Food in Rhodes: Gastronomy & traditional diet
This article is wonderful. :) What an extraordinary array of delicious foods! Such a small place, such an enormous variety of traditional foods. :)
I visited Ancient Kamiros about 20 years ago and I’ve never been able to forget it. I had a strong feeling of what it must have been like to live there. It was palpable and for me, somehow emotional.
Rhodes Old Medieval Town
My husband and I have been going to Rhodes for twenty five years. I have travelled extensively to many places! For me it is one of my favorite places. No matter how often I have been there I always see and find something that I missed the last time. I love the labyrinth of the old town with its cobbled streets, unique shops and restaurants, but most of all it is the magic of its history, you can almost feel the agony and ecstasy of times of old, at times I feel if you listen hard enough you can hear the Knights and feel and smell the battles that told place. It almost as if the stone walls hold the memories of all the blood that was split in the times of war and chaos. At the same time the beauty of it architecture takes you breath away, It is a very magical place and one that I hold dear to my heart and soul. I hope to return again one day before go too join the Knights in there forever sleep!
Lived there 87 & 88, been back lots since. The bakery was in the village back then and the smell of baking bread on the way home from acropolis disco, The loveliest place ever, the villagers are what makes Lindos. They are amazing always helpful and friendly, it's like going home. Wonderful beaches people and atmosphere!
I was on Rhodes, In early 60s I enjoyed the Aquarium then, glad it's still going. Thanks!
My mother climbed all 309 steps in 1962 to pray for my birth. I was born in March of 1963. My first name at birth was Tsambika and Kari my middle. My mother is Greek from Chania, Crete. Unfortunately, we moved to the US and no one could say my name so they legally changed it to my middle name. I have visited Tsambika several times and walked the same path as my mother and will return again when travel restrictions are lifted. Blessings to all who visit and pray.
I was at the Tsambika monastery twice 1999 and 2018 both times were difficult times and Miracles happened. I thank God in its infinite mercies and thank the people working in the monastery for preserving the place for generations. If you believe in God visit and see wonders happened in your life.

Rhodes Old Medieval Town
I hope to return to Rhodes to sample the wonderful atmosphere of the whole island. Poor health is preventing me at the moment but I hope that will improve.
We were in Faliraki on a Family Vacation for 2 weeks beginning of September 2019. The weather was still very nice and warm, as was the ocean. There is a water park nearby, which was also very interesting and we had lot's of fun there with the kids. There is a small shopping complex on the main road, as there are also allot of restaurants and bars. It is also not far from Rhodes Town, just about 15 minutes by bus.
