Quaint Town But Not Much Else. Aug 11, 2011
Well, what can i say? Rhodes Old Town, If you have been to Greece before its probably one of those " Ive seen it all before scenarios to be honest".

Dont get me wrong, its a very nice town however most of the Greek towns are built within Old City Walls which tend to look the same. Not a great deal to do apart from looking around the Walls,Shops,Harbour etc

It was nice to get snaps of the Walls and inside the town itself but dont expect and magical photos as its not going to happen.

If you do go, be careful with the bars/restaurants as they can work out very expensive, always check the prices and if you can, go off the main street and find a nice little family owned Taverna. Always better to get away from the crowds.

Hope the info helps.

Rhodes old town Apr 20, 2011
I went to Rhodes town in 2009 and this was one of my best holidays yet. (The company was very good and that always helps)

The old town was beautiful and picturesque. Lots of tradition and culture. It is a bit like a fortress and a maize all in one, with lots of lovely touristy shops, places to eat and bars. The selling tactics can be quite pushy but i politely said no and they were fine. Everyone was so friendly and the old town is beautiful at night. The beach is very close and the new town is also practically next door. Rhodes is beautiful Greek island definitely worth it.

Medieval Town of Rhodes Jun 03, 2007
The fortified city of Rhodes was definitely my favorite stop on the entire Mediterranean cruise! Another UNESCO World Heritage Site, Rhodes offers a beautifully preserved look at the ancient world. In addition to being a UNESCO site, Rhodes also offers a look at one of the Seven Wonders of the World. The Colossus of Rhodes. Prior to its destruction, it was believed to be 107 feet high, making it one of the tallest statues in the ancient world. Today, only two columns stand, and many illustrations exist to depict what the original statue must have looked like. Interestingly enough, plans were announced in November 2008, that the Colossus will be rebuilt but light enough that people can actually enter it.

Of all the fortified cities I visited on the cruise, the city of Rhodes was definitely the most preserved. The main walls are impressive and the stores, restaurants, etc make their homes in historic buildings that still exist. Beautiful columns and arches, small streets dote the interior Old Town walls, making it almost seem unreal.

Sadly, I did not get that many pictures of the area as we were running late getting back to our ship but I hope to return soon and spend a few days exploring Rhodes!
