With its sleepy villages, deserted pine-clad mountain trails and well-preserved classical ruins, western Rhodes is the perfect place to soak up the island's history and culture – far away from the buzz of the main resorts. You'll visit the ancient city of Kamiros and the villages of Embona, Siana and Gennadi on this full day tour.
Firstly, you'll travel back through the centuries at ancient Kamiros. The well-preserved streets and remains of the adjacent Agora and Acropolis will give you a real sense of how the residents went about their daily lives in the fifth century BC – all brought to life with fascinating anecdotes by your guide.
Next up is Embona – the highest village in Rhodes – where you'll have free time for lunch. After a wine tasting, we'll continue to Siana, a pretty mountain-side settlement, then coastal Gennadi for a coffee and an insight into local life.
