Plan your journey around RhodesThe island's unique medieval-looking capital, Rhodes Town, is just a 20-minute car ride from Rhodes International Airport. This is one of Europe's surviving walled towns and was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The fortified ramparts were built by the Knights Hospitaller of St. John and the Ottomans during the mid-15th century.
While modern attributes can be found in the Old Town, with plenty of shops and restaurants to entice tourists, the area has maintained its medieval look and feel. The cobbled streets and courtyards, Moorish architecture and centuries-old palm trees all add to the area's old-world charm.
There are several museums in the Old town which detail the island's rich and complicated history. The Palace of the Grand Masters houses permanent exhibitions with displays of ancient and medieval Rhodes.
