DESCRIPTION OF THE EXCURSION
Don’t miss our Rhodes City Tour with our luxury mini buses, a truly unique opportunity for every visitor to see all the sights and points of interest in the heart of the City!
After the pick ups from the hotels our City tour starts, first driving from the most important sights of the city center.
The Three Windmills which used to grind grains brought from vessels that moored in the harbor. There used to be more windmills, possibly 13 or 14 but now only three remain and they have been extensively renovated offering a popular photo opportunity !
The Mandraki harbor with very impressive monumental buildings built by the Italians. Mandraki harbor has been a harbor since ancient times. The Knights of Rhodes moored their fleet in this harbor and today is home to modern yachts.
The sculptures of Rhodian Deer, a stag and a doe, stand on slim columns on either side of the Mandraki Harbor entrance. It is believed that the statue of Colossus once stood here. Today these two charming Rhodian deer sculptures serve as the guardians of the harbor.
Continuing, we are passing in front of the Underwater Marine Aquarium. The aquarium of Rhodes is a research center, aquarium and also a museum. It was built in the 1930s, when the island was under the Italian rule and is currently administered by the National Centre of Marine Research. It offers to the visitors the chance to visit it another day and having a close up view of the marine life of the Eastern Mediterranean, providing the impression of being underwater.
Passing from Monte Smith, you can enjoy the panoramic view of the City and the sea shore, the ruins of the Temple of Apollo, the impressive open air Ancient Stadium and the Amphitheatre.
At the end of our 40 minutes driving panoramic City tour, we stop out of the one of the main gates of the famous Medieval City of Rhodes or better known as the Old Town, characterized by UNESCO as a monument of world cultural heritage.
Then, on foot, under the guidance of our Official Guide, you will have the opportunity to travel for 1 hour and 30 minutes, in the Medieval history of the island, walking to the famous Street of the Knights all the way to to the Grand Master’s Palace. The famous Order of the Knights of Saint John of Jerusalem has left an incredible mark on the island and walking around you can almost hear the hoofbeats of the horses and the whispering voices of history !The feeling of exploring the medieval streets of Rhodes is difficult to put into words. Time seems to have stopped in the middle ages and the atmosphere is shrouded in the haze of its knightly past. The cobbled streets and the Gothic towers challenge the traveler to unlock their deepest secrets.
That’s why you will have an hour-extra free time for photographs, coffee stop, buying souvenirs and discover your self the secrets of the Old City.
