Island Tour With Filerimos And Ancient Kamiros – Full Day
This Full day excursion is an excellent opportunity to visit the Islands’ natural surroundings, villages and two ancient sites in one day. The tour will begin by visiting Filerimos Monastery* and one of the three ancient cities of Rhodes, Ialyssos. Here you may walk along the path of the “GOLGOTHA”, lined intermittingly by shrines depicting scenes of the Holy Passion. This tree-lined path ends at the massive Cross where you have a bird’s eye-view of the surrounding country-side, a great vantage-point for some photos. If you wish to enter the monastery you may do so for a small fee or you may just sit under the tree at the Kiosk for a quiet moment.
After Filerimos, the tour will stop at the ancient site of KAMIROS*, the second of the three ancient cities of Rhodes. Situated on the slopes of a hill overlooking the sea on west coast, this extraordinary site is a must for history lovers.
Very well preserved and impressive, this ancient city is one of the of the islands’ greatest example of ancient culture, commerce and architecture.
Continuing inland to the Village of Embona, you will be treated to some wine-tasting where they will have a chance try locally produced wine, Souma [firewater] and honey before stopping for lunch in one of the village tavernas, known for its fine quality and traditional Rhodian cuisine.
After lunch you will continue up to mount Profitis Ilias where you will stop for some coffee and refreshments. This area is home to the two Alpen-style inns Elafos and Elafina that are set amongst tall pine trees – a perfect cool respite from the heat of summer before the return journey back to your hotel.
