Start planning your cruise and book your excursions in Rhodes

Rhodes, a Greek Dodecanese island and MSC Mediterranean Cruises destination, is celebrated for its beautiful beaches, archaeological ruins, and magnificent museums. Its historical Old Town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is the largest medieval city in the European continent!

 
MSC Cruises excursions offer plenty of exciting things to see including:
 
• Lindos and the Temple of Athena
• The Ruins of Kamiros
• The Grand Master’s Palace
 
Book an MSC Cruises excursion to the small jewel of Lindos, a delightful village on the island of Rhodes. Distinguished by its whitewashed houses perched on a hillside, this historical destination has survived through millennia. Lindos boasts exciting remains from the Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman empires, such as the acropolis which is situated high above the town. Visit the majestic temple of Athena Lindia which offers breathtaking views over the ocean. Finally, enjoy an ancient pottery skills demonstration by local artisans before having some leisure time to wander the town and indulge in a spot of shopping.
 
The Ruins of Kamiros, an ancient Rhodes site, makes for an exciting MSC Cruises excursion. The acropolis, the temples, the pillars, and houses, all overlook the dreamy Aegean. Enjoy a guided tour of the archaeological site and learn more about its remarkable history. Back in Rhodes, walk the Street of Knights, a medieval masterpiece. 
 
Discover Rhodes at a deeper level on an MSC Cruises excursion. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is abundant with medieval streets and feats of extraordinary architecture. Visit the Palace of the Grand Master, a stately Gothic castle constructed in the 14th-century. Marvel at its Byzantine mosaics, awe-inspiring turrets, and fairy tale arcades. The castle offers incredible views over the town and further afield to the harbour. Finish the trip with some leisure time to dine, shop and explore.

    Under the protective wing of the gods
    Under the protective wing of the gods

    It would take a lifetime of island-hopping to fully appreciate the 227 inhabited Greek islands scattered across the Mediterranean Sea.
    With sapphire water lapping at rocky coastlines sprinkled with secret coves and sandy beaches, they are the stuff of dreamy travel posters, the very definition of the eulogized Greek summer of sun, sea and sand.



    For anyone with a cultural bone in their body a cruise to the Greek islands cannot fail to inspire. Every culture has left its mark, and almost every town or village has a link to the past, whether it’s a delicately crumbling temple to Aphrodite, a forbidding Venetian fort or a dusty Byzantine monastery decorated with exquisite frescoes. 


    But the call to cultural duty will never be too overwhelming on a Greek islands holiday. The hedonistic pleasures of languor and warmth – swimming in balmy seas at dusk, talking and drinking under the stars – are just as appealing.
    Sprawling, globalized Athens is an obligatory, almost unavoidable introduction to Greece: aside from the show-stopping Acropolis it offers a truly metropolitan range of cultural diversions, from museums to concerts; well-stocked shops; gourmet restaurants and stimulating clubs.
