Rhodes, a cosmopolitan town since its foundation, built at the northernmost part of the island, is its largest town and the capital of the Dodecanese. With its history starting from the Neolithic period and successive conquerors, which left their mark, Rhodes enjoys the admiration of thousands of visitors. Its name is on the list of the Seven Wonders of the World, since it was once embellished with a huge statue dedicated to Helios. The statue stood intact only for a few years but its magnificence caused such admiration that, although today there is no trace of it, it is still renowned. It is speculated that it stood at the entrance of the harbor and the feet of the towering god (31 meters) were stepping on where now are the two deer that welcome the visitors to the harbor of Rhodes. You will be easily transferred with your imagination in the era of the Knights, since the medieval town of Rhodes is kept in a very good condition. And although the cider houses have now being replaced by creperies and bars, the perambulation in the narrow and stone paved streets, from the Palace of the Grand Master to the hospital of the Knights and the many small squares, is a unique opportunity for travelling through time. The Acropolis of Rhodes is the perfect spot for admiring the sunset and enjoying a panoramic view of the town. But beyond its historical side, Rhodes is also a modern city with all the comforts of western civilization and a rich market-place.
