Casa Cook Rhodes
Upon entering the walls of the Old Town of Rhodes, you will step into the oldest inhabited medieval city in Europe. It’s not only a UNESCO world heritage site, but also a vibrant town with 6,000 residents.
The walking tour will take you through the eras of history. Its transition from a great Hellenistic city to the Greek Byzantine era; from the periods of medieval, Gothic crusaders to Ottoman, Italian and modern times. Each epoch has graced the town with its own architectural style, not least of which are the glorious buildings by the Knights of St. John Hospitallers.
Marvel at grand monuments and traditional houses, cobblestoned alleyways and lush garden courtyards. There’s a dizzying mix of monasteries, mosques, synagogues and Greek Orthodox churches. Woven throughout are traditional baths, palaces, forts and gates. Lively town squares with shops, cafes and restaurants show how history lives on through locals and visitors.
The guided tour is between 2 and 2½ hours, with plenty of time to stop in between. It ends at a charming restaurant for lunch or dinner.
