The route up there is fantastic and it is easily accessible by car. The imposing castle, built in a distinctive strategic position, is surrounded by trees and the location is ideal to enjoy a wonderful sunset and take beautiful pictures. Beyond the outer wall, there is no special interest in it,…

“It’s located in the North of the island, between the villages of Paradisi and Theologos. Between June and September, you can observe hundreds of butterflies literally covering all the trees, as the valley’s climate and environment is perfect for their reproduction. The valley is one of Europe’s best sanctuaries for the Callimorpha Quadripunctaria butterflies. The valley hosts a rare specie of plane tree, and the butterflies are really fond of its sap! That’s why you will find so many of them there. This natural site is quite large: you can walk along the marked trails in the woods and near the river to observe the butterflies.”

历史景点
“ Overlooking the city from the west and situated on the city’s highest point is the Acropolis of Rhodes, which unlike other ancient acropoleis was not fortified. The monuments date from the Hellenistic and late Hellenistic periods (3rd to 2nd centuries BC) and include sanctuaries, public buildings, temples and underground places of worship. The layout of the ancient acropolis first came to light with excavations carried out by the Italian School of Archaeology at Athens during the Italian occupation of the island (1912-1943). Further discoveries have since been made on archaeological digs under the auspices of the Greek Archaeological Service, which have provided important information on the site’s history and topography. Today these excavations continue over an area of 3 acres with the aim of uncovering the whole site of the acropolis of the splendid ancient city of Rhodes. Preserved within the beautifully landscaped and verdant archaeological park is the Hellenistic stadium from the 3rd century BC. Here athletic competitions were staged as part of the Haleion Games, an important celebration held by the ancient Rhodians in honour of the god Helios. Right next to the stadium is the small restored marble theatre, where in antiquity and today musical performances are given. In a dominant position at the summit of the hill is the Temple of Pythian Apollo, the city’s guardian. Reconstruction of the temple was begun by the Italians and then continued by the Greek Archaeological Service after the end of World War II to repair the damage caused by bombs and the weight of artillery emplaced there. Further restoration work was started in 1996. In the centre of the extensive Rhodian necropolis are the tombs of Saint John (oi tafoi tou Agiou Ioannou). The most important of these are the large corner funerary complex with tombs featuring vaulted masonry tombs, the cluster of yet more tombs of vaulted stonework crowned by a monument with triglyphs and metopes and the tomb carved into the rock that includes a monumental gateway. Of greatest interest is the underground quarry where burial chambers were dug into the sides of the tunnels.”

“More than 5 kilometers wide, Faliraki is the most popular and the most highly organized beach on Rhodes. Faliraki is like one big funfair, with a vast, multiethnic crowd tirelessly in pursuit of pleasure, day and night – in the morning on the famous beach with its striped umbrellas, at night in the narrow streets with their garish neon lights and loud noise. Here you can find anything you can possibly ask for - water sports, cafeterias, night clubs, restaurants, bungee-jumping, places for shopping and more. At the impressive Faliraki Water Park, which is currently the biggest in the whole of Europe, you can enjoy water slides, a lazy river, black holes, rafting slides, the giant slide (a”
