We depart from the hotel at approximately 09:00 in the morning and drive to the New Town of Rhodes. This is the modern part of Rhodes, which is built around the walls of the medieval city. We drive up to Monte Smith, the hill overlooking Rhodes Town, for a panoramic tour of the sites of the Hellenistic Acropolis, Stadium, Amphitheater and great view of the town itself.
We continue the panoramic tour through the new town, past the impressive municipal buildings like the Town Hall, the National Theater, the Church of Evangelismos, the Prefecture, the Post Office and the Courthouse. From here we drive to the “D’ Amboise gate” of the Medieval Town, where we disembark off the buses and walk inside the walled city.
The guide(s) lead the way through the narrow cobblestone streets to the majestic Grand Master’s Palace, down the imposing “street of the Knights” and then to the Museum, situated in the Hospital of the Knights of the Order of St John . The tour can either terminate now, with the guests either returning to the buses for the drive back to the hotel, staying in one of the many picturesque tavernas of the Old Town for lunch before driving back or staying on their own, for shopping and sightseeing, to make their way back to the hotel at their own discretion.
