Spend six days wandering through the streets of Rhodes with this island-based itinerary. Though you'll start and leave from Athens, Rhodes is the focus of your trip from its Old Town streets to its sunny beaches and the small villages in between.
First, make your way to the impressive Palace of the Grand Master, also known as Kastello. Restored in 1930, the stately building houses a museum featuring mosaics and architectural exhibits from around Rhodes. Next, continue downhill toward the Street of the Knights (La Via dei Cavalieri). This completely restored passage pays homage to the town's medieval heritage. You may feel like you've stepped back in time as you learn how warriors spent their days!
Before dinner, enjoy some free time to explore the Old Town on your own, perusing shops and finding souvenirs or traditional Greek goods to take home with you. Then, meet your guide at a local restaurant to savor an optional traditional dinner of regional delicacies and local wine. Finally, the tour ends in the New Town at Mandraki Old Port.
