That's so sad to hear. I think she did a really good job in representing Rhodes in this video, I hope she is well soon
 
Rhodes is such a fascinating place. This video does a great job of giving an overview! There is the Medieval side of things, but also the ancient side at Lindos. So much history here.
 

Honeymoon in Rhodes?

I have to help someone plan a honeymoon in Rhodes. It can be a romantic place, especially if you love history.

I need some help, though, figuring some things out since I have only ever been here with my family. Where would you stay? What would you eat? What would you do?

Any advice you have would be great - I can think of plenty of things to see and do, and places to eat, but I've never thought about them from a romantic perspective.

Question about visiting art galleries on Rhodes

I'm planning a trip to the island of Rhodes and I love art. I'm on a quest to uncover the most remarkable galleries the island has to offer. The blend of ancient history and local modern talent in Rhodes fascinates me, and I want to immerse myself in its vibrant art scene.

Whether it's contemporary art, classic pieces, local crafts, or even lesser-known galleries that captivate the essence of Rhodes, I'm eager to explore it all. I believe that art has a unique way of capturing the spirit of a place, telling stories that transcend time and language barriers.

Does any of you have anything to recommend?

Worth visiting the botanical garden on Rhodes?

Is it worth visiting the botanical garden on Rhodes? I think it's called the Sacratous Garden? Or are they two different places. I've heard so much about its stunning landscapes, diverse flora, and tranquil atmosphere, making it a must-see destination for nature lovers. However, I have a couple of questions and I was hoping someone here could share their insights or experiences:
  1. Best Time to Visit: What's the best season or time of year to visit the botanical garden to see it in all its glory? Are there any specific months when the garden is particularly vibrant or hosts special flora?
  2. Must-See Highlights: For those who have been, what are some must-see highlights within the garden that you'd recommend? Any particular sections or rare plants that I shouldn't miss?
  3. Guided Tours: Are there guided tours available? If so, would you recommend taking one to enhance the visit, or is the garden easy to explore independently?

Best Food Experiences to Have on Rhodes?

I'm planning a trip to Rhodes and am eager to dive into its culinary scene. I'm looking for recommendations on the best culinary experiences the island has to offer.
  • Must-Try Dishes: What traditional dishes should I not miss?
  • Top Restaurants and Tavernas: Which spots are renowned for authentic local cuisine?
  • Local Markets: Are there any markets where I can sample local produce and street food?
  • Unique Food Experiences: Any cooking classes, food tours, or wine tastings you’d recommend?
I'm a fan of fresh, local ingredients and love discovering hidden gems, whether it's a seaside taverna or a bustling market stall. Any tips or personal experiences would be greatly appreciated!

Tips for spending the day in Lindos

I'm planning a day trip to the charming town of Lindos on the island of Rhodes and thought it'd be helpful to share some tips and insights for anyone looking to explore this picturesque destination. From its whitewashed buildings nestled against azure skies to its rich historical tapestry, Lindos promises an unforgettable experience. Here are some must-know tips to make the most of your day:

  1. Early Start: Beat the crowds and the midday heat by starting your day early. Not only will you get stunning photos of the Acropolis with fewer tourists, but the cooler morning air makes the climb more pleasant.
  2. Comfortable Footwear: Speaking of climbing, ensure you wear sturdy, comfortable shoes. The paths up to the Acropolis are steep and can be slippery, especially in flip-flops or sandals.
  3. Hydration is Key: The Greek sun can be unforgiving, especially in the summer months. Carry a water bottle with you to stay hydrated throughout the day. There are several shops where you can buy water, but it's always good to have it on hand.
  4. Explore the Village: Wander the labyrinthine streets of Lindos village. Its unique charm lies in the blend of medieval, Byzantine, and Rhodian architecture. Don’t forget to step into the quaint boutiques and local artisan shops for souvenirs.
  5. Beach Time: No visit to Lindos is complete without relaxing on one of its beautiful beaches. Whether you choose the main Lindos beach or the more secluded St. Paul's Bay, you'll find crystal-clear waters perfect for cooling off after a morning of exploration.
  6. Dining with a View: For lunch or an early dinner, pick a rooftop restaurant overlooking the Acropolis or the sea. The view coupled with authentic Greek cuisine will make for an unforgettable meal. Remember, it's customary to enjoy meals at a leisurely pace in Greece, so soak in the scenery and savor the flavors.
  7. Respect the Site: The Acropolis of Lindos is an ancient site, so remember to respect the ruins. Follow posted guidelines, don’t remove any stones, and always stay on designated paths to preserve this historical treasure for future generations.
  8. Stay Sun-smart: Apply sunscreen regularly throughout the day, wear a hat, and seek shade during the hottest parts of the day (usually between 12 PM and 3 PM).
  9. Evening Stroll: As the day cools down, take an evening stroll through the village once more. The changing light offers a different perspective and photographic opportunities of this beautiful place.
  10. Plan Your Visit: Finally, while spontaneous exploration is part of the adventure, having a rough plan can help you maximize your time in Lindos, ensuring you see all its highlights.
Lindos encapsulates the essence of Rhodes – a blend of history, beauty, and relaxed island vibe. Whether you're here for the historical sites, the beaches, or just to wander through its enchanting streets, Lindos won't disappoint.
