Action and Adventure
There is so much to do in Tholos and on Rhodes, that tourists will need to plan their days well. Of course, there are the beaches that guests of the island can spend hour upon hour sunning themselves on. However, like all of Greece, there is so much more than just the beaches that make up its islands and coastline.
Visitors can wander around the classical designed old village of Tholos. Perched high on the hilltops, Tholos is surrounded by farm fields and olive groves.

Along this stretch of coast holidaymakers will find a whole host of beaches and resorts including Ixia and Ialysos. The area has an assortment of excellent restaurants and bars, allowing travellers to experience a very Greek night out.
The Acropolis of Lindos has been beautifully preserved. Tourists can walk the steep rock path above the town of Lindos to reach the Acropolis. There, visitors can see the ancient remains of the Temple to Athena Lindia.
Constructed by the Knights Hospitaller in the 14th century, today the Palace of the Grand Master looks remarkably similar to the day it was built. However, it is the outside that remains mostly intact as the inside was restored following an ammunition explosion in 1856 that destroyed parts of it. The palace holds artworks and visitors can see an exhibit on ancient Rhodes here.
The Archaeological Museum is home to some of the best treasures in Greece and a perfect educative excursion while on holiday. The museum has a plethora of well preserved items with the oldest being traced back 7,000 years. There is so much to see in the museum it will take visitors some time to see everything.
