The Isle of Rhodes

Rhodes is famous for the huge bronze Colossus {Kolossos means “giant statue} that once stood in the harbor, known as one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World; is home to a medieval fortification in Old Town and has a geographical location, which is the gateway to the Aegean.

The beauty of this island is not just as a beach resort, but seeing the ancient built upon the new that makes it shores so awe-inspiring. Listed are few of my favorites sites when exploring.

One of the best assets of this island is the seafood, restaurants specializing in traditional Greek dishes with influences from nearby Turkey, and do not forget the ocean view of the Aegean when enjoying a meal.

Stay stylish,
