    The administrative center of the Dodecanese group, Rhodes, welcomes visitors from the shores of Fethiye and Marmaris. One of the most popular islands of our neighbor Greece, Rhodes offers you the chance to experience a different culture with extremely easy access while enjoying the sun, sea, and sand.

    If you are ready to explore the natural beauty, ancient archaeological sites, and world-renowned beaches of Rhodes Island, here are the must-see places in Rhodes.

    1. Old Town

    Old Town, or Eski Şehir, is considered the heart of Rhodes. Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site, this area is home to numerous tourist attractions. Recognized as one of Europe’s largest and best-preserved medieval towns, Old Town Rhodes is often the first stop for tourists. The cobblestone streets and antique restaurants are key highlights, along with popular sites like the Palace of the Grand Master and the Street of the Knights. Exploring the area on foot is highly recommended to fully appreciate its charm.

    2. Acropolis of Lindos

    The Acropolis of Lindos is an archaeological treasure that has been controlled by many civilizations throughout history. Perched on a 120-meter high rock, the acropolis offers a stunning view directly over the sea. A visit here provides a panoramic view of much of Rhodes. To reach the Acropolis, you’ll need to walk along a path, but the effort is well worth it. The site features 20 Hellenistic columns and numerous temple ruins. Additionally, there is a popular beach nearby.

    Entrance Fee:

    • Full ticket: €10
    • Reduced ticket: €5

    Visiting Hours:

    • Open every day except Monday, from 08:00 to 15:00.

    3. Hippocrates Square

    Hippocrates Square is one of the most iconic spots on Rhodes Island. Located in Old Town, it is the busiest area in terms of foot traffic. If you are looking for unique gifts to bring back to loved ones, this is the place to spend the most time, as you can find antique shops and souvenir stores on every corner. The square also serves as an ideal resting spot thanks to the cafes and restaurants surrounding it. A short walk from the square will lead you to the impressive Rhodes Clock Tower, and both the Archaeological Museum and Castellania Library are within walking distance.

    4. Tsambika Monastery

    Tsambika Monastery is one of the two significant monasteries on Rhodes Island. Its stunning sea views are a major draw for visitors. Situated on a hill, this historic site is known for its unique architecture. You can visit the monastery by following the road from Old Town to Archangelos. It is also a main stop on many boat tours in the area. The monastery is located 25 km from the city center and requires climbing 300 steps to reach.

    5. Mandraki Harbor and Windmills

    Mandraki Harbor is one of the three harbors on Rhodes dedicated to yachts. Although it once housed the Colossus of Rhodes, no remnants of this wonder remain. You can visit the medieval windmills and various deer statues in the harbor area. Additionally, you will find St. Nicholas Fortress here. Historically, Mandraki Harbor served as a military port for Rhodes. The windmills, originally used to grind grain brought by ships, are mostly in ruins, but three have been restored.

    6. Elli Beach

    Elli Beach, one of the closest beaches to the city center, is frequently visited by tourists. Located between Rhodes Aquarium and Mandraki Harbor, it is a favorite for those looking to combine relaxation with entertainment. You can rent umbrellas and sunbeds at the beach, and there are many restaurants and famous tavernas nearby. A small market known as the “Turkish Market” is also located close to the beach. Its central location makes it a popular choice for visitors. The beach was famously described by British author Lawrence Durrell as “the most beautiful beach in the Mediterranean.”

    7. Faliraki Beach

    Faliraki Beach is a great destination for enjoying neon lights and a lively atmosphere late into the night. The beach features colorful umbrellas and offers various adrenaline-pumping activities, including bungee jumping. There’s also a water park for children. A popular beach bar adds to the appeal of Faliraki. Those looking for a quieter spot can visit the nearby Kathara Beach.

    8. Palace of the Grand Master

    The Palace of the Grand Master, a prominent historical site on the UNESCO list, is located at the highest point of the Old Town. Its elevated position offers perfect panoramic views. Protected by triple walls, the castle is an impressive structure. It was built by the Knights of St. John over an old Byzantine castle. Although the castle originally had 150 rooms, only about 20 are open to visitors today. The mosaic floors and towers are particularly admired by visitors.

    9. Valley of the Butterflies

    Located 27 km from the city center, the Valley of the Butterflies is a must-visit during the summer. Near the village of Theologos, this valley is home to a unique butterfly species. During the summer, you can see the “Jersey Tiger” butterflies. The sweetgum trees add to the valley’s natural beauty, making it a favorite among photographers.

    Author’s Note: You can join local tours to explore the valley, located on the island’s west side.

    10. Monolithos Castle

    Monolithos Castle, located 70 km south of the island, gives its name to the nearby village. Built in 1480 to protect against pirate attacks, the castle bears the Venetian signature. Positioned 90 meters above sea level, the castle is not surrounded by walls due to its steep cliffs. Although not as well-preserved as other castles on the island, it is often visited for its unique views.
