Our feet have just about recovered from yesterdays exploration around Rhodes Old Town. We will be doing something a little less vigourous today especially as we need to catch the ferry to Nisyros later this evening.
Taking the route through the St Johns gate again, we pass the medieval church of St Marie du Bourg. If you’re lucky you’ll catch a photo opportunity before somebody drapes themselves under one of the arches for a selfie!
The rest of the day is spent discovering new areas but also retracing our steps through the medieval streets.
When we return to the 7 Palms, although we have already checked out, there is a shower available to us to freshen up before we depart for the port. There is a nice area for us to relax in by the reception area and also a little terrace outside. We have absolutely loved our stay at 7 Palms. The location in a quiet suburb just outside of the old town was perfect. It didn’t feel like a particularly touristy area which thankfully offered us peace and quiet. More than anything though, the hospitality provided by Domi and owner Mr Manolis was absolutely outstanding and I highly recommend this as a place to stay.
Although I managed to heave my suitcase along the pot holed road on my way here, I don’t want to inflict this on the rest of my gang so Domi arranges for a taxi to collect us and take us to the port. The ferry leaves for Niisyros at 7pm. It will be around 11pm when we arrive.
The Blue Star Patmos has arrived so for now Rhodes – farwell and we will see you again in 18 days!
