DESCRIPTION OF THE EXCURSION
The island tour is your ideal opportunity to explore the local life & discover the beauty of the island. The tour passes through traditional villages & magnificent beaches. Discover the endless beauty of Rhodes in the luxury of our air conditioned coach with the expertise of our professional guide.
The first stop is the Castle of Kritinia, a Venetian Castle of 16th century on a hill, a landscape of unspoiled beauty which offers a breath taking view of Aegean sea. We continue joining the winery – olive oil tasting and local products in Embona’s village, in one of the oldest Wineries in Rhodes island. We will drive after that to Profitis Ilias, a 1929 Italian hotel in the heart of the forest of pines, cedars and oaks trees, an ideal stop for photos or coffee.
Next stop is in Fountouklis, a Byzantine church of Saint Nikolaos which was built in 14th century and also a photo stop to Saint Nektarios in Eleousa village where grows a huge plane tree, the trunk, which is quite empty and can accommodate 3 adults. Of course there is enough time for a lunch break in a traditional taverna where you are free to choose from a big variety of traditional dishes.
The last stop is in Kalithea Springs, a majestic place known since antiquity for the thermal springs ! You are free to relax for an hour on the sandy beach for swimming, or for a cold drink on the beach – front Cafe, or visiting the Photo Gallery of Rhodes island.
