Head to Cair, located right outside Rhodes Town, a more-than-80-year-old winegrowers’ cooperative that uses grapes harvested by island farmers to produce several highly regarded varieties including retsina, Muscat, and rosé. You can tour the facilities and shop for obscure labels, such as the French-style sparkling Cair Brut and Cair Demi Sec.

Many consider this ancient cobblestoned artery, flanked by commanding stone buildings, to be one of Europe's best-preserved medieval walkways. The historic Street of the Knights of the Order of Saint John once linked Rhodes’s waterside port to the Acropolis high above.
Restored in the 1940’s on the site of a Byzantine acropolis, this 14th-century castle guards the highest point within the medieval city. Nearly two and a half millennia of Mediterranean history are on display—antique furnishings, mosaics from Kos, and dozens of sculptures—within the heavily fortified walls.
Just a short walk from the Harbor and Old Town, the Casino Rodos is a hotel and all-night gambling spot with hundreds of slot machines, dozens of gaming tables, two restaurants, and a bar. To enter, you must be at least 21 years old.
