Full description
 This exclusive half-day tour is perfect for wine lovers and history buffs who want to immerse themselves in the medieval history of Rhodes and discover why modern Greek wines are becoming so popular. Begin by exploring the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Rhodes Town. Secured behind a deep moat within a double ring of lofty walls, the Old Town is like a medieval time capsule, transporting visitors back to the era of the Knights of St. John.  A passionate, knowledgeable guide will lead you on a tour through the atmospheric, winding streets, pointing out medieval monuments and describing how the battles and sieges faced by the Hospitaller Knights shaped the town. The walking tour concludes at the Palace of the Grand Masters, a 14th-century fortified castle that was restored in the 1930s. Today it’s a museum housing medieval furniture, elaborate mosaics, and archaeological exhibits from across the island. Once you’ve finished exploring the Palace, wander down the famous Street of the Knights, the best-preserved medieval street in Europe. The last stop of the tour is the Inn of Auvergne, built in 1507. In the beautiful back garden you will taste award-winning local wines while lunching on traditional Greek meze.
