Rhodes (Rhodos) - The island of the Knights

Located in east of Aegean Sea, The Greek island of Rhodes is the home to the famous Colossus of Rhodes as well as to one of the world heritage sites too. An amazing fusion between romantic history and glorious modernity, a place where the infinity of the clear blue sea amazingly meets the mountains with cloud-topping peaks, this fascinating island in Greece exerts a strong attraction for thousands of visitors, from its secluded position in the middle of the Dodecanese islands complex.

The prehistoric Hellenic acropolis of Rhodes is located on a hill in the western part of the island. Formerly it consisted of an enormous zone full of asylum, great shrine, community buildings and dissident mausoleum. The acropolis of Rhodes was previously set on terraces mixed together with gardens. The leftovers of this building date back to the 2nd century BC, however, all of them have not been explored yet. The Stadium, though, has been fully exhumed and renovated. The good thing about acropolis of Rhodes is that you will get a chance to explore the history of Rhodes.

Rhodes boasts a particularly long summer climate, with its weather being directly affected by its warm, southerly position in the eastern Aegean Sea, west of Turkey. The climate of Rhodes is warm and pleasant all through the year, with the summer weather arriving as early as April and not beginning to cool down until November. Rhodes enjoys approx 300 days of sunshine a year (!!!!), while between April and October, the chances of uninterrupted sunshine are nearly one hundred per cent. During that period the temperature is in excess of 25 C. The summer heat is offset by a cooling, and sometimes strong, sea breeze.
