I am researching potential places to visit in Greece. Rhodes is on the list because someone told me it was a great place to go to imagine the times when the Greek mythological stories were a prevalent part of the culture (Mandraki Harbor). I was thinking of spending a bit of time there. Do you have any recommendations on what else I should do while there? Some possibilities:
  • Explore the ruins from the Knights of Saint John
  • Acropolis at Lindos
  • Beaches - Faliriki, Lindos Beach, etc (did I miss any beaches - these are the ones that most intrigued me)
What else should I see? Thanks!

That's so cool! I love visiting UNESCO world heritage sites. Rhodes is a great place to visit.
 
Thank you everyone for chiming in! I can't wait for my trip. It seems like a cool place since there is an ancient history, recognizable medieval history, gorgeous beaches, wonderful culture, etc. Seems like I can see and do a lot and really enjoy it.

I am a college student traveling for a 3 day weekend in early October with my girlfriend. From what I've read, Old Rhodes is a must see and there is bus service to most of the island. I have found some reasonably priced hotels in the city of Rhodes. We were thinking of staying there for the 3 days and taking trips to see other parts of the island such as Lindos. Is that what you guys would recommend? Its seems like the city is amazing but we also want to see the beaches as well. Is it best to stay in the city of Rhodes and travel other places? And what should I expect in terms of cost when traveling to another city, for example Lindos?

  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?
