Rhodes: Greek Jewel

(GREEK NEWS AGENDA)    Rhodes is the biggest of the Dodecanese islands. It boasts a beautiful natural environment – much of its surface (40%) is covered by forests, such as the Valley of Butterflies – a veritable feast for the eyes in spring. Rhodes offers a variety of long, beautiful beaches, some less frequented than others, affording more privacy. The island is also rich with significant monuments. In the medieval old town, one can see the high-walled Castle of the Knights of Saint John and the palace of Grand Magister. One may also visit the municipal art gallery, which exhibits a remarkable collection of 20th century works. Furthermore, the Acropolis of Lindos is a must-see, a very imposing, awe-inspiring archaeological site that dates back to the Neolithic Age.  Agrotravel: Rhodes the grand lady of the Dodecanese; Municipality of Rhodes: www.rhodes.gr
