Island of the Knights
An island of green hills, fertile valleys, and golden beaches, Rhodes blends cosmopolitan and traditional cultures, exemplified by its traditional taverns, upscale hotels, and archaeological sites. Nicknamed the "Island of Roses," this island offers visitors a chance to discover lively tourist resorts in the north and tranquil rural areas in the south. The island's slow pace seems utterly unaffected by the challenges of mass tourism, its permanent residents stubbornly clinging to their age-old traditions and relaxed lifestyle. As you explore the areas farther away from the busy coastline, take time to meet the garrulous locals in their natural environment, the village tavern.
