What you can expect
Feel like a modern knight as you visit the important landmarks in the walled old city in Rhodes, where the Knights of Rhodes lived and prospered. As you explore in a group of 5 people, feel the mysterious air wafting through the streets and cruise down narrow alleys with your professional guide.
Meet your group, get a Segway safety briefing, and follow your guide through the UNESCO-listed medieval old town, one of the few places that survived the Middle Ages unscathed. Venture to Ibrahim Pasha Mosque, the oldest mosque in Rhodes still open today, and cross Juderia, the Jewish quarters, to the Lady of the Burgo, the biggest Latin basilica of the island and an architectural gem.
Stop at the hospice of St. Catherine before cruising by the Gate of St. John (red door) and the Gate of St. Athanasios to see the Mosque of Suleiman, one of the important Muslim monuments in the West. Then visit Gate d’Amboise, an impressive gate of the fortifications, a landmark of the medieval town.
Venture to the Palace of the Grand Master, or Kastello, the heart of the town's defenses, and learn how it was the residence of the grand master of the Knights of Rhodes and an administrative center. Gliding down the Knight’s Street which connected the political with the religious center, end up at your last stop, the former hospital that now houses the archaeological museum.
