A conglomeration of many distinct architectural styles, Rhodes Town is the biggest urban center of the eponymous Greek island known for its golden beaches and relaxed way of life.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Medieval City. Get some cultural insight at Street of the Knights and Church of Our Lady of Filerimos.
