Essentials in Rhodes
Agios Stefanos: For stunning views, there's no better place than Agios Stefanos, the mountain that towers over the city. Up on the mountain there are also several interesting archaeological sites to visit. An ancient Acropolis still stands, as well as a Temple for Apollo and a stadium.
Palace of the Prince Grand Master: This gigantic palace is often the symbol for Rhodes. Located in the heart of Medieval Rhodes, it was built by the knights of St. John who ruled the island from the 1300s to the 1500s. When the Ottoman's came to town, the palace was used as a prison.
