Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Definitely a great place to visit, there were so many shops and lots of places to eat and get drinks. Steps can be quite steep, however the community is very friendly, with so many options for shopping. Also has quick access to the beautiful Lindos beach, and the views are incredible.

    Impressive historical site. Very well maintained. We really enjoyed the wandering round this site. The small signs showing what that area was used for really helped with our imagination.

    Beautiful street to walk down or up . You would need guide to explain what you are looking at . We did this as part of tour and glad we did .The stone street is awesome how they placed each stone.

    Here is the sea and the ships, a mix of ferries, cruise ships and some yachts. You will see stone walls, towers and little old windmills. Take a photo of the inevitable cruise ships and then wander into the old town.

    Really interesting and beautiful place.. definitely worthwhile going to if you’re nearby. Could do with some more information but was still a great experience. There are loads of peacocks wandering around which was random and unexpected haha but really made the experience - they were beautiful!

    We walked up from Rhodes town on a very hot day. It’s not particularly well signposted and we used Google maps to find it. We enjoyed looking at the stadium and imagining what it would have been like back in the day but there didn’t appear to be any information boards to tell of its history and restoration which was disappointing and although there was a kiosk it wasn’t open which was unfortunate as I think they would have made quite a lot of money as visitors, of which there were quite a few would have appreciated a cold drink.

    The Fortifications of Old Rhodes are lovely and unlike so many similar fortifications around the world, they haven't yet been ruined by tourism.
    My recommendation would be to find your way down into the moat area, away from the madding crowds . . . especially when the big cruise ships are docked.

    The fort and the pier with its windmills is very historic even if not in very good shape. The fort was commenced in 1460 and a lighthouse added in the 17th century.

    These windmills are off on the edge of the harbor, easy to spot. They are charming especially on a sunny day. There are a couple of them. Not sure if they still serve a function other than to catch your eye.

    This area known as The New Market or Nea Agora is opposite the Old Town and directly behind the Bus Station. Whilst it has a lovely Bandstand style construction at its centre and is beautifully shaded, it seems there are only Eateries and Tourist Outlets to see.

    Just a short walk from the Palace of the Grand Master of the Knights of Rhodes is the lovely Hafiz Ahmed Agha Library.
    Founded in 1793 by Hafiz Ahmed Agha, Chief Equerry of the Sultan, with just 1995 manuscripts covering the entire scope of Islamic science. Today the Library has over 1256 manuscripts, some of the most valuable are an original Koran from 1522, which can be viewed electronically, the history of the 1522 siege of Rhodes, and a collection of old maps and engravings of the old medieval town. The grounds a beautifully kept, with intricate pebble-patterned courtyards surrounded by many green plants.

    TIP: Check out the Suleyman Mosque, located directly opposite the main entrance to the library, and the Roloi Clock Tower just around the corner.

    Greek Army Lieutenant Alexandros Diakos (1907–1940) was the first Greek officer to die in WWII. He died on November 1, 1940.

    This statue commemorating him is located near the striking Post Office building in the Mandraki Port area.
