Rhodes: Touring - Driving holiday

(Ro-dos in Greek)

The island of Rhodes is searingly hot for much of the year so while travelling short distances by car is recommended, driving holidays in Rhodes are uncommon. While most of the island's road network is accessible and well-built, some of its smaller roads are more like dirt tracks particularly as you head towards the coast However, it must be said that some of the most beautiful sites on the island can be seen on driving holidays in Rhodes with mountain villages such as Embonas, Monolithos, Agios Isidoros, Mesanagros, and Psinthos all hidden away and almost impossible to access without a car. Some of these boast old castles, churches and beautiful buildings and you can also stop here to taste local dishes in small traditional Greek restaurants.
