The International Conference on e-Learning & Innovative Pedagogies is pleased to offer a pre-conference walking tour.
Join other conference delegates on this private four hour walking tour of Old Town of Rhodes.
This is a walking tour of the medieval town of Rhodes, a unique world heritage monument protected by UNESCO. Your tour guide will meet you at the conference hotel (Rodos Park Suites & Spa) where you will disembark and your tour will start right away. Walking to the Old town you'll pass through one of the gateways and will continue parallel to the big fortified wall, with your guide stopping you in some points of interest for further explanations as well as for panoramic views. On the way you will walk through the area of the Agora and the Collachium, where the Knights of St. John of Jerusalem lived and worked, building a stronghold of Christendom in the Eastern Mediterranean. The building of the hospital of the knights of St. John is one of the most impressive and old buildings remaining in the Old town, and houses today the archaeological museum of Rhodes, which is worth for a short visit. Among other things you will see ancient Greek statues, including the Aphrodite of Rhodes, made of parian marble, urns and pots, funerary plaques etc.
Remaining remarkably intact, the Old Town is home to the churches, marble coats of arms of the Knights, cannonballs and the inns of the Knights. Entering the famous Knight Street you will start ascending to the level where the very impressive restored Palace of the Grand Masters lies and you will enter it for your guided tour and detailed explanation of the different historic periods of the island and the palace. There among other things you will see very impressive mosaic floors, several rooms that served the everyday needs of the palace, as well as one of the most famous and well done copies remaining of the complex of the statues of Laotoon, a famous ancient statue which is today kept in the Vatican museum.
At the end of the tour you will be free to use the remaining time you have on the island, walking around, taking pictures and further exploring its magnificent areas on your own.
