If you are staying in Rhodes then a visit to the Old Town is a must-do. The oldest inhabited medieval town in Europe, a mass of around 200 streets or lanes, most of which are nameless. This is a collection of photos from our time in the Old Town of Rhodes as opposed to guide but here’s a couple of pieces of advice:
If you are planning to visit do bear in that driving is restricted and parking spaces can be hard to come across at peak times. In hindsight we wish we had taken a taxi there from the Mark Warner Levante resort where we stayed rather than using a hire car.
There are many places to eat and drink, with more charming and less touristy places to be found away from the main street.
Two attractions I would recommend are the Archaeological Museum of Rhodes (Hospital of the Knights), located next to the Street of the Knights and the Palace of the Grand Master of the Knights of Rhodes.
And now, the photos…
There are many cafes and restaurants to chose from in Rhodes Old Town. In the busier squares there is much touting for custom however we chose to eat in a quieter area, Socrates Street, further on ‘up’ past the Grand Master’s Place at Rusitco Taverna. They have a large menu and a menu of cheaper smaller meals, perfect if you have children. Homemade hamburger, chips and salad under 4 euros, Greek Salad under 5 euros and Kebab under 6 euros. We were given complimentary Ouzo after our meal too (good times!)
I hope you enjoyed this little flavour of Rhodes and if you have any must visit places do share in the comments below.
