Rhodes is one of the most famous and sought-after holiday destinations in Europe, and the largest Greek island located in the Aegean Sea.
Attractions include the medieval old town, the port of Mandraki, the Acropolis of Lindos, the ancient cities of Kamiros and Ialysos, and the Valley of the Butterflies, a habitat of unique value for the reproduction of the Panaxia Quadripunctaria butterfly. A landscape with eye-catching, generous natural beauty, a rich history and endless attractions make Rhodes a very popular holiday destination. Here you can find vast sandy beaches, emerald waters, castles and ancient civilizations, gourmet restaurants and traditional taverns serving local delicacies.
The contrast is marked by luxury resorts on the one hand and villages where women still bake bread in an outdoor wood-burning oven on the other. Rhodes is a timeless destination in the Dodecanese, popular since the Roman ages. Rhodes is the island of knights, the island of the mythical Colossus of Rhodes, the island where Byzantines, Greeks, Venetians and Turks have all left their mark. The island presents itself to visitors as a beautiful mosaic of cultures.
