Rhodes
Rhodes – the “island of the sun” – has something for everyone: wander through the narrow streets and alleyways in the medieval old town, which is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site, or travel along the eastern coast to Lindos** – a little gem dwarfed by the second largest acropolis in Greece.
