Discover the island's medieval capital, Rhodes Town, by trolley train and then visit the Grand Masters’ Palace.
Enjoy a ride on a trolley train up to the Acropolis of Rhodes, for views of the old and new towns of Rhodes. View the imposing walls of the old town, Mandraki Harbour, where legend says the Colossus of Rhodes stood.
Your walking tour of the old walled town of Rhodes takes you along stone-paved lanes past medieval structures, each recalling the Knights of St John and their Turkish conquerors. Learn about the town's past as you walk along the Knights' Road, one of the oldest and most magnificent in the town which leads to the Palace of the Grand Masters.
Built in the early 14th century, the Palace of the Grand Masters features mosaics from the island of Kos, as well as a marble staircase that leads to the upper floor, where you can take in the panoramic view of the city.
A stop will be made at the ancient ruins of Rhodes Town, where you will be able to view the site of the old town of Rhodes and the walls that still surround it, from the comfort of the train.
There will be time for shopping in the old town for souvenirs, jewellery and Greek art.
Note: The old town of Rhodes will be explored on foot for approximately one hour, along cobbled streets. The visit to the Acropolis is in Rhodes Town, not Lindos. The order of highlights may be reversed. Please note that the tour will end at Rhodes Old Town to offer the option for further exploration or shopping before the short walk to return to the ship. Please note that due to street traffic noise the public address system may be difficult to hear, the guide will conduct the explanations of the sites at the first available stop and not whilst the train is in motion.
