It is worth touring the whole island to discover the picturesque villages, the beautiful landscapes, the enchanting beaches and the impressive sights. And when it gets dark, the bars of Rhodes are waiting for you for a relaxing drink or fun until the morning! Rhodes is famous for its good food and nightlife. The island offers many options for evening entertainment, from a bar for a relaxing drink to large clubs for dancing until morning. Most are located in the city of Rhodes, in the Old Town, in Faliraki and in Lindos.
Lindos is a traditional settlement on the island of Rhodes. It has a rich history, as it was one of the three ancient cities of the island and the one with the richest naval tradition. It is the birthplace of Cleobulus, one of the seven sages of antiquity; of Harry, the sculptor of the famous Colossus; of Panaitos, the philosopher who introduced Stoic philosophy to Rome. This coastal settlement is located from the southern Aegean and is about 55 km from the city of Rhodes, located at Cape Krana on the east coast of the island. The picturesque narrow alleys, the beautiful beaches, the excellent view of the sea, but mainly the citadel of Lindos, which dominates over the settlement, have made Lindos a popular tourist destination. The citadel, in particular, built on a natural fortification site, has been used since the beginning of the history of Lindos and is intertwined, not exclusively with the history of Lindos, but with the history of the whole island. This small space was utilized and left in it by the ancient Greeks, Romans, Byzantines and the Knights of St. John.
