Ôhe picturesque island of Rhodes, is known as the island of the Sun. The capital, City of Rhodes, is like a valuable coin with two faces. One face, "heads", is the old town, a fairy-tale place surrounded by medieval walls and traversed by the Street of the Knights of St.John. On either side of the road is the old town with the 'Inns', the Hospital of the Knights and the palace of the Grand Master. The other face, "tails", is the modern city with an intense nightlife, broad streets, beautiful buildings, large hotels, and hundrends of shop where anything can be found. The entire island is crammed with sights worth seeing, from the archaelogical sights to the fabulous beaches, from the valley with the butterflies to the ruins of ancient Rhodes, from the Acropolis of Lindos to the archaelogical sites at Kameiros (Kamiros) and Ialysos (Ialissos). And naturally, the strong sunlight and the beautiful sight sea are as present in Rhodes as they are throughout the Dodecanese, as they are throughout Greece.
