Best last minute: A week in Rhodes

Lindos, Rhodes

Rhodes is one of my favourite Greek Islands. There is so much to do, from the stunning Colossus of Rhodes to the charming hilltop town of Lindos, and a boat trip to Simi is also a must do!
 

 

 
I found a great deal to the charming Amfitriti Hotel. This is an ideal choice for someone looking for a peaceful location, but also want the option of exploring the nearby town of Lindos, pictured above. There is a pool and lounge onsite and the hotel is rated as Excellent on TripAdvisor.

Price for a seven-night stay from Dublin on the 17th of June including flights, transfers and checked baggage is only €432 per person.
