Timings of ferry boats, or bad weather conditions might lead to a few hours or an overnight stay in Rhodes. For some, this might be seen as an inconvenience, delaying their arrival on Symi, or in catching their flight home.

However, Rhodes Town has much to offer. Historical buildings and architecture, The busy port area, shops and markets, restaurants and tavernas.

The modern town has some interesting shops, with a chance to buy modern Greek fashions, or add to your Greek music collection from one of the cd shops.
The old town is more atmospheric, especially in the evening/night time. Where there is a wide variety of tavernas and restaurants, to enjoy a meal, or a drink and people watching.

The liquor stores around The Plaka offer bargains in spirits, (cheaper and more variety than on Symi), to enjoy during your holiday, or to take home as gifts.

However, you can't always rely on having a few hours on Rhodes prior to catching the ferry.

Both my trips have resulted in a lengthy stay in the airport coach park, with a frantic dash to catch the evening ferry!
