Inside Rhodes Airport
Civil aviation in Rhodes began after WWII was concluded; in 1977, the International Airport of Rhodes, also called Diagoras Airport, was inaugurated. Since then, the facilities have undergone several renovations and extensions to keep up with rising travel demand. In 2005, a modern passenger terminal was opened at the airport. The terminal building, although servicing over 2 million passengers per year, is relatively small; inside you will find a few bars, restaurants, and cafes, as well as a duty-free shop. WiFi is currently not available.
Take advantage of your car hire in Rhodes Airport
Rhodes is a magnificent island with much to offer; it is best explored with a rental car, as this gives you complete freedom to plan your journey on your own terms. You will find a large variety of breath-taking beaches along the coast, particularly around Faliraki; you will have the chance to dive, swim, snorkel, and sunbathe, as well as a multitude of options for enjoying exciting water sports. Mount Attavyros, which leads to the island’s highest point, is also possible to explore, but is a challenging climb.
Further inland, you will encounter the Old City, which provides a rare chance to stroll through 24 centuries of history. Near the Knights’ Quarter you can find the Museum of Modern Greek Art, the New Art Gallery, and the Centre of Modern Art. The Museum of Decorative Arts houses a number of artefacts from around the Dodecanese, and is the perfect way to catch a glimpse of the island rich cultural heritage. From there you can take a stroll up the Avenue of Knights to the 14th century Palace of the Grand Masters; here is where the knights had their quarters, and the walk there is steeped in mystery.
