Excursions

There are two day outings included in the package, These outings include your coach travel to and from the locations and I will prepare and send participants information packs to help you plan how to spend your free time during these excursions.

Outing 1 – This is an opportunity to explore the medieval walled city of Rhodes with its history of crusader knights, its shops, cafés, and lively atmosphere. You might also visit the New town directly adjacent to the old town where Rhodes only LYS is situated. Fimi is a wonderful Aladdin’s cave of yarn and haberdashery. ( An address etc. will be provided for this.) Last but not least, a wander to the harbour where the yachts of the rich and famous are berthed and once upon a time the Colossus stood guard at the harbour entrance. You make your own arrangements for lunch while you wander and Beardychiel will be waiting for you with his own shopping bags at the bus. Again maps will be provided for the location of the meeting point.

There are many sites you might wish to visit if you have a keen archaeological interest, The Templar Keep and Castle, The Museum is quite spectacular and could use the entire time you have free.

The tourist shopping experience within the old town is exactly what one expects of a tourist centre. The newer part of town has some wonderful cafe and eating locations which you will enjoy. There are also some nice fashion shops and a couple of art studios which you might explore.

Outing2 – Arrangements for this outing are still being confirmed, but it is hoped that we will get to visit the lovely town of Lindos. As I work on this excursion I will add further details of sites and places of interest you might like to visit while you explore the town.

If for any reason these are not possible I will inform you as soon as possible of alternative arrangements.
