Travel Tips for Rodos (City)
The Byzantine tower clock (Roloj).
This nice tower was built on the ruins of a Byzantine tower that was connected with the Palace of the Grand Master. In 1856 it was destroyed by the explosion of the nearby church of S. John of the Knights.
For the price of 5 euros you can go up to the top and enjoy the landscape over the town. A complimentary drink is included in the fee.
The National Theatre
The National Theatre is one of the most important cultural edifices of Rhodes City.
It is located on the large Elefterias Boulevard, in front of the Governor Palace, and at the side of the beautiful Murad-Reis Mosque.
Here, in this theatre, traditional folk’s representations take place.
Must have been one of our favouite places to eat in Rhodes new town - we found ourselves eating here 3 times! There is a quite a choice form the menu plus there are about a dozen set menus - each with choice of starters and mains in them at prices ranging from 7-14 euros for a 4 course meal. Excellent value, friendly service good quality food which was always well presented on the plate. A favourite wiith many others it was always well populated yet service was never tardy. Of the meals enjoyed here I sampled swordfish in a cheese and mustard sauce, a typical greerk dish of beef stifado and one of the most tenderest pieces of steak I've had in ages in a brandy sauce. All delicious.
The Palace of the Grand Master
The Palace of the Grand Master was built at the end of the 7th c, as a citadel of the Byzantine fortress. When the Knights of St. John established on the island, they repaired the citadel and converted it into the residence of the Grand Master. Later, the palace was used as a prison, under the Turkish rule and also under the Italians.
The square courtyard as well as part of the rooms can be visited: the Great Council Chamber, the private quarters of the Grand Master, the chapel… Many of these rooms are decorated with floor mosaics from the Hellenistic period, taken from the island of Kos.
There are also two permanent exhibitions in the ground floor rooms.
As well as the little shops and stalls both inside the new market place and its perimeter where bakeries and delicastesens can be enjoyed the new town is replete with moern shops and boutiques - all the big names are here - like Marks and Spencer, British Home Stores and designer boutiques such as United Colours of Benetton (just near the bus station). Its woth coming with some spare room in your suitcase!
