Rhodes Town offers you two towns for the price of one !
The modern island capital of Rhodes has broad tree-lined avenues, excellent shopping, imposing public buildings, smart restaurants and nightclubs, whilst right next door the magnificent old town is a stunningley well preserved Crusader fortress city, built by the Knights of St John. wandering around the old cobbled streets it's easy to picture how Rhodes Town must have looked in the Middle Ages - despite the modern shops, tavernas and souvenir shops.
The pretty harbour at Rhodes Town, once the site of the 100-foot tall Colossus of Rhodes, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, is now full of luxury yachts. Rhodes Town is the perfect base for exploring the whole island by bus. You can even go to Kos for a day trip from Rhodes Town.
