Rhodes Town is the capital of Rhodes Island and is situated at the most northern point of the island. One of the finest cities in Greece, it holds that intriguing mix of ancient and modern. The entrance to the harbour at Rhodes Town is where the Colossus of Rhodes, wonder of the ancient world was said to have stood astride the entrance, welcoming ships of old. The new town and old town sit side by side and offer a variety of attractions. The ancient part is a World Heritage listed site and the largest inhabited medieval town in Europe. It is scattered with ancient and historic ruins, temples to Aphrodite, goddess of love, the Street of Knights with its Palace of the Grand Master and other gothic buildings.


The modern part of the city has that cosmopolitan feel, a range of bars, clubs and restaurants, casinos and is buzzing with life in the summer months.


Close to Rhodes Town is the ultra-modern, high-tech Rhodes Marina. Situated in splendid surroundings, it is an excellent base for exploring Rhodes by boat, or stopping off for a rest on a charter holiday.


The Rhodes International Airport is only 20km away from Rhodes Town. There are flights to and from the rest of Greece and many European cities.


Rhodes is the main port of the Dodecanese and domestic and international ferry lines leave and arrive here. Piraeus is the main Greek port connected to Rhodes Town by conventional and high-speed ferries. Other Dodecanese islands are also connected by ferry from here.


International ferries run between Marmaris, Bodrum and Turgutreis in Turkey and Rhodes Town.


Sailing from Rhodes Town in the summer, the prevailing winds is the "Meltemi" blowing from a north-west direction at Force 4 - 6. Booking a one way charter is a good way to see the Dodecanese islands south of Rhodes, making use of the prevailing winds. In this area you can enjoy open passages and more challenging sailing as well as coastal sailing with plenty of safe anchor points.
