The Starter Travel Guide to Rhodes, Greece. Rhodes is not only one of the most popular tourist destinations in Greece. It also beats many other European countries as a must-see island that screams of culture and historically rich influences. Lying off the coast of Turkey, it saw a huge rise in popularity when gulet cruises of the Turkish Riviera and Greek Islands dramatically reduced their prices to accommodate the budget traveller. The island measures 50 x 24 miles and has a population of roughly 115,000. The currency used is Euros but what else do first time visitors to the island need to know?
Travel Guide to Rhodes:
Must see sites and things to do:
-The medieval town of Rhodes is worth exploring. It has been declared a UNESCO site. Inside the old city walls, are small cobbled streets woven into a maze. Within the old town, sits an archaeological museum that was rated a top attraction by Trip Advisor.
-Small villages and beach resorts that are worth exploring include Faliraki, Lindos, Haraki, and Pefkos. In Lindos, definitely explore the small bay called Saint Pauls that is renowned for its stunning beauty.
-The Valley of Butterflies is just outside the village of Theologos and is particularly stunning during the breeding season of August
-Lalysos is an ancient city that shows signs of habitation from the 3rd century BC
-The church of the Panagia holds some impressive fresco paintings from the 18th century. Remember that flash photography on the frescoes is forbidden.
-The Seven Springs is a throwback to the beauty of nature and a small restaurant sitting by the water’s edge makes the ideal place for a relaxing lunch.Families with kids should spend a day splashing around in the waterpark of Falaraki.
The best months to visit are from May to October when the temperature is ideal for swimming and sunbathing. Trekkers and hikers may want to stick to the months of April and November when the mid-day heat is not so hot.
How to get there
Rhodes has an international airport located 15 kilometres from the old town and from May to October, many flights operate. Alternatively, there are domestic routes from main cities in Greece like Athens. The ferry port is popular because of frequent links with Athens and Turkey.
Taxis are available and they have to use meters by law. There is also a regular bus service but anyone who wants flexibility and his or her own schedule for exploring during the day, should rent a car. Our online search engine sources all local suppliers to find the latest prices and deals that they are offering. You can begin your search here.

Getting around on Rhodes with Udrive
We regularly go to Rhodes and have always just used tour company transfers. This summer we decided to self drive, as we wouldn't be staying in town and we feel more like locals now. Our car was waiting at the airport. It was clean and smelled fresh, and the pickup was easy. Carolyn Altan at Udrive had answered our questions accurately, and the online system had been easy to use.
I wouldn't recommend driving anywhere near the old city - the roads are narrow, the crowds in the main summer months are huge and there is next to no parking. Park somewhere away from the city and take a taxi the rest of the way or walk - the distances aren't long. Where a car really comes into its own on Rhodes is exploring the island and it's little villages and towns, and some of the tiny beaches and coves away from the resorts and hotels. We met kind local people going about their business, which is not easy to do in such a heavily touristed place.
We were happy with the car, the service from Udrive and the excellent price (beat all other quotes by quite a bit.) Please be aware that it is almost impossible to rent a car with automatic transmission in the Greek islands!
