Traveling Rhodes on foot is one of the best ways to experience the island!! I highly recommend it for anyone who isn't traveling in big groups or with kids. I love walking around Lindos which offers whitewashed houses and beautiful architecture. You can spend hours wandering around town to admire the cafes, shops, and restaraunrts.

Lindos in Summer is too crowded with tourists especially when the cruise ships are in Rhodes Town.Today 29 June the Celebrity Apex ship is in town.Its capacity is 2,900 passengers.Most of the things for sale in the tourist shops are imported from China.Very little hand made lace is now made in the village.

I think if you get past the busy port areas in the summer, you can get away from some of the crowds. Lindos can be great, but you're right, it can also be very crowded.

Lindos can also be very crowed.Just to correct you. Lindos is very crowded especially between 10 AM & 5.30 PM .Between those times Lindos residents & people staying there head for the beaches to escape the crowd.

Do you recommend going for a late dinner and walking around at night? How is it at that time? Thanks for the insight!!

Airport taxis

Hello everyone, Newby here, so please bare with me if this question has been asked before. I will be arriving in Rhodes on Friday evening, and wondering if its cheaper to prebook a taxi or just jump in a taxi at the airport, as not sure if there is a standard rate or not. Thanks

My favorite villages to visit in Rhodes

Rhodes has some of the most beautiful villages from any of the Dodecanese islands in my opinion. I love to roam around, take pictures and stumble upon quaint restaurants with amazing locals. This is just my personal list, and of course I'm sure there are many more villages that are equally, if not more beautiful.

1. Lindos
2. Faliraki
3. Theologos
4. Rhodes Town

Birds eye view of Monolithos Castle in Rhodes

Monolithos Castle is a stunning castle that was built in the 15th century and remains until this day. This is a birds eye view of the castle so you can get a good idea of what the ruins look like. The Castle is located in the the village of Monolithos which is about a couple of miles from the city. There is no fee to get into the area and walk around and its open pretty much all day!

Greek island of Rhodes seeking to attract tourists during winter also!!

It might surprise the reader that in my first job in good ol'London town after leaving school in a package Holiday company Rhodes was a thriving winter destination together with Crete and Corfu and Epirotiki Lines were cruising around the Greek islands in the 70s....It always had been an alternative to cold weather conditions in winter months....the same as Spanish Islands..... Kalley Mera from Thailand and Monsoons raining heavily here!
