"To cruise Rhodes Greece is more than anything else, like stepping into your favorite history movie about knights..."




I would say that Mediterranean cruisers always get more than they bargained for when they cruise Rhodes Greece.

Most simply don't know what to expect before getting there.

Is it a small Greek island with donkeys being the main source of transportation? Is it a place where the only highlight is a visit to the beach? Is it a loud resort place? Is it just another place full of old ruins... and god knows we've seen enough of those. So what's there to do when you cruise Rhodes Greece?

Well, Rhodes Greece offers much more than seeing a pile of dead stones! To cruise Rhodes is more than anything else, like stepping into your favorite history movie about knights; their coats of arms still built into the walls and cannon balls scattered around the lawn like they were here just yesterday, protecting the town from intruders.

WHEN TO CRUISE RHODES


But also, Rhodes brings to life times when every famous poet, philosopher, sculptor or astronomer of antiquity came to study, teach or create on the ancient Rhodes island; evokes calls for prayer from the minarets, draws you into the shade of Byzantine churches... Rhodes Greece is like a different point on a timeline, all blended into one!
