Rhodes is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Greece and very easy to reach by plane directly from many European airports, in the high season by charter and of course throughout the year via Athens. There are also excellent ferry services from the port of Piraeus.
In the junction of three continents Rhodes is known for its long and special history, its extraordinary culture and a landscape full of impressive contrasts with long, picturesque sandy beaches and stony olive groves. The island has already hosted many international events, including two EU summit meetings
The old town of Rhodes is protected by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site, especially because it is still inhabited. The whole old town is still surrounded by the city walls built by the Johanniter for protection against the Turks and at the end of one of the most beautiful medieval streets in the world, the Street of the Knights, you will see the magnificent Grand Master’s Palace. 2400 years of history and culture left their mark on the whole island.
The impeccable natural beauty and great variety of landscapes, the modern infrastructure and the cosmopolitan atmosphere, countless opportunities for active programs and great business facilities will impress even the most demanding visitor.
At this intersection of civilizations, the local cuisine has acquired elements from the three continents that surround the island, making the destination a culinary paradise.
The island offers more than 95,000 beds for every budget and with over 300 sunny days a year, the island of Rhodes holds the European sunshine record. That is why it is also called “the island of the sun”.
