Medieval Rhodes Town: Rhodes' old town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and its upkeep is of national and international concern. Between the Palace of the Grand Master and the Archaeological Museum, the Street of the Knights, was the main street of administrative and military buildings and functions in the Knights era. The city of Rhodes is dominated, by the medieval castle built in the 14th century by the Knights of St John.

Valley of the Butterflies: A short drive inland will take you to Petaloudes (near Kalamonas village), a scenic gorge which, from June to September is home to the rare and eye catching Kalimorfa Butterfly. Attracted by the resin in the Storax trees, these delicate creatures flicker white, brown, black and red in flight.

Trianda: Meaning thirty, refers to the thirty stone houses built here by the Knights of St John in the middles ages. On the top of Filerimos Hill, a 15th Century monastery along with the ruined temples of Athena and Zeus Poliea.

Lindos: With its brilliant white houses and winding streets. Lindos was one of the three ancient states of Rhodes. It is now one of the prettiest and most photographed villages in Greece.
