Eternally appealing, there are many reasons to travel to Rhodes, largest of the Dodecanese. Broadly you could say it's sunny, sandy, beautiful, historic and delicious. Because so many folk are drawn here there's a huge range of choice when it comes to choosing the best places to stay in Rhodes. From diving resorts to campsites to traditional guesthouses to luxurious modern hotels.
Rhodes Town is the capital, with a charming Old Town that's a maze of alleyways which open out to reveal restaurants, cafes, museums and chi-chi boutiques. Heritage Listed, Old Rhodes Town has a fascinating blend of architecture, influenced by Rome, the Byzantines and the Medieval order of Knights who settled here and who're responsible for much of the fortification.
The New Town is where you'll find the waterfront bars, cosmopolitan beaches and the luxury shopping. Rhodes is a great place for foodies, partly owing to the island's verdant conditions and the bounty of the sea, so you'll really be spoiled for choice.
Whether you choose to stay in Rhodes Town, or one of the other resort towns, or a smaller fishing hamlet, you'll find plenty to do on Rhodes.
You've heard of the Colossus, right? Well, the 30 metre statue's no longer, but the best places to stay in Rhodes will find you near to plenty of other ancient archeological and mythological treasures which you can uncover.
