Here you can see the unique Old Town of Rhodes. There are stone built buttresses, castles, narrow passageways open onto full of trees squares. Medieval mansions stand next to Byzantine chapels, Turkish baths and tower palaces.
When the night falls, this historical place is combined with the modern life: a moped judders along the cobbles and speeds around a bend, fashionable wine bars open their doors. The live and traditional music is mixed with the smells of the fresh fishes and exotic herbs are emitted from a tavern’s kitchen.

- Leros, the relaxing island

Sitting on the edge of the pier is the perfect way to be hugged by the warm sunshine while at the same time the cool breeze carries the smells of the fresh baking bread, almonds and coffee. The island is a unique place that gives people a certain serenity. The traditional architecture of the island has been well preserved and this fact gives people a feeling that they are staying in a place that hasn’t been changed by the time.
Traditional bakeries make delicious sweets. The Pandeli Castle fortress of the 10th century is a high viewpoint and looks like a sandcastle at the top of town, keeping the sunset on its stone walls and promising 360-degree views to those who can bring themselves to leave their patio chair and climb to the top. Beyond the castle, some beautiful old-fashioned windmills bring to you the cool sea breeze. There are hundreds of walking paths leading to magnificent and beautiful places. But you can just walk down a short path and watch a beautiful sunset.
