Book this Tour Mount Filerimos & Rhodes Town Approximate Duration: 4 hours
Rhodes Old Town First-time visitors to Rhodes are sure to enjoy this overview of essential sites. Drive along the west coast of the island before taking a winding road inland to the plateau of Filerimos, nearly 1,000 feet above sea level. Here stands the Church of Our Lady, built upon the foundations of the ancient Temple of Athena and the catacombs of early Christian times. The church was restored by the Knights of St. John and used as stables by the Turks before being rebuilt a little over 30 years ago. The restored monastery is still occupied, and the barrel-vaulted Chapel of St. George has some noteworthy 15th century frescoes. Back in Rhodes, your walking tour of the old walled town begins. Lining its stone-paved lanes are grand Medieval structures, each recalling the Knights of St. John and their Turkish conquerors. Your guide recounts the town's fascinating past as you walk along the Knights Road, one of the town's oldest and most magnificent thoroughfares. Built along the route of an ancient street dating back to 408 B.C., the road leads to the Palace of the Grand Masters, a fortress deliberately built to dominate the town and the harbors. Construction began on the palace at the beginning of the 14th century and, although destroyed in 1856, was rebuilt in 1939. The floors are covered with ancient mosaics from the island of Kos while an impressive marble staircase leads to the upper floor. From this level you'll have panoramic views over the city of Rhodes. Adding to the vitality of the old town, there are many inviting shops, giving a modern touch to the Medieval picture. Your tour concludes back at the pier.

Note: Since you are visiting a religious site, please dress respectfully; no shorts or sleeveless shirts.

Book this Tour The Acropolis of Lindos Approximate Duration: 4 hours
The Acropolis of Lindos The ancient Doric town of Lindos lies on a rocky promontory 30 miles south of Rhodes town on the island's east coast. This scenic drive passes orange and lemon groves, prosperous vineyards and gnarled olive trees. As your motorcoach makes the last bend of the road, the views of Lindos are fabulous; impressive rocky cliffs rise 400 feet from the sea dominating the town's two harbors. The imposing temple standing high above a sheer cliff dominates the town, and the striking site of the acropolis surrounded by the blue seas attracts artists from around the world. Below lies the Medieval fort and village clustered with pretty white houses and its streets paved with intricately patterned black and white pebbles collected from the sea. There is a 20-minute climb through the narrow streets of the town and another 250 steps up to the temple, so this climb is not for everyone, but very rewarding for the physically fit. Once you arrive to the top, explore ancient sites of the last conquerors including the 4th century B.C. Doric Temple of Athena Lindia with its double-winged portico. Also highlighting the acropolis is a Byzantine church, and the remains of the castle-citadel of the Knights of St. John. From the summit there are great views of the fishing harbor of Psarto, where tradition says St. Paul landed. After browsing through the village with its small shops, brimming with attractive souvenirs, return to the harbor in Rhodes by the same route.

After an approximately one-hour drive, passing by picturesque little villages, you'll arrive at the area of Lindos. From a promontory, you'll be able to see from a distance the ancient Acropolis of Lindos, which according to Homer in "The Iliad", was built by the Dorians along with the cities of Kamiros and Ialyssos and was a considerable nautical power during antiquity. Also the village of Lindos with its 1,000 inhabitants lies underneath the acropolis. You'll then re-board your coach passing by Faliraki and Kallithea and return to Rhodes town and your ship.

After a short drive you'll visit a traditional 19th century house; its interior is furnished with authentic furniture and items belonging to the 19th century. Returning to Rhodes-Lindos Road, you'll drive to the traditional village of Archangelos which is among the few villages of the island where older men and women can still be seen in traditional dress. This large and picturesque village has a tradition of carpet and pottery-making which continues to be active nowadays. You'll visit one of the local, traditionally-decorated houses where the owner will offer fresh homemade bread and local delicacies along with the Greek aperitif of ouzo. Filled with great memories from Greek hospitality, you'll board your coach for the return to your ship.

Book this Tour Ultimate Rhodes Approximate Duration: 4 hours
Church of our Lady Departing from the pier, you will be driven in a van with a small group along the west coast of the island to reach Mount Filerimos with its wonderful view of the city of Rhodes. On the top of this hill stood one of the three ancient cities of Rhodes, the city of Lalyssos. Here you can admire the Church of our Lady, built by the Knights of St. John in the 15th century, as well as that of St. George which has wall paintings from the 14th and 15th centuries. After driving back to Rhodes town you'll continue your tour on foot, following your guide through the narrow, cobblestone streets. You'll visit the most imposing building of Medieval Rhodes, the Palace of the Grand Masters which dominates the end of the Street of the Knights. Built in the 14th century, it astonishes you with its unique architecture and an unrivalled patina of time. Walking down the Street of the Knights and passing through numerous, colorful shops, you'll visit the Archaeological Museum which is housed in the 15th century Hospital of the Knights. At the end of the walking tour, you may choose to browse on your own a little longer and return to your ship on foot, or join the van and return directly to your ship. It takes approximately 10 minutes to walk to your ship.

Note: This tour is conducted in small groups and requires a minimum number of passengers in order to operate.
