Guided Walking Holiday - A Knights’ Island Tread in the footsteps of ancient civilisations; all around you are the historic traces of those who came before. One of the larger of the Dodecanese islands, Rhodes has been important from the earliest times due to its strategic position and has been allied to various empires throughout history.Experience this journey with Ramblers Walking Holidays. Heritage from the Ottomans, Italians, Knights of St John and Persians is as rich as you will find anywhere in Greece. There are miles of jagged coastline, interspersed with sandy beaches and quiet coves. Trails hug the coast, with views of the sea, and gently meander through the interior, passing olive groves and ancient archaeological sites. The UNESCO World Heritage city of Rhodes Town is a maze of alleyways, magnificent archways, monuments, shady squares and museums and a perfect place to immerse yourself for a few hours. On the other side of the island is Lindos with its imposing€ropolis and sheltered harbour of St Paul, where the apostle is said to have safely landed during a storm. In between you will find traditional villages, peaceful valleys, and pine woods, which all make for wonderful leisurely walks with great scenery and ample time to appreciate the islands beauty. Travel with us at Christmas and see how the island marks Christmas time with church services and wonderful processions. The weather is ideal, with generally mild and bright days.
