Private Tour Description: "Best of Rhodes"

From your selected point, you'll be driven to the Old town – Medieval City (World Heritage Site), you'll pass through one of the gateways and by the Agora and the Collachium, where the Knights of St. John of Jerusalem lived and worked, building a stronghold of Christendom in the Eastern Mediterranean. Remaining remarkably intact, the Old Town is home to the churches, marble coats of arms of the Knights, cannon balls, the inns of the Knights, and most impressive the restored Palace of the Grand Masters (Stop Photos).

Then past the imposing buildings of the New town, in neo-colonial and Italianate style, which lend grandeur to this part of the present-day town. You continue to the entrance of the old harbor, atop tall columns, stand the two bronze deer - characteristic landmarks of the island. Here, according to tradition, was the place where the famous Colossus of Rhodes, one of the seven wonders of the ancient world, once stood (Stop Visit Photos).

Near to the harbour is the Church of the Annunciation that houses amazing gothic wall paintings by Fotis Kontoglou and impressive chandeliers. Today it is the town's cathedral (Stop Visit Photos)
