Rhodes Island, Greece

Rhodes, the largest of Greeceā€™s Dodecanese islands, is known for its beach resorts, ancient ruins and remnants of its occupation by the Knights of St. John during the Crusades. The city of Rhodes has an Old Town featuring the medieval Street of the Knights and the castlelike Palace of the Grand Masters. Captured by the Ottomans and then held by the Italians, the palace is now a history museum.

The village of Lindos features traditional white stucco buildings, a wide beach and an ancient hilltop acropolis with sweeping vistas across the Aegean to the nearby coast of Turkey. Ancient Kamiros is an archaeological site protecting the ruins of a clifftop settlement. Ialysos has the hilltop Monastery of Filerimos, surrounded by gardens and woodland. Between Lindos and Rhodes City, Faliraki Beach is a lively strip with a wide range of water activities. Prasonisi, at the southern tip of Rhodes, is popular for windsurfing. The interior of the island is home to mountain villages and wooded valleys.
