I'm planning to visit Rhodes this for a week September.
Are there any special recommendations concerning cultural sights, nature, beaches, food & night life you guys can make (or places to rather avoid, for that matter)?
Also what's a reasonable price for renting a car on the Greece Islands for a week these days?
P.S.: would it be easy to obtain weed somehow or should I stick with just a couple of beers?
Rhodos is fucked. Better go to Holland.
Been there several times, so nah. Also weed would only be a bonus for lovely mediterrainian summer nights, I'm not an addict pothead.
Rhodos is crap Nowadays. Go to Spain.
I had four hours of layover when I flew to Cairo with Aegean Airlines via Rhodes+Athens instead of just Athens. It was basically under 10€ more for one more flight Rhodes-Athens, kinda low height over the Aegean Islands for an hour, pretty good one and spending some time in the city of Rhodes - also this way I only had to wait 3 hours in Athens at the shit airport for my connection instead of 8. I visited grandmaster palace, insulted some Greek cunt who got pretty angry, visited the museum, was offered traditional Greek borscht and fucked off again. I felt like two hours in the city were more than enough.
Well, I'm not gonna stay in Rhodes all the time, just visit for one or two days to see the tourist stuff and maybe find a neat bar for a pint.
Also planned some nice days at a corner of the beach without too many people around, seeing Lindos and its Acropolis, drink a few beers or a bottle of wine and enjoy the night close to the sea, enjoy some food and maybe hike to the top of Attavyros and see the ruins of the temple.
Faliraki = party area
Lindos is nice, but not so great beaches iirc
