  1. Hi Chris

    I just came across your site and I love it, there is some really cool information here. 

    I love the idea of the map too. I’m planning to go to Rhodes this summer and this map of Rhodes is really helpful for planning everything out. 

    Which of those spots would you say is the number one place to go to?

    I’m definitely gonna come back to your site I love it. Thanks

      Hello Aaron and thanks for your visit.

      To be honest, I know when people are in a foreign place it can be easy for them to lose their way and go off track. 

      Sometimes this can be exciting and provide everlasting memories, but it can also be frustrating if they miss out on the places they set out to see in the first place.

      I thought the map would assist people in getting around the island and seeing the attractions.

      When it comes to selecting the best places, it is hard to say. It really does depend on the individual. 

      If it was me though, I would not leave without seeing The Medieval City Of Rhodes, Ancient Kamiros and Lindos. These are important places for the islands history. Check the links i have provided for more information. I hope they offer you some ideas.

      On saying that, a visit to the beach would not be missed out either.

      Thanks Aaron, it is great to hear from you. If you need anything prior to your visit, just let me know.

    This is great for traveling around Rhodes! 

    I need to visit this island and explore to explore and what is out there. Did you see anything interesting particularly interesting on the island? I can imagine how beautiful it is. 

    The geographical map shows perfectly where to go and offers a great layout. This place is something historic and needs to be visited!

    • Chris Towers Post author

      Hello Jonathan and thanks for passing by. The map of Rhodes that i have included here does offer a great way to navigate around the island.

      There is a lot to see and do, and things can be missed or overlooked if you are not sure where to go or how to get there.

      In answer to your question, the island of Rhodes is full of beautiful and interesting places to see. When it comes to interesting, it all depends on your point of view though of course. 

      Places like The Acropolis of Lindos, The Ancient City Of Kameiros, The Grand Masters Palace inside The Medieval City and its neighboring streets all spring to mind. The Medieval City alone you can take you days to explore and you will still not see everything.

      I think this is why the map of Rhodes is important here. It is better to try and plan your days and see where the places are. This can maximize the time people have so they can see what they want to see.

      Thanks Jonathan, I appreciate your interest!

    Hello Chris!

    Your Rhodes Interactive Map concept is fantastic!

    What a great way to get travellers zoning in on their specific “bucket-list” locations and possible “new-discoveries”!

    I could have spent an entire afternoon dreaming of the Mediterranean Sea on a hot August day but it was a rough summer for everyone this year!

    All the Best!

    • Chris Towers Post author

      Hey there and thanks so much for passing by and checking out my information here.

      Yes, the map of Rhodes I thought would be a good asset for people as sometimes navigating around a new place can be a little daunting.

      It is also good for zooming in and checking out some of the sites to see which you can read about in the “visit the sites” area.

      I am happy you found it also to be a useful tool and that the information here gave you the nice thought of relaxing next to the Mediterranean Sea 🙂 It is quite a beautiful place to visit. 

      Is it on your Bucket List too? 🙂

      Thanks again!

      Chris

    Your map is nice but can you give us some more information about places to look for on this map? 

    What are some of your favorite places to visit? Is there an area that has a festival at a certain time year that we should look for? 

     A map is great, but having the information on the same page can create something extremely useful to other clients.

    • Chris Towers Post author

      Hey Marcey, really appreciate your thoughts and letting me know what you think.

      The thing is, there is such a lot of information with regards to places for visiting and festivals etc. If I put it all on the same page I think it would be overwhelming and people would not take the time to read it all.

      If you look around the site, you will see I am covering all of what you are asking for within various sections and I have made the map available on all the pages. I think this makes it easier.

      I am still developing some information here and there is more coming, but if you see the Sites To See section and also the section on Public Holidays in Greece, all the information you are looking for is there 🙂

      I hope this helps you. If you have something more to add, I will happily accept more ideas!

      Thanks Marcey

      Chris

  5. Hi, this interactive map is a great idea for people travelling to Rhodes.

    We are planning a trip to Greece in the near future and your site has given us a lot of food for thought.

    Is there anywhere you would recommend to stay close to the sea but quiet? We work hard and to be honest we need a place for relaxation and minimum noise.

    Thanks

    • Chris Towers Post author

      Hello Alan. It is great to know you are planning a trip here to Greece. I hope Rhodes is also included as part of your plans ? 🙂

      If you look on the East Coast on the Rhodes Interactive Map.. and head south – you will see a small village called Kiotari. This is the perfect spot for you I think.

      It is quiet, there are some small quaint and quiet villas, beautiful secluded beaches and general peace and tranquility.

      I go down there sometimes too and gather my thoughts.

      I think you woould enjoy this location. It is also not too far from Lindos if you fancy a little bit of nightlife and a break in your quiet moments!

      Hope this helps you out my friend. If you need anymore you know where I am 🙂

      Thanks Alan

  6. Hi Chris,

    your website is a wonderful gate to this little paradise. You’re doing a great job!

    Navigating on this map is like taking a virtual trip to Rhodes, and there are so many interesting places to see. When you zoom in you can see lots more in the way of details and where places are. 

    How long do you think it will take to visit the whole island in the real life? 🙂

    • Chris Towers Post author

      Hello again Ioana. Thanks once more for taking a look around.

      I hope the map offers some people guidance on where places are and how to go to and from the different areas. Sometimes people can get a little disorientated when they are in a new place and because of this, they can end up missing out on some of the attractions. I do not want that to happen 🙂

      As for actually seeing all there is to see on the island, wow, what a question. I have lived on the island now for many years and I have still not seen everything.

      Every time I go out I see something new and stumble across something that I overlooked before.

      As a holidaymaker though it all depends on what you are into. If you like to relax, see the beaches, drink a beer and enjoy the food, for sure a week is a good amount of time.

      If you really want to get your teeth into the history, the culture and see all the sites then anything from two to three weeks would be perfect.

      Even then, you will still be left wanting more.

      Hope this helps you Ionana 🙂

      Thanks

      Chris

  7. I found this to be very helpful.

    I have always wanted to visit other areas including Rhodes Island but I have not had any experience in terms of figuring out how I would get there.

    This interactive map was easy to use and it has given me a general idea of what to expect when visiting this island. I will be sure to come back to this and check again if I got the chance to travel to The Island Of Rhodes.

    My Question is, do you have a specific area there that you recommend all visitors check out if they traveled there?

    • Chris Towers Post author

      Hello Arie and thank you for your question.

      To be honest, Rhodes has a lot to offer. Not only for the places to see, but for the history and the culture too. It is the atmosphere that makes Rhodes a special place.

      There are a lot of important places here on the island, and to name one over the other would not be right (in my opinion). For example, The Medieval City is very important, and indeed popular. On saying that it would be a crime to miss out on The Ancient City of Kameiros, or the beautiful beach of Prasonisi in the South.

      I would recommend trying to arrange a stay long enough to see as much as you can. If you are only here a day or two then I understand this can be difficult, but if you can manage a week – with a little planning you can see tons of things and have a great experience.

      There is a lot more coming on the site soon. I will be covering a lot more of the sites and areas of importance in the coming weeks.

      Hope this helps you Arie, and if you need anything just give me a shout!

      Thanks

      Chris

  8. Matt's Mom

    Great idea Chris! I love the interactive map and I am also curious about the language of the map. What is the official language of Rhodes? 

    I am not familiar at all with the writing. I do believe that this is a great addition, so that getting around the island will be a breeze. 

    Is English also spoken on the island, so that when I visit I will have no trouble communicating?

    • Chris Towers Post author

      Hey there Leahrae, I hope you are doing fine. Nice to see you here yet again 🙂

      The official language in Rhodes is Greek. Rhodes is the largest of the islands in the Dodecanese and is located to the South East Of Athens. 

      The island has of course been occupied in the past by The Romans, The Turkish, The Italians and The Knights Of Saint John. Since 1947 though, the land has been united with Greece. 

      Aside from their native Greek language, many Greek people study other languages too such as English, French and German. You have nothing to fear here, if you visit you will have no problem communicating and finding your way around using English. 

      On saying that, the Greek people love to see people trying Greek 🙂 You will be far more respected, and then they will happily help you out in your own language anyway!

      Hope this helps you out Leahrae.

      Thanks

      Chris

    Hi, my name is John and I like your interactive map. This is a nifty tool that will be of great assistance in helping plan my vacation retreat. 

    I was wanting to see the Valley of the Butterflies and Prophet Elias Monastery while I visit. 

    Do you think that this could be done in a couple of days or would it take longer to be able to really see these sites in full?

    Thank you,

    John

    • Chris Towers Post author

      Hey John, a great question and I will happily help you out here.

      Firstly, I am happy you found my interactive map of Rhodes helpful. I thought it would be a good tool for people to use should they need to navigate in a little more detail.

      Some of the maps which are sold here on the island are not the best when it comes to offering more details. They are not bad, but they are quite standard. Sometimes people need a little more in my opinion.

      Now, The Valley Of The Butterflies is an amazing place. I really love it here. There is a beautiful river with wooden walkways built all around so you can move around the area easily. The Butterflies are present and in their thousand during July and August. You can still see them either side of these months but they are more limited.

      The mountain of Prophet Elias is also a very beautiful place to visit. At the 800 meter high summit you will find a beautiful hotel and coffee bar called Elaphos and Elaphina and of course the monastery which is called Prophetes Elias.

      Opposite the hotel you will also find a villa which was supposed to be the retirement location from Benito Mussolini. It is said Mussolini himself never actually go to see the villa.

      So, with all of this in mind, it might give you an idea of how long it takes to look around 🙂

      For sure I would spend a day at each place. I would not try to jump from one to the other in one day. There is a lot too see, and to much to miss if you try to rush!

      I hope this helps you out John.

      Thanks

      Chris

  10. Wow that was a really cool map right there, but the coolest thing is discovering this place .I have never been anywhere in Europe yet, and mostly I have only traveled in Asia.

    I have not heard about Rhodes but yes, I have heard so much about Greece and the famous Santorini where we are going next November. 

    The trip will be limited but will find a way to get to Rhodes Island.

    Thanks for this site it taught me geography and history.

    • Chris Towers Post author

      Hello and thanks for your visit and for your comment.

      Well, if you have never traveled outside of Asia, and you are planning a trip to Greece in November then you are going to love it.

      Although the weather is more cool at this time of year, it is still pleasant and you will have a warm and enjoyable time. Santorini is a beautiful island and one that many people visit on an annual basis. 

      You will find getting to Rhodes from Santorini is not difficult at all. There is a boat that calls at both of the islands on a regular basis operated by Blue Star Ferries. It is quite reasonable priced, it is comfortable and you can go to and from quite safely.

      In November, there is still a lot going on here in Rhodes. Many places are open and you can soak in the atmosphere and see some of the sites. Not to be missed 🙂

      Thanks again for getting in touch, and let me know if you need anything during your stay!

      Chris

  11. Thanks Chris. 

    I’d love to visit Rhodes and see what made you decide to live there permanently. Tell me, what is it about this particular island that has captivated you? 

    I don’t often hear about Rhodes so I’m curious about it. Is that castle for real? Nothing like that in the US! 

    Enjoy your life in this fantastic looking place!

    • Chris Towers Post author

      Hi Jackie, thanks for getting in touch. It is nice to hear from you.

      To be honest, a lot of people that live on the island of Rhodes call it a drug. Once you visit you find it hard to get it out of your mind. I think this is the main reason a lot of people come back year after year.

      When you live here though, WOW it is hard to explain. I think it is so different from anywhere else I have ever been. The friendships, the support, the loyalty, the way of life and the bonds that you make with people make it impossible to consider moving away.

      I have one friend that lives here too. He is from the UK, and he had to go back there for a few days to take care of some paperwork for his pension. He came back and told me that he was pulling his hair out back in England. He could not wait to get back here to Rhodes and said he felt lost while he was away. (He was only gone 2 weeks).

      I suppose this can be considered extreme, but he vowed he would never leave this rock (Rhodes) again. That was 4 years ago, and he has not left since 🙂

      Rhodes definitely has character. Once you visit, it just keeps pulling you back. So why leave? 🙂 This is why I stayed.

      As for the Palace, yes this is absolutely real. It is about a ten minute drive from where I live. 

      If you look on the interactive map and zoom in, you will find it located to the northern tip of the island within The Medieval City.

      Thanks Jackie, very nice to meet you.

      Chris

  12. Thanks for the information about Rhodes – particularly the interactive map! 

    I went to Lindos about 35 years ago and it was beautiful. I would love to go back, and after reading this article I think I will put it on my ‘destinations to visit’ list! 

    I like to camp, so Rhodes would be a great place to hang out, I think! Thanks again for your work on this – very useful!

    • Chris Towers Post author

      Hello there Alison, great to know you have visited the island although it was many years ago.

      Of course you will still see some of the important structures in place as you probably remember them. The Acropolis of Lindos for example being one of them. There has been a lot of change on the island over the last 20 years or so though, and there will be a lot that is new to you if you visit.

      When you talk about camping, you might be surprised to learn that it is actually illegal here on the island. Well, there was a campsite actually, and it was located in the Faliraki area. If my memory serves me correctly, it was closed down and converted into an industrial area in 2002 / 2003.

      Wild camping is forbidden. It is not allowed at all. The most you may see is the fisherman that stay out overnight. Sometimes they camp down on the beach next to the water and do some fishing, but that is about all.

      So, this is just for you to know in advance.

      Happy you found my interactive map of Rhodes useful too 🙂 Let me know if you manage another visit.

      Thanks Alison.

      Chris

  13. I really like the look of Rhodes city center and its historic area. It is probably semi-bustling in the off season too am I right?. So, we are thinking of basing out of there and spending a few nights away also.

    Can you recommend a quaint town on your interactive map for a couple of romantic nights away from Rhodes?

    Or, maybe we should take a short ferry ride to another island for a couple of nights to see another area?

    What would be your ideal get-a-way in October.

    Thanks!

    • Chris Towers Post author

      Hey there James, great question.

      To be honest you are right – Rhodes Town never sleeps 🙂 There is always something going on and I would say it is 99% a busy place. Even during the night there are people moving around and the roads are always packed with cars. Maybe you are safe from it if you go out at 4 am, but that is about it 🙂

      With this in mind, sometimes it is nice to escape it. I love Rhodes town, I really love it, but I am also happy I do not live in the middle of it.

      There are lots of small villages around the island which are very quaint, well worth seeing and you can get some peace and quiet too.

      Places such as Dimilia, Platania and Psinthos are beautiful and yes Ssshhhh – they are quiet too 🙂

      As for neighboring islands, of course there are many. If you get yourself to the Acandia Ferry Port there are regular crossings to other islands such as Kos, Crete and Santorini. All very much worth a visit. There is also the small island of Symi which is very beautiful and is not far away at all.

      All good recipes for a nice time away from the hustle and bustle 🙂

      Thanks James

      Chris

  14. Hi Chris,

    I love your website, and to be honest I never really knew where Rhodes was. 

    I really like the history of the knights and castles and never knew that Rhodes had so much history. I really want to visit the castles there and see the Temple Of Aphrodite.

    I loved how detailed and simple it is to find what I needed when I was looking at the map, then I read about the car hire 

    I appreciate the tips, and I am pretty sure I will visit next year. I am going to bookmark this page, would it be OK to ask a few questions if I have them nearer the time when i visit?

    Many thanks

    • Chris Towers Post author

      Hey Freddy, great to have you here my friend.

      The Knights and the historic structures here are really something special and I assure you, you will love them all.

      Of course the Medieval City and the history of the knights that goes along with it attracts millions of visitors here every year. There are also other areas that people can overlook though. 

      Kritinia Castle and Monolithos Castle, which are both located on the West Coast of the island were also used by the Knights. For sure if you take your time to look around properly, you can uncover some real gems 🙂

      This is one of the reasons I wanted to put this map of Rhodes on here. It will help people navigate to places which they might otherwise miss.

      This history is here for you to soak up Freddy. Wherever you go, you will get a view of past events. 

      Of course I am always here. If you need anything at all just let me know. I will answer any questions you may have and if you need advice on places to stay and where to go – just give me a shout!

      Thanks for your interest my friend. Nice to meet you.

      Chris

  15. Alternative Retreats

    Aaah, I love your site! 

    I am going on my honeymoon to Greece soon and we were in the process of deciding which island is the best – its really hard to choose! 

    I would love your guidance on where the best places to stay are!? Are there any other islands close by that you recommend? 

    Also, can you recommend any unique activities to do? 

    Thanks so much!!

    • Chris Towers Post author

      Hello there, from your name here “Alternative Retreats”, I think maybe you have more of an idea where to go and what so see more than I do 🙂

      I agree with you though, when it comes to choosing a destination to visit in Greece it can be hard. Rhodes is the largest of the Greek Dodecanese Islands and is a beautiful place to see. If you scroll out on the interactive map of Rhodes which I have provided, you will see where it is in relation to the other islands and of course the mainland.

      Some of the other islands which are popular with tourism are namely Kos, Santorini and Crete. Of course a lot of people hit the mainland too and Athens is certainly worth a visit.

      All of these places can be accessed very easily from Rhodes too. There is a ferry service that runs from the city frequently, and this will take you to where you want to go.

      There are many things to see and experience here, and for a honeymoon it is a perfect setting. A lot of people come here to get married and take a small vacation. There are the hot springs in Kalithea which provide a beautiful relaxed setting. Some of the sandy beaches too are great for relaxing.

      There is also a lot to see when it comes to soaking up the history and the culture here in Rhodes, not to mention the beautiful restaurants 🙂

      Even if you can see Rhodes for a day or two as part of a tour, you will love it. The Medieval City alone is breathtaking and people come from all over the world (sometimes arriving by boat for a day) just to see this place. Amazing.

      Hopefully this gives you a small insight 🙂 If you need something more though, you know where I am 🙂

      Chris

  16. Hi Chris. I really like the idea of the interactive map on your site.

    Greece is on my travel plans for the future but I think the information you give on where to go and what to see is so detailed that Rhodes will be more interesting.

    I have been to some really hot countries like Japan and Singapore but I would prefer it not so warm, so will avoid the summer months

    Does the island really die off in the winter? I mean from the services point of view?

    I do prefer to travel around and find out more about the history and culture of a place and that often means avoiding peak tourist time.

    Thanks again for a great site.

    • Chris Towers Post author

      Hey there Happy. I am not sure if that is your name, but that is what I see, so I hope you are not offended 🙂

      Yeah I thought it would be a good idea to put a map of the island of Rhodes here for people to be able to jump into and navigate around. It is all fine having standard small maps that you can obtain in some of the travel guides, but I thought something interactive would offer something extra. So now people have both.

      There is a lot to see and do here, and this map will hopefully help people along their way.

      To answer your questions, the island of Rhodes is amazing in the winter. It is quiet, and the important places are still open for you to see, although you may find the hours of opening are a little less out of the summer season.

      On saying that, you can see everything the island has to offer during the winter without any problems. Just be aware that a lot of the seasonal places are closed. Tourist supermarkets maybe not be open for business and picking up yous souvenirs may prove a little more challenging.

      The history and culture is here though, and you can access it all without any problems – and now you have your interactive map to find all the places 🙂

      Thanks Happy, and let me know if you need something more!

      Chris
