The Islands of the Knights tour
This tour combines some of the grandest sites of the ancient and medieval world with some of the least visited islands of the southern Dodecanese. Betweenwhiles, there will be excellent swimming and time to relax and catch up. The circumnavigation of Rhodes allows you to appreciate the enormous size of an island that was an important player right through classical and medieval times, until the Knights of St John were finally expelled by Süleyman the Magnificent in 1522. The best way to appreciate the island and its superb sites is to make the approach from the sea. The acropolis at Lindos, seen from a boat in the natural harbour, is truly magical. Equally so, the town of Rhodes where our gulet ties up just outside the town walls, something that also means we can visit the town early in the day when it is relatively empty. John Osborne, classicist and teacher, will guide you through the turbulent history of Rhodes and her neighbours with humour and erudition.
