Overview Of The Port Of Rhodes

About Rhodes
Rhodes is an island in Greece, located in the eastern Aegean Sea. It is the largest of the Dodecanese islands.

The Old Town is easily explored on foot, be aware of uneven pavements and cobblestones, comfortable shoes are advisable. Handmade lace, excellent leather goods, colourful pottery from Lindos and bowls carved from olive wood all made excellent gifts. For the best deals, head for Soukratos, which runs parallel to the Avenue of the Knights. It's home to a Turkish Bazaar selling rugs, ceramics, jewellery and bric-a-brac.

The Old Town is packed with medieval buildings, mosques, traditional fountains, oriental motifs, Byzantine and Gothic churches. There are around 200 streets or lanes that simply have no name, ask for Sokratous Street, which is the closest the Medieval City comes to having a main street when you need to find your bearings!

The Palace of the Grand Masters has an imposing entrance and well built towers and battlements. The interiors of the buildings, decorated with priceless treasures, are equally impressive.

Visitors also choose to visit Lindos, once the most important town on the island, now a National Historic Monument. Its acropolis sits some 116m above sea level. Below is a sandy beach that's bordered by alfresco restaurants, and beautiful 17th-century whitewashed houses are scattered up the hillside. Here you can also visit the Church of Agia Panagia, which dates from the 15th century. You can also walk up the steep steps to the acropolis for one of the best views in Greece and the chance to explore the tiny Temple of Athena, which dates from 4th Century BC. Lindos is about 55km from Rhodes Town.

Rhodes is famous for it's gorgeous beaches, Akti Miaouli in Rhodes Town and the beach at nearby Ixia are but two to choose from.

Traditional dishes include 'keftedes' (meatballs), 'pastitsio' (baked beef and pasta dish) and 'moussaka' (aubergine and lamb dish). For the sweet tooth, try the 'baklava' (phyllo pastry with nuts) and 'loukoumades' (deep fried doughnuts).
Cruise Terminal
Cruise ships dock at the Commercial Port to the east of the Old Town, which is only a few minutes walk away.
