Additional Information

When the Knights of St. John and other Crusaders were evicted from Jerusalem, they set up headquarters on the island of Rhodes. Today medieval Rhodes is a World Heritage Site, a carfree community with cobblestones, drawbridges and high stone walls. It is exceedingly charming. An early morning walk around the dry moat will leave you wondering what era you’re in.

The Crusaders established satellite castles on nearby Kos island and Bodrum, Turkey. The castles are smaller than Rhodes but just as alluring. They both lie right at their harbors’ entry and make for an impressive welcome by sea.

Kos is where Hippocrates was born and you will visit the site where he practiced medicine. Also on the itinerary is nearby tiny Nyseros island where you can walk down into its dormant volcano.

Rhodes and Kos have superb beaches, a variety of resort hotels and a service industry quite accustomed to the English speaking foreign guest. The Dodecannese region is a smart choice for a relaxing, leisure vacation.
