My Excursion To Rhodes City Center In Greece

In this final post about my week in Rhodes in Greece I will share lots of photos from my excursion to Rhodes City Centre. Now to get to Rhodes City Center from the little Greek village of Kiotari, where we lived on the island, we had to take the local bus. And because there were a lot of people on the bus and many stops along the way, it took about two hours to get there (one way). But the bus had good air conditioning and I got to sit down all the way, so luckily it was quite a good bus ride.

Now the main events of our excursion to Rhodes City Center was the lovely walk along the beach and the absolutely breathtaking ocean there, eating the traditional Greek food Gyros and our visit to the beautiful Old Town of Rhodes. Of course I had my camera ready in my hand to take photos with all day long! And I definitely used that camera!! Yikes. So after having gone through quite a massive editing process, below are some of the photos I took on My Excursion To Rhodes City Center In Greece.

Gas Price Rhodes Greece
Gas prices in Rhodes. I always think it is interesting to see how much gas costs in different countries, these prices are in Euros.

Many felt a bit adventurous in the ocean, while others had second thoughts there...

You could actually go on excursions to Turkey with some boats. Or, why not jump on the Love Boat?

After all this walking though, we got a bit hungry. So we went to a restaurant in the yellow building.

Grreek Food Gyros
And had the classic Greek dish Gyros, which is sort of like a kebab. I had chicken Gyros in pita with another Greek classic - tzatziki and fries. It was really yummy, though I was not prepared to get two pitas on one plate. Lol! So I certainly got very full. :p

Greek Food Gyros
Gyros. A very common sight in Rhodes, you could buy Gyros pretty much everywhere.

There were also lots of charming, narrow streets there.

Lots of people enjoyed a visit in Old Town.

And this place - Swedish Ice Bakery.

Yum! The funny thing is that I actually bought an ice cream here before I noticed that the shop was called "Swedish Ice Bakery".

Old Town Rhodes Greece
And the reason I bought an ice cream here was this - Macaroon Ice Cream. Wow! I had never seen that before, and it was super delicious! I especially loved the macaroons in there, not sure what was Swedish about it though? Hehe.

Old Town Square Rhodes Greece
A cute square.

The center piece of the square was this friendly looking fountain.

Grrek Flag
Because unfortunately we had to leave the Old Town of Rhodes eventually, and Greece too. So Bye Bye.

I truly did have a great week in Rhodes, beautiful beaches, perfect weather and many charming places to see. It is definitely a place I can see myself returning to in the future. But for now I have been back in, the somewhat more and more fall like, Sweden for over a week. Though it took a few days for me to realize that flip flops were no longer suitable to wear here at home, a bit too cold for my toes, I have now adapted to the weather here. Which has actually been quite nice lately. And of course I reunited with my beloved dog Lisen the same day I returned home, who, yet again, had survived my absence. Hehe.

So it is back to life in Sweden with Lisen and me in my next post - ahhh! It is actually going to be quite nice to return to the present again. Lol. ;-)
