Medieval City of Rhodes

The Basics

Enter through the northern Eleftherias (Liberty) Gate and you’ll find yourself in Simis Square, characterized by its striking medieval architecture and home to the Hellenistic ruins of the Temple of Aphrodite. Nearby, the lively cafes and souvenirs stores of Ippokratous Square and Sokratous street are the main tourist hubs, providing a central point from which to explore Rhodes Old Town’s many attractions. Just about every sightseeing tour of Rhodes includes a visit to the medieval walled city, though it’s possible to get a more in-depth experience on a walking or scooter tour of the medieval city itself. Evening tours show off the cobbled alleyways at their most atmospheric.

Scooter Tour of Rhodes
This was a fun way to see the highlights of Rhodes. The Old Town is fascinating. Theodore is an excellent guide. He made sure we felt safe on the scooters before heading out and constantly checked with us during the tour. I highly recommend it.

Theodor as our very knowledgeable and friendly tour guide, he made sure we all knew how to use the trikkes and was happy to stop at any point to let us view parts of the town and take photos. We really enjoyed the less touristy part and the Theatre, as well as getting to see how fast the trikkes could go at the end. I would definitely recommend this tour to any visiting the Medieval town of Rhodes as I feel we got to see some of the best parts of the town.

This tour is an amazing and fun way to see the bits of the town you wouldn't see on your own. And it's much easier and cooler than walking! The guide was really knowledgeable and funny with excellent English. The scooters were really easy to use so if three 50-year-olds can do it, anyone can! I'd definitely recommend this tour.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • The cobbled streets of the medieval city can be slick and uneven, so be sure to wear sturdy walking shoes.
  • Bring your camera, as this is one of the most photogenic areas in Greece.
  • Rhodes Old Town is not laid out on a grid and can be quite maze-like; bring a map, visit with a guide, or embrace getting lost and wandering.

Attractions in the Medieval City

The undisputed star of the medieval city is the dramatic hilltop Palace of the Grand Masters of the Knights of Rhodes, a fourteenth-century castle built by the Knights of St John. Leading down from the palace, the stone-paved Avenue of the Knights (Ippoton) is the city’s most famous medieval street. Also of interest is the Archaeological Museum, housed within a Gothic building that once houses a hospital. Head to the top of the clocktower for some of the best views over the historic district.
