One of the Mediteranean's most popular resorts and a perennial holiday
favourite for any
By far the largest island of the Dodecanese, also known as the "Island of the Sun God Helios",
Rhodes combines a variety of characteristics that make it unique as a travel destination.
Rhodes reveals itself to the eyes of the visitor as a magnificent explosion of colors and activities that combine a mix of interesting sights and relaxation, unique nature, learning and entertainment.
Tourism on Rhodes has a long tradition. Ever since the Italians replaced the Turks as the
dominant power in the south-eastern Aegean in 1912, and after the island was returned to Greece
in 1947, Rhodes has been gradually turned into an attractive tourist destination by continuous
investments in tourism infrastructure, making the island one of the most highly organized travel
destinations in Greece.
Its beautiful beaches, its state-of-the-art buildings and hotels, its picturesque districts, its medieval buildings, its archaeological sites and its rich history contribute to its reputation as one of the most interesting and attractive urban centers of the Mediterranean region.
