Medieval City of Rhodes
Fancy a saunter through history without needing a time machine? Look no further than the Medieval City of Rhodes. Nestled on the northeastern tip of the Greek island of Rhodes, this ancient wonder feels like you’ve stumbled into a Game of Thrones set, minus the dragons and with way better weather.
Constructed way back in the Byzantine era, the city had its heyday when the Knights Hospitaller took over the joint in the 14th century. Since then, it’s been standing tall, literally, defying time and looking absolutely fabulous. A UNESCO World Heritage site, the place is a testament to how folks in the past knew a thing or two about building Insta-worthy locales.
So, what are the top things to do when you aren’t gawking at the sheer history of it all? Firstly, swan around the Palace of the Grand Master. It’s so grand even the peacocks might get a touch of envy. Next, fancy a strut? The Street of the Knights is waiting for your grand entrance. And, if artefacts tickle your fancy more than medieval catwalks, the Archaeological Museum of Rhodes offers a deep dive into ancient bling and things.
