OVERVIEW

Start your day with a drive up the spectacular Mt. Filerimos, once home to the oldest ancient city-state called Ialysos. Be welcomed by many peacocks naturally residing in the area. You can enjoy a short walk along a cobbled path leading to an imposing cross offering a stunning panoramic view. You can also opt for a visit to the Byzantine Monastery and get the unique 7 Herbs Liquor made after the monks’ secret recipe before you return to the bus.

*Mt. Filerimos can be replaced with the Butterfly Valley.

Continue following a scenic West coast route that connects some of the most impressive sights – the ancient city of Kamiros and Kritinia’s castle. Kamiros is one of the best-preserved Classical Greek cities. Wander through its streets imagining what life in Rhodes must have been like in this ancient Doric settlement dating from the late bronze age until approx. 142 BC.

Ancient Kamiros

Then explore Kritinia’s Castle, founded by the Knights during the 14th century, and be amazed by the superb views overlooking the west coast. The fortress is often called “Castello” as it was the largest of the Knights’ fortresses along the island’s west coast. It dominates the western passage and the channel of Halki.

Kritinia

Finally, depending on the season or your preference, you can choose to relax at a seaside tavern. There is an opportunity to have a refreshing swim and delicious seafood. Or you can drive to the nearby mountain village to taste local produce and have village food.
