Our bike tour starts with a leisurely ride along wall of Rhodes’ marina where private yachts dock. That short ride gives you a panoramic view of Rhodes and a chance to see various buildings from afar and is the ideal opportunity to listen to a brief history of the city. We also visit the tower located at the end of the harbour wall where look-outs were stationed to watch the horizon and where many a battle was fought.

We then move on to the moat surrounding the walls of the medieval city. After that we head to one of the medieval city’s western gates and enter the narrow cobbled streets to observe the architecture of the houses and buildings there. We pass through the historic squares with their fountains, monuments and important buildings from the medieval city dating from different historical periods. 
Crossing the marketplace, we cycle towards the Ottoman baths and from there head on to the main mosque of Suleiman the Magnificent built in the 15th century by the Turkish occupiers.

From the vantage point of the mosque we have a great view of the Palace of the Grand Master. Approaching the palace you begin to realise just how grand it is. A visit to the palace is optional. 
Heading down the Street of the Knights, you can see the homes of knights of various nationalities on the left and right. We then exit the old town via de Amboise Gate and continue towards modern-day Rhodes. We head towards the ancient stadium built at the foot of the city’s ancient acropolis.

The bike tour takes us around the ancient monuments. We then cycle up to one of the highest points in the city offering great views of the Aegean Sea and the city and views towards he western and eastern sides of the island. That is followed by lunch at the chapel of Agios Nikolaos built into a cave. Although now a chapel, this site was also used in antiquity s a place of worship.
Then we head down towards the coastal road towards the aquarium built at the island’s most northerly tip. 
As our tour nears its end, we cycle past the imposing administrative buildings constructed by theItalian rulers at the start of the previous century. The cycling tour ends at the statues of the deer, symbol of the city of Rhodes, located at the entrance to the old harbour.
