Sailing charters in Greek islands,the premium charter sailing vacations in Greece,information on sailing in aegean and greek islands Maybe it is rather futile to advise one how to approach these islands, or which would be the fastest or most convenient route. There are many ways - by airplane, by ship, yacht or boat, even by swimming. The best way to discover these islands, however, is the road of history.

Then one's soul becomes one with the Aegean; one does not want to part from these islands and the sea. If we go, memory will haunt us and call us back. Follow then an archaic, Hellenistic, Byzantine or post byzantine itinerary, and you shall see Rhodes.

The largest island of the Dodecanese. Here the sun rules all the year long, summer extends and branches into other seasons, warming them with its breath.

The famous Colossus which used to stand in the port of Rhodes, Mandraki, in Antiquity was one of the seven wonders of the world.

Rhodes Sunset

The city of Rhodes, at the north end of the island, presents a dual face. The old town is encircled by medieval castles; there are narrow lanes, stone mansions, churches, the Knights' Castle, Knights' Hospital and the Castello. Then the new city extends beyond these suggestive walls - with its wide streets, beautiful buildings, glamorous hotels and shops full of characteristic items of Rhodian folk art.
 
 
Places to see in the old town: Apart from the town the island has innumerable other interesting areas: e.g. the Valley of the Butterflies, Filerimos with its dense pine forest. Madonna monastery and ruins of ancient Ialyssos. Kameiros with its wonderful landscape and ruins of an ancient city, Kallithea, Afandou, Koskinou, Faliraki and Lindos - about 56 km. southeast of the town of Rhodes, with its ancient Acropolis full of well preserved interesting items. The history of Lindos reaches from Antiquity into the Middle Ages.

Lindos

Lindos The view from the Acropolis of Lindos is enchanting - Modern Lindos is a hospitable white painted village, built at the foot of the Acropolis; its narrow lanes, red tile roofs, old houses and bright azure sea cannot be forgotten by the visitor.
 Only 2 km. to the west from the town of Rhodes, where Monte Smith is, lies the Acropolis of Ancient Lindos. Here we can see many impressive finds, as are the ruins of a Temple of Apollo, of the ancient Stadium and the School of Music. The island has superb beaches for comfortable holidays.
