Explore the medieval town and the Mandraki harbor area in a fun and relaxed way, by Segway
Feel the sea breeze as you glide by the landmarks
Discover hidden alleys, amazing views and great photo opportunities
Meet your local guide at your chosen time and start with an orientation session to get familiar with your two-wheeled, electric, self-balancing Segway. Once you feel comfortable, you’ll follow your guide through the narrow alleys of the medieval town, one of the few places that survived unscathed through the middle ages, and declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1988.
The tour first passes by the Ibrahim Pasha mosque, the oldest mosque in Rhodes, and then crosses Juderia, the Jewish quarter, to end up at the Catholic church of Our Lady of the Burgo. This is the biggest Latin basilica on the island and an architectural gem that fuses different styles and influences.
The next stop is the hospice of St. Catherine, before you pass by St. John's Gate and St. Athanassios Gate to reach the Suleiman mosque. Continue to the Amboise Gate, the most impressive of the medieval fortifications, before heading on to the Kastello, the heart of the old town's defences.
Glide down Knight's Street to end at the last stop in the medieval town: the Great Hospital, which today houses the archaeological museum. Then head to the Mandraki harbor region to see sights including Porta Marina, the Tower of St. Nicholas, the New Market and the Orthodox church of the Annunciation of Virgin Mary. Finally, glide back to Ippokratous Square, the heart of the Castellania district, where your tour will come to an end.
