The Colossus of Rhodes was one of the Seven Wonders of the World, and today there are only images depicted on pottery and in murals to remind us of this great work of mankind. The largest of the Dodecanese Islands in the Mediterranean between the Aegean Sea and the Middle East coast, the island of Rhodes is still a tourist’s dream. With accommodation ranging from self-catering to modern hotels, this beautiful island is filled with plenty to do and see.
The island is wrapped in Greek mythology and rarely a day goes by when the sun isn’t shining. The majority of the island’s hills and low mountains are covered with natural forest, which is perfect for exploring and hiking. Roses grow freely from the fertile soil of Rhodes and the beaches are some of the most beautiful in the world. Littered with resorts, it is no wonder that Rhodes is so popular for both weekend and extended getaways. Full of life, the island is a mecca of sports, cultural, and nightlife events. And that is not including the trips visitors may wish to make to the other islands in the archipelago.
