Bus from Old town to Lindos is 5.50 euros one way. Takes about 1.5 hours going through several villages on the way.Buses do mostly come on time.

Is it cheaper to take a taxi? I know taxis in Athens are pretty cheap, and if you are traveling in a group it's cheaper to take a taxi rather than a bus. Is Rhodes the same way?

A taxi will only hold 4 passengers & costs 62 euros one way.So bus is much cheaper @ 5.50 euros per person

Yes it is expensive.Taking into account not only the cost of the property. There is the annual property tax to pay.you MUST employ a Greek lawyer & accountant to help you buy. They are not cheap .So renting is the way to go.In the 12 years so far I have lived on Rhodes ,I am now in 6th property.My current rent is 300 euros a month for a 1 bedroom appartment with 2 large L shaped patios & very large garden.

I rent a apartment in Afandou village.I do not recommend using any web site.You MUST look at a property & not rely on an agency. YOU MUST check the location in great detail before renting. Just go to the area you want to rent & just ask around in tavernas & bars.That is what I have always done with great success.

Do you rent the same place every year? Or get a different place? I'm assuming if you visit the same area often it's much easier to find a reputable place because you have connections and get to know where is nicer in the area. This is what I struggle with, I don't go to Greece often so it's hard to scope out trustworthy apartments. My mother stays with me and shes older so it's easier to get an apartment rather than a hotel because we need a kitchen

Take a day trip to Symi island from Rhodes

Taking a day trip is the easiest way to see many of the islands in Greece. Symi is a pretty small island, so I don't recommend spending many days there. What you can do is take a short ferry to the island and spend it walking around, exploring and heading to the beach. If you're lucky, you'll be able to check out the annual music festival which features artists from around Greece.

Another earthquake hits waters near the island of Rhodes

Another earthquake hit the waters near island of Rhodes this week, it was pretty small and there aren't any damages or losses on the island itself. Many of the islands suffer pretty frequent earthquakes because of their proximity to volcanic and tectonic plates. The island is prepared for this and takes many precautionary measures. The earthquake was 4.5 magnitude which would usually cause slight damage to buildings but gladly it was in the water.

Palace of Grand Masters being converted

work to start soon to convert it into cafe / restaurant .

The best wineries to visit in Rhodes

I've done quite a bit of research about the different types of wines in Rhodes and what wineries produce the best wine. Of course, wine are always up to your personal taste and no one can truly tell you what is the best wine for you. The most popular and successful wineries in Rhodes are Alexandris Family Winery, Kounakis, Tatakis, Kounakis and Piperis. If you've been to any of these, please let me know how your experience was!

If you love history, Rhodes should be your next destination!

When many people think of travelling to Greece for history, they may think of Athens or Crete… but I'm here to tell you that Rhodes is one of the best places to visit if you love history. The island is full of mediaeval history and has some of the most beautiful and old mediaeval architecture in all of Greece. Some of the best places to explore this history are Ancient Kamiros, Palace of the Grand Master, and the archeological museum of Rhodes.
