"RODOS - Island Of Aphrodite & Helios" Rodos (City) by RoyJava

Rodos (City) Travel Guide: 464 reviews and 1,235 photos


The island of Rhodes (Rodes in Greek, the Dutch Rhodos) is excellently situated, so ships crossing the Aegean Sea went ashore at this meeting point of 3 continents. Crete became famous for its cosmopolitan character ...

Doing a job at an island of a cosmopolitan character sounds great. Working with just 2 models for a fashion catalogue, swimming-suits, and staying in a wonderful hotel sounds even greater. At the Greek island of Rodos it became reality ... so we didn't complain at all.

Magnifique Locations

Rhodos or Rodes, as it is called locally, is one of the Dodecanese Islands. That is only a short distance from the South-westerly Asia Minor coast.

We made a wonderful catalogue on Rhodos, with great backgrounds and beautiful colours, includes Rhodos mountain Atavyros which is running all over the island (about 542 sq. miles), with valleys full of orchards, vineyards and farms. We travelled all around and, it is a shame we did not had the time to see things around. Definetedly I want to go back for enjoying the fine arts and archaic relics ...


We know Rhodos by its one of the & World Wonders, the famous Colossus of Rhodos. The Colossus of Rhodes used to be an enormously large statue of superhunk Apollo/Helios and it is said ships could enter Rhodes harbour by sailing between its legs. Unfortunately nothing remains of it today.

The Colossus must have attracted a lot of beautiful women. I kept that in mind ... and started my job. The world-famous beauty of Aphrodite and the nature of Venus showed me what is >>>
