Our fourth stop on our mini cruise of the Greek Isles was the island of Rhodes. We split our time here between the beautiful village of Lindos and medieval town of Rhodes. Rhodes Old Town is one of the best preserved and most extensive medieval towns in Europe, which earned it a UNESCO World Heritage Site designation. It was a place from a storybook with its defensive, Gothic architecture and looked nothing like the whitewashed towns we had become accustomed to during our time in Greece.

We spent our time in Rhodes exploring the medieval streets, noting the walls and moats, eating gyros, and taking advantage of the free wifi at the restaurant before returning to our ship.
