Rhodes Shore Excursion: Half day city tour
Start with a Panoramic drive through the New Town, past Mandraki Port, the Post Office, Town Hall, Evangelismos Church and continue to the Monte Smith Hill which offers a magnificent view of the Aegean and the City. The drive continues past the ancient Rhodes Acropolis dedicated to Zeus Polieus, Athena Polias and Pythian Apollo. Four columns of this Acropolis have been reconstructed. The final drive-by is past the 2nd century ancient Stadium and Theatre, of which both have been restored.
From there the excursion continues to the D’ Amboise Gate where the guests disembark and on foot enter the Medieval City to visit the Grand Master’s Palace, the most imposing building of medieval Rhodes. It was originally built in the 14th Century, but demolished by an explosion in 1856. It was restored in 1939, during the Italian occupation. The excursion continues down ‘The Street of the Knights,’ which, in spite of the restoration of its buildings, has remained untouched by the passage of 500 years, since it was originally built in the 14th century. The Gothic order predominate the entire street. The Inns of the various ‘Tongues’ stand in a row, with impressive arched doorways, their emblems carved above them. The final visit is to the Archaeological Museum, which is housed in the restored building of the 15th century Hospital of the Knights.
