I’m planning a trip to Rhodes, Greece, and I've heard that the island is not just about stunning beaches and breathtaking landscapes, but it’s also rich in culture and offers a variety of festivals throughout the year. I’m really excited about the possibility of aligning my visit with one of these cultural events!

Can anyone share recommendations for festivals in Rhodes? I’m interested in anything from traditional Greek celebrations to music, art, and food festivals. Anything that will allow me to soak in the local culture and make my trip even more memorable.

I usually just "see the sites" when I am in Greece. This is my second time on Rhodes, so now I am looking for something different to do.
 
The biggest festivals are New Year & Easter.This year Easter is in early May.Villages have so called festivals. They are mainly just street markers selling carpets ,clothes, shoes & a lot of childrens toys.Some villges have "' festivals"" for food ie selling strawberries , mellon , oranges & olives

The Medieval festival of Rhodes does not happen every year.

The Medieval festival looks like a good time! I think it's back on since Covid, right?

Some other ideas:
  • Lindos Acropolis Events: Cultural events held at the ancient Lindos Acropolis, including music concerts, theater performances, and art exhibitions.
  • Rhodes Summer Festival: A diverse program of music, dance, theater, and film screenings, held at various venues across the island.
  • Hippocrates Festival: Celebrating the legacy of Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine, with lectures, workshops, and wellness events.
  • Symi Festival: An annual cultural extravaganza on the nearby island of Symi, featuring traditional music, dance, and food.
 

Rhodes tips for couples

I am looking for tips about visiting Rhodes for couples. I will be traveling with my significant other and no one else, and this is a first traveling without other people. I am excited!

We're looking for recommendations to make the most of our time on this beautiful island. Specifically, we're interested in:
  • Charming Places to Stay: We'd appreciate suggestions for quaint, romantic accommodations that offer a memorable experience.
  • Must-See Attractions: What are the top sights that we should not miss while in Rhodes?
  • Romantic Dining: Any hidden gems or restaurants with a romantic ambiance that would be perfect for a couple?
  • Secluded Spots: Are there any less-traveled beaches or quiet spots for some quality time away from the crowds?
  • Local Experiences: We're keen on engaging in activities or experiences unique to Rhodes – anything that's a bit off the beaten path.
  • Travel Tips: Any general advice on navigating Rhodes as a couple – transportation, safety, or local customs we should be aware of?
Thanks so much!

Nightlife in Rhodes - Faliraki

I have some friends who went to Rhodes last year and they said they observed that Faliraki has some good nightlife. Is this true?

Could anyone share some insider tips or personal experiences about the best spots to enjoy the evening?

Specifically, I’m looking for:
  • Clubs that have a great atmosphere and awesome music.
  • Bars or pubs where I can meet new people and have some good conversation.
  • Any places known for live music or unique entertainment.
I will only be there for a few days and I might only have a night to spend doing that kind of thing before I move on to another part of Greece. Trying to see a lot this time.

Visiting the Ruins of Kimaros?

I'll be traveling to Rhodes soon and I'm very interested in visiting the ruins of Kamiros. I've heard it's one of the island's hidden gems and a must-see for history buffs. Has anyone here visited? If so, I'd love to hear your advice and any tips you have for making the most out of the trip.

A few specific questions I have:
  1. Best time to visit – When is the best time of day to go to avoid crowds and heat?
  2. Getting there – Is it better to rent a car or take public transportation?
  3. Guided tours – Are there any recommended guides or tours that provide a deeper understanding of the site's history?
  4. What to bring – Any essentials I should pack for the trip?
  5. Nearby attractions – Are there any other interesting spots nearby worth checking out?
Any other tips or personal experiences would be greatly appreciated!

moving to rhodes & problems

I was asked today by a british couple about moving post brexit. It is extremely difficult.first you have the 90 day rule meaning you have to leave after 3 months.So In that time , you have to either find a landlord willing to give a contract or purchase a property.To do the latter you must employ a greek lawyer & a greek accountant.then you can apply for a biometric residents card ( mine took 2 months & many visits to the greek police.you need the card to apply for a greek driving licence. ( you cannot drive long term on a UK licence ) . Once yoy reach 76 you cannot rent a car . Also need the card to apply for IKA book.that entitles you to health care.proof of address is required to get a phone line & broadband.you also need a contract or property deeds to get water & electric supply.a landlord may already have those & you will get the bills from them .
I am so gratefull I moved before Brexit.
