Rhodes Medieval & new town

Lunch at Haraki
Have we caught your attention into becoming a local yet? If you find the following interesting, we are certain our tour would time-travel you into the past.
The drive starts with the exposure of the Medieval town where Byzantine, Ottoman and Italian architecture is witnessed. Within the Walls of the town, the Palace of the Grand Master is spotted. We continue to the entrance of the Old Harbour (Mandraki), where according to the tradition, the Colossus of Rhodes (one of the seven ancient world wonders) once stood. Close to the entrance of the Old Port is the "Church of Annunciation of the Virgin Mary", where today is the town's cathedral church. The Church is styled as a 3 aisled gothic basilica with a wooden roof, amazing gothic wall paintings by Fotis Kontoglou and impressive chandeliers.
Driving towards the northernmost tip of Rhodes, we will see the Aquarium of Rhodes, which is the ideal place for those wishing to get acquainted with the marine wealth of the Aegean and the Eastern Mediterranean Sea.
As we drive up to the Acropolis of Rhodes City, you will have a picturesque panoramic view from Monte Smith hill. The location was named after Sir Sydney Smith, an English admiral stationed on the hill in 1802 during the war with Turks to monitor the movements of Napoleon’s fleet. The familiarisations of the temple of Apollo, the Greek Stadium and the Greek Amphitheatre are then followed in order to become a knowledgeable resident.
As you have grasped the highlights of the city, you will be transferred to Lindos. This 35-mile drive provides you with a glimpse of beautiful small villages surrounded with gnarled olive trees, a must phase into becoming a true local!
St. Paul ‘s Bay is followed, where the apostle is said to have landed in the year 51 AD to preach Christianity to the Rhodians. From this point you can also view the cave where the film “The Guns of Navarone” was filmed. Scenic! The exposure with the friendly inhabitants of Lindos would ensure you are equipped with the right traits in order to be called a "local". During our visit, you will be given a choice of how you wish to spend your time there. Will it be a shopping spree? Food tasting? A donkey ride to the acropolis? It is your call. Regardless of the option, we assure you that there would be multiple opportunities to capture the White Village, the golden sand and the Acropolis of Lindos.
Continuing our journey, we stop in a spectacular Sea-Front Greek Restaurant for lunch. We strongly believe this restaurant will surprise pleasantly your pallet.
