I recently visited Greece for the first time. I travelled to Rhodes island not know what exactly to expect. Greece at present being one of the poorest countries in the Euro I expected a very run down way of life. How I was wrong. Rhodes city is a metropolitan town full of up and coming vibrant bars and clubs. The contrast to this is the old town. Rhodes old town is simply beautiful. An old medieval walled fortress town, filled with a rich tapestry of castles and museums with an underlying sense of Italian style and cafe culture; it is very relaxing and has a cool laid back vibe.
