Awaiting Your Return From Shore

Rhodes  Located only seven miles from the Turkish coast, Rhodes is one of Greeceís favored vacation centers.
  In ancient times, the entrance to its harbor featured a celebrated landmark, the Colossus of Rhodes. The 105-foot statue rose from a 35-foot stone base and was considered one of the Seven Wonders of the ancient world. Rhodes was an important cultural center with a well-known School of Rhetoric attended by such greats as Cicero and Caesar. From a school for sculptors came the famous Laocoon group, which is now in the Vatican Museum.
  Rhodes' most famous attractions originated with the Knights of St. John, who occupied parts of the island from 1310 to 1522. As their legacy they left a medieval town, dominated by the Palace of the Grand Masters and the Knights' Hospital.
  Rhodes has inspired many artists; itís not uncommon to come across a painter at work in one of the shady squares. The Old Town also offers plenty of shopping opportunities and a lively nightlife.
  Not far from the city stands Mount Filerimos, where a church has been built on the site of an ancient temple. A popular excursion is to the charming village of Lindos. Its premier attraction, the ancient acropolis, stands at the top of sheer cliffs. Walls of a 13th-century CrUSAder castle enclose the site. Excavations at the beginning of this century brought to light a plaque inscribed by a priest of Athena in 99 B.C. listing the dignitaries who visited the Temple of the Lindian Athena Hercules, Helen of Troy, Menelaus, Alexander the Great, and the King of Persia. Today, the winding path up to the acropolis is lined by stalls where locals sell lace tablecloths and a wide range of souvenirs.
