HALF DAY RHODES CITY TOUR

We commence our tour with a beautiful scenic drive through the modern part of Rhodes town, along the Mandraki Esplanade where we will see the government buildings, the church of annunciation (built in 1925), copy of the old Church of the Knights of St. John (which was destroyed in 1856), and the deer statues standing at the entrance of Mandraki Port. It was said that the Colossus of Rhodes probably stood here, one of the eight Wonders of the Ancient World.

We continue our drive up to Monte Smith, where we have breathtaking views of Rhodes town and the Aegean Sea. Mount Monte Smith houses the acropolis of Rhodes and the ancient stadium which was built 2nd century BC. We proceed to the old city of Rhodes. Once we have reached the old city, we proceed by foot through the gate of Amboise. Visit the Grand Masters Palace, which was built in the 14th century, destroyed in 1856 and rebuilt in 1939 by the Italians, in order to accommodate the King of Italy victor Emmanuel 11 and Mussolini. After our tour of the palace, we proceed by foot down the street of the knights where we see the many inns once occupied by the crusaders. At the end of the street we then come to the archaeological museum, which was the knights' hospital built in 1440, it is the most magnificent and well-preserved building in the old town. Our tour ends after the tour of the museum, some free time before we board our buses to be taken back to our hotels.
