Walking in Rhodes

Walking in Rhodes

Even in Roman Times there was active tourism on these age-old islands, pampered by the sun and brimming with culture. Refined Roman families sent their sons to the rhetoric school of Poseidonios on the "Rose Island". Today Rhodes, with over a million visitors, is the most touristic island in the aegean apart from Crete.

After visiting the picturesque medieval old town, a world culture heritage site, the connoisseur of nature and landscape quickly moves on to the middle of the island.

Tourism hasn't established itself everywhere yet. You can wander throughpristine woods and mountains and discover chapels with important frescoes here and there. Yet there is no need to give up beaches.

Due to its great supplier of water, the island is green and fruitful.A relief map of the island shows a mountainous spine parallel to the coast in the western part. It is dominated by the 1215 meter high Ataviros, the highest mountain in the dodecanese. To the east and south of it, wooded hillsides spread out. Far to the south the landscpae becomes flat and less spectacular. Here scrub dominates the vegetation.

The best time for walking in Rhodes is from March through the end of june, and from october till end of November, when the countryside is green.

The Walks have been taken out from the book "Rhodes ,Karpathos, kos & Souther Dodecanese" from the book series "walking the Greek Islands"(Graf Editions).
