Turn back the clock
History buffs: on your marks! The Acropolis of Lindos is a good place to start. The ruins stand proud on the hillside, where you can gaze at the sea below. Just follow the footpath to the well-preserved columns. There’s also the Palace of the Grand Masters and Rhodes Old Town.
Fun in the sun
Boasting the perfect recipe for beaches – warm weather, clean sands, clear waters – Rhodes has everything for an idyllic seafront getaway. And when you’re not at the beach, you can enjoy the water elsewhere. Faliraki’s Water Park has all-thrills slides, while the Aquarium of Rhodes showcases different species of fish and sea turtles.
Modern v classic
Once you’ve done all the top historic sites in Lindos and around the island, Rhodes’s New City and Old Town are worth experiencing. In both, shop for silver jewellery, tiles, wine, souvenirs and more. How about a night at Rhodes Casino, for a flutter in lavishly decorated surroundings?
