Exploring Rhodes (Rodos)October 20, 2017 in Greece
Our ship is docked downtown in Rhodes. We walk off the boat and in about 10 minutes we are strolling the old streets of the walled city. We have lots of opportunity to take photos and although another larger cruise ship is here, we have room to move freely. The city is older than the times of the Crusades, but re fortified during the Crusades. I quickly make a purchase for our collection of fridge magnets and I am finished shopping for the day. Dianne does not agree with my position on this matter and continues to shop anyway.
Rhodes is a nice place with old world charm. The narrow streets are cobbled or small stones set in cement. Walls are stone with lots of arches above. The Greek people are friendly as merchants tend to be and the restaurant staff are mostly indifferent.
Outside the walled city is a very pleasant waterfront area with shops, some elegant boats and plenty of green space. There is no shortage of cats here, seems to be one for everybody.
We walked back to our ship and departed for Limassol Cypress around 5 pm.Read more
