While on Rhodes over the summer, I decided to use Rhodes Town as a home base. I am researching fun things to do. I know about the usual things to see - the Knights of Saint John, Acropolis of Lindos, the old town area, and some museums.

What I am looking for are suggestions for things that are other outside of the box, or specific recommendations that personally meant a lot to you or that you enjoyed. I am so looking forward to this trip and I want t get the most of it!

I really loved visiting the archaeological site at the Lindos Acropolis. It was fun and informative and I really enjoyed the walk up!
