When you arrive in Rhodes on a cruise, you'll dock at the eastern part of the Old Town, and the pier used by the cruise ships is right under the old medieval city walls.

It's a lively spot with lots of boats and a great view. 

It's big enough to fit yachts, fishing boats, cruise ships, and other kinds of boats.

The entire area of the harbor is about eighty acres or thirty-two hectares. Although it's not the biggest harbor in the world, it's undoubtedly busy and provides tourists with a lovely environment.

So, get ready to step off your ship and start your adventure in Rhodes!

Get off the cruise ship and walk down the pier for about 5 minutes. Towards the end of the pier, there will be a Duty-free shop for your last-minute shopping before getting back on the ship.

In the same building, you will find the Customs office. It's good to know this, as this is where you could stamp your shopping tax back check in case this happens to be your last EU port or simply if your ship visits a non-EU port the next day!

Very close to the exit there is a Rhodes taxi stand with an army of taxi drivers who surround you the moment you walk out, hoping to sign you up for a half-day tour around the island or a trip to the beach.

However, as most of our readers do, taking one of the tested Viator tours is a much better value for money in the place where there is so much history to learn about.
