The locals speak pretty fluent English, German and Italian. All hotels, shops and restaurants employ English speaking staff, while their prices of goods and services are very similar to EU continental grocery and merchandise prices like the shops and restaurants at home. The city has an airport with very good and frequent aeroplane connections and charter flights from European and UK's major cities.  

The town of many influences

Rhodes old city center

Rhodes has a very rich history reaching from ancient Greece to disruptions in the 20th century. There is a partially preserved Acropolis from more than 2000 years ago, followed by the medieval old city centre, Ottoman cemetery and a vast oriental architectural influence. WWII there was a rapid exchange of German and Italian armies and finally, allied forces (mainly British) who liberated the area. 

Rhodes medival fortress

Interestingly, each conqueror had not destroyed the predecessors' remainings but they had always built their buildings on top of the side. Thus there's an Islamic mosque from the Ottoman times and a synagogue existing in harmony inside the medieval fortress from the Christian knights' crusade.
