Why take this tour?

Explore Rhodes in the company of an expert local guide who will bring to life the past of this long-standing powerhouse of Greek culture. Starting from the beautiful Mandraki Harbour, the former location of the most famed statue in ancient times, the Colossus of Rhodes. Wander the area featuring the varied Italian architecture including the sites of Nea Agora (New Market), Teatro Puccini (National Theatre), Casa del Fascio (House of Fascism) and the Palazzo Governale, with its arched colonnade of Venetian-style splendour. Visit Symis Square and the impeccably preserved Street of the Knights in the Old Town. Even get a taste of Rhodes's local culture with a sip of souma liqueur – a true local delicacy. Spend the day getting to know this important seaside city with a friendly local.

Rhodes is the largest island in the Dodecanese – a165-island medley that makes up the eastern sections within the Sea of Crete. On this exploratory day with a local guide, take to the streets to explore the places and spaces that make this historic city unforgettable.

Meet your guide – an expert on local history and culture near the two statues – Elefos and Elafina that now stand in the space once dominated an impending ancient – the Colossus of Rhodes. Grow more and more fascinated by its story – learning of its symbolism and prominence in the ancient world.

Depart the harbour to wander the nearby areas, pausing before the varied Italian architecture, including the sites of Nea Agora (New Market), Teatro Puccini (National Theatre), Casa del Fascio (House of Fascism) and the Palazzo Governale, with its arched colonnade of Venetian-style splendour.

As your day grows, walk into the Old Town and through the Street of the Knights, the main stretch with its medieval and resurrected streets – a great way to envision the past. Learn about the surrounding buildings' various functions including the location of government offices as well as cultural institutions. Head to the Archaeology Museum of Rhodes to view it from the exterior (maybe entice you to visit on your own at another time?) Even get a taste of Rhodes local culture with a sip of souma liqueur – a true local delicacy.

Wrap up your day in front of the Suleymaniye Mosque, built by the Ottoman Empire as Rhodes's very first mosque, it still stands as a reconstructed symbol of past powers.
