The old town area of Rhodes is a walled medieval fortress.. The streets are rough cobblestone, so we are constantly looking down as we walk. There are several nice outdoor cafes, and for those who like to shop - 120 gold shops. We were told this was the best place to buy gold jewelry. A nice place to spend more time.
