    Ippokratous Square (Old Town)

    by Christianne Updated Jun 6, 2007
    Ippokratous Square

    Favorite thing: From the Gate or the Port you get in the Old Town. On the left part is Ippokratous Square. From this point starts the famous street Sokratous, one of the most commercial streets of Rodos.

    4 more images

    Favorite thing: What can happened while sitting in street restaurant in Mandraki harbour of Rhodes of Greece?

    Fondest memory: MANDRAKI HARBOUR GREECE MAY 2007
    I was sitting in small street kitchen in Rhodes Mandraki harbour and waiting for my dinner excellent Greece speciality of Moussaka . I tasted my starter garlic bread, beer and ouzo with water.

    Something happened front of me.

    Front table´s lady came to my table and show what another man had done from me.
    Portrait to tables´cloth.
    The lady was from LINDA´S SAILING ADVENTURES and much younger than me, with her teams.
    The artist was British born man and nowadays retirement and lived the last eight years in Greece.
    I got this portrait and I´ll put later this to my Finnish saunas honourable place in Finland.
    If the artist will come to Finland he has my personal (payed immediately with one cup of red wine in this street restaurant to the artist) VIP invite to come and spend real Finnish sauna time with me.

    Notice
    I put this pics(portrait) to my flickr´s pages and my wife who was temporary visit in Tokyo to grandchild's look it and all said; "yes...the same man."

  • Going to the bathroom/john/loo/wc/toilet.

    by Englischer Written Apr 3, 2007

    Favorite thing: Any of the above that involve sitting down and doing your business may cause you to wonder what the bin nearby is for? Answer to place your used toilet paper in! Greek plumbing uses much smaller bore pipes than most of the western world, so if you flush your paper and block the works up you will not be popular. I find this practice unpleasant but this is the way so please comply- but do not forget to wash those hands afterwards!!!!

    Fondest memory: Having a lazy 2 hour lunch at Mama Sofia's was my most enjoyable experience, but what I miss the most is the dusty air (thank heavens).

    Stegna
    4 more images

    Fondest memory: Just behind the town of Archangelos (take the road towards the coast for a couple of Kilometres) is the purpose built resort of Stegna. Good facilities and choice of tavernas but still retaining a quiet peaceful air. We visited here the day after the downpour we had iduring our stay in Oct 2006 so the beach was just recovering from the debris and mud. The beach side tavernas and B&B places looked charming and a great place for a mid moring drink, just sitting enjoying the vistas and a stroll along the promenade. This is another place that would be good to come to for a chill out week.

    vieew over Archangelos
    4 more images

    Favorite thing: Archangelos is a large white village on the east coast of Rhodes, some 33km south of Rhodes town. More of a sprawling town now and very much a working town and the best views come from yet another castle of the Knights of St John - lost count of all the castles that we saw and climbed in a weeks holiday! Just follow signs for the acropolis to ascend the castle ruins here. On the walls heraldic shields of the Knights can be seen.

    Agathi Beach
    2 more images

    Favorite thing: Oct 2006 we made it to Agathi beach - we didn't even have to climb the hill to Fecalos Castle and down the other side to reach it - the bumpy old track is now a decent road down and cars can be parked just behind the beach tavernas - so really handy. The sand here is beautiful and the water clean. Can be a bit of a swell and its fun riding the surf - but perhaps not so safe for children if unsupervised. This was definitely our most favourite beach on Rhodes. Smallish but not over-developed. or overcrowded A couple of tavernas serving good food and sunbeds for hire.

    Haraki Bay

    Fondest memory: Haraki was such an idlyllic place to unwind - I'm also reluctant to mention it much in case it becomes too popular! Its still relatively undeveloped and apartment and hotel backing the promenade of the curving bay are not high rise and the shady trees and flowers added to its picturesque setting. As you can see from the pic the usual sunbeds and parasols can be hired.

    Kolymbia

    by gale.blog.pl Written Aug 20, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Typical view
    3 more images

    Favorite thing: Kolymbia is a typical tourist bedroom-village, packed with hotels, poor quality restaurants, noisy bars and cheap shops offering not only basic food and beachwear but also Chinese plastic dolphins that act as souvenirs from Rhodes.

    There's nothing really interesting about Kolymbia but I must admit that it is well maintained, clean and tourist friendly.

    The village itself is located right in the middle of the way from Rhodes town to Lindos. To get by car to Kolymbia Beach, the tourist site, you need to take a turn left from the road Rhodes-Lindos. The crossroads are quite important as there are two large supermarkets there, very convenient for some larger shopping.

    Tourist Information

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: This is a very important spot of Rhodes. The Tourist Information office is located near Mandraki harbour, very close to the Bus Station and the Municipal Market.

    I found the office extremely helpful. The staff speaks at least English and German. You can get get lots of valuable and useful infomation here, related to both the town and the island. Here you can also pick your bus schedule, city and island map etc.

    Maps of Rhodes

    by gale.blog.pl Written Aug 9, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Rhodes Town

    Favorite thing: Maps of both the town and the island are widely distributed free of charge. They contain advertisements of shops, restaurants, car rentals etc. but most of them are not less useful than those ones you need to pay for.

    That is why I recommend that you don't buy a map on your first day in Rhodes. The 'commercial' versions are not expensive at all but why spend money on something you can have free of charge ;-)

    MAP OF RHODES TOWN

    Favorite thing: There is a usefull map located in the centre of the town which tells you exactly where you are, we found this very usefull because all the little streets inside the walled town look almost the same and you don't want to be going round in circles do you

    Building

    Favorite thing: Do you want to explore the city of Rodos?
    The best starting point is Cyprus Square in the center of the city. Around the square the area is full of jewelry shops, fashionable boutiques and banks.
    On the picture you can see one of the beautiful buildings of the city of Rodos which If I well recall is a hotel.

    Mandraki
    1 more image

    Favorite thing: This used to be the naval port of ancient Rodos and the entrance used to be closed by chains.
    Nowadays, the entrance instead of chains has two statues, a male and female deer, standing on two columns.
    In the port you can see, fishing boats, yachts and cruise boats which make daily cruises to the surrounding islands.
