Lindos on Rhodes

Rhodes is a major ferry destination at the hub of the Dodecanese, and the main port is right in the centre of Rhodes Town. You can easily walk into the Old Town from Rhodes harbour, and there are many hotels, shops, and restaurants within walking distance.

Ferries to Rhodes

There are daily ferries to Piraeus for Athens, several a day to the nearby island of Symi (a popular day trip from Rhodes), and less frequently to places including Kos, Karpathos, KalymnosSantorini, Patmos, Crete, Tilos, Halki and Thessaloniki.

Greek Ferry Information and Booking Tickets

There's a really comprehensive guide to Greek ferries, including suggested itineraries, guides to the different island groups, advice about cars on ferries, the differences between fast and convenient ferries, taking your dog on a ferry, printing your ticket and e-ticketing, and a much-needed guide to the port of Piraeus, on the Aferry website.

You can also book tickets online.

Flights to Rhodes

In summer there are regular cheap charter flights to Rhodes from many European destinations. Visitors from the USA and other countries outside Europe should consider flying to London or other European city and taking a connecting flight from there.

Within Greece, you can also fly to Rhodes direct from Athens International Airport, with several flights a day. There are also daily flights to Iraklion on Crete, and to Thessaloniki and Santorini, from various Greek airlines like Olympic, Aegean Air and Sky Express. Sky Express is based in Crete and also operates hops that link Rhodes, Santorini, and Mykonos.

Other islands with flight connections to Rhodes currently include Kos, Leros, Lesbos, Samos, Chios and Karpathos, and a few other islands. The Greek airline situation is constantly changing, though, so always check in advance and never make assumptions.

What to Do on Rhodes

Rhodes is the largest island in the Dodecanese and easily rewards a stay of one or two weeks. There's a lot of variety including the medieval Rhodes Old Town, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, glorious sandy beaches, archaeological remains (notably at the stunningly beautiful town of Lindos), monasteries, ruined castles, even the Valley of the Butterflies. There are top quality hotels, big resort hotels, gourmet restaurants, cheap tavernas, nightlife, quiet spots, windsurfing. It's a cliché, but there really is something for everyone on Rhodes.
