“Rhodes: The Origins, Champions and Heroes”

It is said that when Zeus was sharing the land, after the victory of the Olympian Gods against the Giants, a wonderful island rose from the sea to be offered to the God Helios, the one who carries the sun on his chariot everyday from the East to the West.

This myth explains how the island of Rhodes became the property of the God Helios, which is why it enjoys an average of 300 sunny days a year. 

Mythology somehow always hides some truth. These tales narrating the past, the prehistory of Greeks have been passed on through countless generations becoming a living part of their identities, reminding them how things started, the superior power of nature, their origins, the accomplishments of their ancestors.

On the acropolis of Rhodes your licensed guide will present you the belief system and rituals of the ancient Rhodians, how they worshipped their Gods and honored their ancestors. Sacrifices, athletical and cultural competitions were a substantial part of the ancient Greek culture and of the highest importance in Rhodes; which evolved quickly into one of the richest city states of ancient Greece, proud of its champions winning repeated victories in the Olympic games.

From the top of the city we will follow the tracks of the ancient city’s plan designed by Hippodamus himself (the inventor of urbanism), until we reach the medieval city of Rhodes to enter from one of its most monumental gates.

After seeing the exceptional defense system designed by the best engineers of medieval times, we will stroll down the street of the Knights to end our tour in front of the Hospital of the knights.
