On your next trip to the island of Rhodes’ capital city make sure you consider our Rhodes car hire services as your means of transportation around the island and its many attractions and sights. The town’s claim to fame is that it used to be the site of the massive Colossus of Rhodes, one of the seven wonders of the ancient world as well as the fact that it is Europe’s oldest inhabited medieval town.
The city and the entire island is server by the Rhodes Airport also known as Diagoras Airport which is located on the west coast of the island at about fourteen kilometers from Rhodes Town. The airport is connected to Rhodes Town via bus routes and taxis but your best choice would be to employ our Rhodes car rental services and have a car ready for you at the airport so that you can start driving almost as soon as you land.
The town is separated into a few distinct areas, each of them offering a particular type of attraction, for instance the New Town is just your average modern city but the Old Town is the place that you came to visit. The Old Town is still protected by its medieval wall, then there’s the commercial harbor, the Mandhraki Harbor, the beach and of course the Acropolis, which refers to the ruins of the ancient city of Rhodes.
The Rhodes Old Town numbers amongst the best preserved and rather large medieval towns in Europe. The weather and the relative political stability of the island throughout the centuries helped preserve it and it is now home to a plethora of monuments and museums.
The Rhodes Archaeological Museum is definitely a must-see while there as it operates a tour of the medieval city walls in which you will be allowed to walk along the top of the walls at your own pace so definitely something to consider.
Of course there are many more things to see and do while on the island of Rhodes and with the help of our Rhodes car hire services you can experience as many of them as possible.
