Rhodes is a popular Greek island which has a lot to offer those who opt to holiday there. The island is the biggest of the Dodecanese Islands and resides in the Aegean Sea. Rhodes is generally believed to be the sunniest island destination in the whole of Europe and as a result, it is lucky enough to have a subtropical climate which makes it a top choice for sun worshippers from all over the world.
If holiday in Rhodes with its 3000 hours of sunshine each year sounds like the perfect choice for you then you really should think about staying in Rhodes town. Rhodes town is close to the airport and is a great base from which to explore the island at leisure.
Rhodes town is split up into two separate areas, one of which is ultra-modern and the other is the medieval old town, which offers much to explore for lovers of history and architecture. If you like all of your modern conveniences then you should opt for the new half of Rhodes town as it is set up with tourists in mind, however, if you prefer atmosphere and culture, you will simply be delighted by the ancient cobbled street of the old town.
