    Beautiful renovations and completion of the restored mosaics at the Grand Masters Palace. I was very pleased to see the archeological site set up from Kos. The streets are alive again. Beautiful shops from Hand made leather coats to souveniers. Restaurant are open from basic street food to fine dining and wine tasting.

    The museum is much bigger than it first appears. Lots of interesting exhibits but it would have been nice to know a bit about the building itself which was used as a hospital by the Knights of St. john. Worth the €6 entrance fee. Staff aren’t overly friendly.

    This walled city by the sea is a Mediterranean masterpiece! It's just fun strolling down the main streets and peeking in shops, most of whom have many of their items displayed on the sides of the streets. The streets themselves are cobble stone so be careful walking.

    An interesting harbour to look around. Not much shelter from the scorching sun, but the old town has sheltered spots. A huge cruise liner came in during our visit and suddenly the prices went up!

    Amazing long cobbled road leading down from the top of old Rhodes town towards the harbour. Like stepping back in time and part of old Rhodes town area.

    Pretty clean beach, cheap beach chairs. Toilets and showers. Funny beer sellers and tolerable prices.

    I was slightly put off by all the naked young men gambolling around the track but soon regained my composure after popping into the temple of Athena for a poster or two. Is it me, or are all the constructions in Rhodes in a state of collapse or in the process of being built? I think we should be told.

    The synagogue is beautiful. It's unfortunate that the current Jewish community in Rhodes (which used to comprise several thousand) is so small that it is only used in summer when there are enough tourists to make up the necessary quorum for holding prayers. The museum, in the same building, is very informative about the former Jewish community. Sometimes there are guided tours of the Jewish quarter, but not this year.

    Well worth a visit gives you amazing 360 degree views over the old town - highest point so you can see everything. The free drink is also a great bonus :-)

    While some people seem to think that the Colossus of Rhodes was located at the location of St. Nicholas Fortress, our tour guide told us that historians believe that it was really located in the courtyard of the Palace of the Grand Master of the Knights of Rhodes. It was built in 280 BC and destroyed in the earthquake of 226 BC.

    Very interesting. I didn't know any of the history and was very enlightened by our trip to the synagogue and museum.

    Glad to learn so much in a short period of time.

    It would be better if they would turn on some of the air conditioners that are there (there are many but none are turned on).

    The heat made us cut our time there short which left us without being able to learn/read everything.

    Located at Mandraki Harbour, St. Nicholas Fortress is quite impressive to see, although we were not able to tour it. It was built to defend the harbour.

    You can’t go to Rhodes Town and not walk the city walls, only 3 euros but well worth it. You can walk the most for free
