How to Spend 2 Days in Rhodes

How to Spend 2 Days in Rhodes

With two days to spend on the island of Rhodes, you’ll be able to stroll through the streets of the medieval Old Town, explore ancient archaeological sites, and enjoy the great outdoors (both on land and by sea). Here are some tips for how to plan the ultimate 48 hours on Rhodes.

Day 1: Ancient Wonders

Morning: Start your day with a tour of medieval Rhodes for an introduction to the history and heritage of this Greek island. One of the best ways to get around is by Segway, allowing you to zip around the old city to points of interest such as the Palace of the Grand Master, Ibrahim Pasha Mosque, the Hospice of St. Catherine, and the former headquarters of the Knights of St. John.

Afternoon: This afternoon, head further back in time with a visit to one of the most important archaeological sites of ancient Greece, the Acropolis of Lindos. Explore the ruins—some dating back more than 2,500 years—with a guide for insight into the role Rhodes played in ancient Greek civilization.

Night: Rhodes’ Old Town is at its most beautiful when illuminated at night. Return here this evening to experience this atmospheric time of day. Explore on your own, or join an evening tour, many of which include a short cruise around Mandraki Harbor, dinner at a local Greek restaurant, and free time for shopping.

Day 2: Outdoor Adventures

Morning: Rhodes makes an excellent base for outdoor adventure in the Aegean Sea. Choose your favorite activity or try something new; hike through the pine forests of Eastern Rhodes, kayak along the rocky coast, learn the basics of scuba diving in Kalithea Bay, or charter a yacht for a customized cruise.

Afternoon: Many outdoor activities in Rhodes take up the better part of the day, but if you have some free time this afternoon, you have options. Dig deeper into history at the Archaeological Museum of Rhodes, catch a showing of Throne of Helios: The History of Rhodes 9D experience, or head to Kalithea Beach to relax in the sun.

Night: Wrap up your time on Rhodes with a romantic sunset cruise through Aegean waters. Go for a late afternoon swim at Kalithea Springs, soak up the coastal scenery in the warm light of the setting sun, and enjoy a feast of Greek specialties on deck as you sail along the coast.
