Rhodes Greece is the biggest island of the archipelago called Dodecanese and is the capital of the group of Greek Islands. It is world known for its colossus. It is located between Karpathos and Kos and it is, along Santorini and Mykonos, one of the most famous islands of Greece.
The capital lies outside and within the walls of a very well preserved Venetian castle, built by the Knights of Saint John. Its interesting sites and its many Byzantine churches make this Greek island one of the most popular islands of Greece.
On the main seafront of Marmaris you can book a day trip to Rhodes on a fast catamaran service that only takes about one hour.
This is useful if you need to renew your Turkish tourist visa or stock up on relatively cheap wine and spirits.
