Rhodes is one of the showpiece Greek islands, with an exquisitely preserved medieval city that was the legacy of the crusading Knights of St John, based here from 1309-1522. The largest of the Dodecanese Islands, it is blessed not only with historical riches but lovely beaches and a charming port town in Lindos.

In Lindos explore the old town, with the option to visit the Acropolis, before lunch and the afternoon at your own pace.
There is ample time at leisure to further explore, relax on the beach or absorb the atmosphere of the historic old towns at one of the inviting local cafes or tavernas.
