Overview of Rhodes’ New Town
Admire the Italian era public buildings (the National Theatre, Post Office, Town Hall, etc), as well as the renovated historic Grande Albergo delle Rose (now the Casino). Stroll around Mandraki, the town’s small port with the trademark deer statue and visit Rhodes’ Aquarium (Hellenic Centre for Marine Research), one of the most important in Greece. At the outskirts of the New Town, relax at Rodini Park, an impressive small valley with lush vegetation, streams and paths (the region also features a number of ancient sights worth seeing). Enjoy panoramic views from the hill of Agios Stefanos (or Monte Smith), where you can walk through the town’s archaeological park and see the acropolis of ancient Rhodes, the stadium of Diagoras, theatre, temple of Apollo Pythios, etc.
