Rhodes, Greece overview

Legend has it that Apollo blessed this isle with sunshine and beauty. True to the myths, the "Island of Roses" is rich in magnificent scenery and umbrella-lined beaches. Take an excursion to Lindos, where high on a hill rises an ancient acropolis dedicated to the goddess Athena. You will also want to see the medieval Old Town, once home to the Crusading Knights of St. John, and tour the Grand Master's Palace, an Italian restoration famed for its superb mosaic floors.

Rhodes was one of the nicest stops on the cruise. The Old Town is just 2 minutes walk outside the cruise port. We hired a cab at €50 each & driver brought us to a number of sights and then on to Faliraki Beach which was lovely & sandy and not too deep. We hired 2 sunbeds with umbrellas for €5.00 each and stayed for 5 hours. Taximan told us where to meet him which was at a fantastic restaurant called Something Different where we had a gorgeous lunch of gyros at extremely reasonable price. Owner was really lovely and chatted with us until Michael the driver came back for us on time. He brought us back to the port where we finished off the day shopping for souvenirs. Lovely town.

Don't book the shore excursion to the beach! There is a beach about 15 minutes walking distance and you can pay 5 euros per person for an umbrella and chair and you can order great food and drinks- what a great way to spend the day!
