Embark on a scenic drive passing through Rhodes Town and up to Mount Smith Hill, named after the British admiral who was stationed there at the time of the Napoleonic Wars. From this spectacular vantage point, admire the impressive views of the Acropolis of Rhodes, including the scattered ruins of the temple of Athena, the Temple of Apollo, the Ancient stadium of Diagoras and the port below.
Upon arrival at the Valley of the Butterflies, your guide will escort you along the peaceful walkways, surrounded by thousands of butterflies attracted by the sweet scent of the Oriental Sweetgum tree. As you stroll along, have your camera ready to capture the natural beauty of the small waterfalls, rock pools and rustic bridges.
Returning to Rhodes Town, follow in the footsteps of the Knights of St John during a walking tour of the old parts of the city. Explore the Palace of the Grand Master, with its magnificent treasures and superb mosaics from the island of Kos. As you meander through a maze of stone paved lanes you’ll also pass the amazing medieval buildings, towers and emblazoned facades. Once at Museum Square, enjoy some free time to shop or simply sit back and relax in one of the many street cafés.
