I am traveling with someone who lives history to Rhodes. Specifically, Medieval history (to the crusades).

I understand that Rhodes was a main player in this time period? Here are a few things on my list to visit. Did I miss anything?
  1. The Palace of the Grand Master: Standing majestically in the heart of Rhodes Old Town, this palace is one of the most striking reminders of the Knights' presence. It's said to be restored in the 20th century. I'm particularly interested in its history and the exhibitions hosted inside.
  2. Street of the Knights (Ippoton Street): Possibly one of the best-preserved medieval streets in the world. Walking down this street, lined with the inns once used by knights of different languages and origins, seems like a walk back in time. Any specific inns or details I should look out for?
  3. The Hospital of the Knights: Now housing the Archaeological Museum of Rhodes, it seems like a place rich in history. I'm curious about the exhibitions there and any pieces that are a must-see.
  4. The Fortifications: The walls and gates around Rhodes Old Town are a testament to the knights' engineering prowess. Is there a particular section or gate that offers a unique perspective or history?
  5. Rodini Park: A bit off the beaten path in terms of knightly history, but I've read that it's one of the world's oldest parks and was appreciated even during the era of the knights. Any historical remnants here connected to the knights?
 
Sadly Rodini park has not been well maintained. Drug addicts are known to hang out there.
Look on you tube for videos. One has made just 3 months ago
It is possible to walk along the top of the Old town wall.Not sure on what days but it MUST be done with a guide
 
Good schedule, but there are several medieval castles around the island that you should include. Kritinia and Monolithos are the most popular ones.
 
Youtube has videos of these castles

That's truly awful to hear about Rodini park. I went years ago and it was lovely - but a lot can change in 20+ years I know!
 

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?

Any Good Nightlife in Rhodes?

I am researching the possibility of going to Rhodes but there is someone in our party who likes nightlife. Can anyone share recommendations on the best places to go for a fun night out? I'm interested in a mix of experiences, from vibrant clubs to cozy bars. What are the must-visit spots for dancing, enjoying live music, or just having a relaxing drink with a great view?

Additionally, are there any particular areas in Rhodes known for their nightlife that I should check out? I'm also curious about any local customs or tips for enjoying the nightlife scene safely and respectfully.

I'd love to hear about any hidden gems or popular favorites that shouldn't be missed. Looking forward to your suggestions and any personal experiences you can share!
