn't see much of the rest of the island, just the suburbs of the town which had great beaches. I can't find anything bad to say for this great place, you will have the best of holidays!!
