Visiting the Valley of Butterflies, Filerimos and the ancient city of Lalysos, the Seven Springs, the Marine Aquarium, the monestry of Tsampika and the medieval city are amoung the things perfect for visiting on your way through. With the warm weather, perfect beaches and amazing sights, Rhodes is a idylic cruizing stop.
