Rhodes island is the largest and most popular of all 12 Dodecanese islands in the South and very close to the Turkish border. It has long been a favourite party venue for young English tourists, especially the town of Faliraki, but in the last decades, it has become a calm and family-friendly tourist destination. Due to the rich history of the old town, there are many sightseeing places that you can drive to. There are ancient remainings of Old Greek civilization especially in the City of Rhodes: like the Acropolis, the fortress of the Knights, the Suleymaniye Mosque and the Kahal Shalom Synagogue all within a walking distance or just minutes of drive away.
