The nucleus of the city is represented from Rhodes old town today still lived from over 2.400 years and note for the medieval fortification present and happened in 1309 for work of the order of the Riders of S.Giovanni. To their the construction of the Building of the Grans Teachers and the famous street of the riders it is owed flanked from different buildings: Italian, German, French and of Provenza, all today recognizable for the coats of arms that countersign them. In 1522 the Turks besieged Rhodes and they defeated the Riders.
In 1912 Rodi passed under the Italian government and after the war Mussolini decided to restore the old city of Rhodes.
A week is enough to turn the island, to reach the beaches to visit the castles and the rests of ancient temples; all it takes is having so much curiosity, resistance and to rent a car on the place: the cost is moderate however.

 
 

The western coast is very windy and is ideal for the one who loves the windsurf and the kitesurf, while that oriental is more proper for the one who loves to spend a few times to catch the sun without suffering constant gusts of wind.
Departing therefore from the oriental coast you will meet different beaches, the most enchanting are surely that of Ladiko (said also of Anthony Queen; because here in 1960 the movie was made with him as protagonist) that of Tsampika (a long beach of sand) from the crystalline and transparent sea, that of Lindos, note for its hidden bays and still a little beaten, situated to the feet of the country in front of the church where it is said that St. Paul is disembarked for evangelizing.

Remember the strip of earth to cross you afoot and to climb on top of the hill, from this stings you can come down toward two bays isolated by the crystalline sea.
