One of my favorite places in the whole wide world. A combination of Ancient, Medieval, Venetian, Turkish and contemporary, beaches and nightlife, 300 sunny days a year!

The last is a map of Old Rhodes Town. It is completely surrounded by an intact medieval moat and walls, with 7 gates into the city. The entire village within the walls is designated a UNESCO world heritage site, yet is a living, breathing community.

And at one time a colossal figure straddled the harbor entrance.

Any foundations left? Any conjectural restorations? I bet the souvenir shops are full of them.

None of the foundations remain. There has been interest expressed in rebuilding the Colossus, most recently by the Mayor of Faliraki (another town).

Not pricey at all. Lots of accommodations at all prices. I had a big room with a balcony in a great place for less than 40 Euros a night!
