Know More about this tourMeet your private guide outside Rhodes Port and travel around Rhodes Old Town (Rhodes city) a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Impossibly photogenic, the medieval neighborhood is best known for its intact city walls, so have your camera ready to capture photos as you pass alongside them. Travel to the summit of Mount Smith, a hill just to the west of Rhodes city, and then stop for a stroll around the Acropolis of Rhodes.
Dating back to the Hellenistic period, the acropolis is one of the few Greek acropoleis without fortifications. Instead, the site is more of a collection of monuments, and your guide will introduce you to its best ones while walking around.
