Rhodes – a holiday on the island of knights and sunny beaches
Created by Mondo for Finnair
Even the most seasoned traveller will stop in front of the Old Town Walls of Rhodes and sigh deeply: it is simply a vision. Sheltered by these massive walls, the Knights of St John defended their island and Europe for over two hundred years against the Ottoman Empire. A holiday in Rhodes offers a great slice of history—and much more.
Rhodes is a holiday destination like no other. Rather than ancient, Rhodes is more mediaeval in character. Similar mediaeval milieu can be found nowhere else in Greece. The lovely beaches of Rhodes are more reminiscent of the Greece we know, and they start immediately outside the Old Town. In addition to sunbathing and swimming, a holiday in Rhodes is also a journey into history.
The labyrinthine Old Town is made for adventure. The thousands of Rhodes residents living in the Old Town guarantee that despite the many souvenir shops, the streets and alleyways are also full of normal daily life and authentic atmosphere. The restaurants, tavernas and cafés of Rhodes offer welcome respite to travellers and locals alike. Immerse yourself in the inviting ambiance of the Old Town tavernas and raise a toast to the brave knights!
