Rhodes has a long history of pottery going back many centuries at least to the time of the ancient cities. Replicas of designs produced in those times are still been manufactured today together with new modern designs in a younger generation. Vivid colors, especially blue, feature strongly as do certain motifs that are uniquely Rodian, the pomegranate flower and the stylized deer.
The island has many ceramic factories selling directly to the public hand-painted pottery, typically vases, plates, and ashtrays. We can also arrange a small demonstration of the process of creating beautiful ceramics – a technique that is used from ancient times till now.
On Rhodes, there are plenty of jewelry shops. Jewelry always seems to be a hot item for tourists visiting Greece. Rhodes has great gold and silver jewelry and the standard of workmanship is extremely high. The goldsmiths of Rhodes are well-known with their creations of silver, gold and precious stones. Silver lace designs with Byzantine influences and gold work is very popular here. Many items have distinctive patterns with deer and crusader insignia, and you’ll also see pieces with a funky modern twist. Greece has at least 3000 years of manufacturing unique and skillful handicraft gold jewelry.
If you look around it’s nearly impossible not to find a piece you’d like to own.
The Rhodes market is extremely rich when it comes to clothes, top leather goods, and furs. In numerous shops, you can order the items of your choice, made of your favorite leather or fur, in modern designs. Do check out the fur and leather shops also for ready-made clothes The dozens of fancy shops and boutiques ensure that all your wishes and dreams will be satisfied.
You should also consider a relaxing stop at an outstanding traditional Greek tavern to enjoy a fabulous lunch and excellent wines. We can also arrange a visit to a spectacular seaside tavern near the sea so that you can combine your lunch with some beach time.
Winery in Rodos follows a tradition of 2,400 years!
Embona is a small village and it is considered the wine capital of the island. It may not have any picturesque architectural features; however, it is one of the most popular suggestions for a trip inland in Rhodes that combines folklore, a lively atmosphere, and good food. Here you will be able to stop and taste a big variety of fresh wines at different wine factories. At each stop, you may be also given small portions of appetizers to complement your taste of the wine – olives, cheese and home-baked bread from the region.
The wine tasting is absolutely free and you aren’t obliged to purchase anything. Of course, a bottle of wine will be a wonderful souvenir from Rhodes, or maybe a bottle of original olive oil with no conservatives, or just a small bag of mountain herbs for your tea in the winter. All products are fully natural and with origin from this gorgeous mountain village.
Nothing is more characteristic in Rhodes than the olive trees that grow in the valleys and mountainous areas in Rhodes.
A large number of residents and professional companies produce several tons in Rhodes, cultivated mainly in the East of the island towards the South. Top-quality olive oil is the main ingredient for the high standard of the Mediterranean Diet.
We can arrange a stop to try and taste this local treasure and take some bottles back home.
Wonderful time in Rhodes
My husband Tom and I had a great driver by the name of Nicholas. Nicholas was very informative, friendly, caring and catered to our every need. Our day in Rhodes was beautiful, we visited many sites, had great food by the sea, tasted delicious olive oil, honey and wine. Our time went by way to fast. We really enjoyed the company of Nicholas. We hope to come back to Rhodes and look him up again. Thank you again for a wonderful time. SIncerely, Tom and Carol from Lake Villa, IL USA
Amazing, beautiful, informative private tour – you won’t regret it!
I took my Mom from Israel to Rhodes as a 70th birthday present. We booked this private tour since my Mom has mobility issues and uses a walker. Our driver, Nikos, picked us up from our hotel and we spent the next 7 hours or so with him. He was very warm, friendly, funny, kind, knowledgeable with very good English. We felt very comfortable asking him questions about Greek life. He was very solicitous of my Mom and her ability to get around easily and up and down stairs with his help, taking her walker in and out of his car when she needed it. My Mom wanted to buy jewelry so he took us to a jewelry factory/showroom that was WOW. Only a local would know about it. Ditto the taverna he took us to for lunch towards the end of our day. It was hidden away at the side of the road. If you didn’t know it was there and worth a stop, you’d drive right by it. He also stopped off at a place that sold many types/flavors of olive oil and olive oil products and another ceramics/pottery workshop with very beautiful things. And of course a stop in the famous, beautiful Lindos town which is a MUST. I also have to say that my communications via email with the booking office were very detailed, informative, prompt and accurate. I cannot say enough good things about this tour.
Excellent Faultless Service
I looked at various options as to how to take in the sites in and around Rhodes and am delighted that I choose this option; the service from start to finish was fantastic from the email exchanges with Maria to the driver on the day, Nicholas who was brilliant. We were picked up directly from our hotel in a beautiful top of the range Mercedes in the morning and driven to Rhodes old town, through which our driver was able to drive through as there is some access for cars before 9 o’clock.
Nicholas was very knowledgeable and his English was excellent. After the tour of the old town we then took in various other sites in the Rhodes area before travelling to Lindos via a fantastic shop which sold excellent olive oil, olives etc.
Our tour was a 5 hour tour and we saw more than we had anticipated thanks to the efficiency and knowledge of the driver Nicholas. We arrived back at the hotel by 1.30 and therefore had the rest of the day to enjoy at our leisure. I spoke to others at our hotel who went on a bus tour which took all day to only cover some of the sites that we took in, in 5 hours and although cheaper, there’s was not enjoyable as ours.
I am aware that this company can tailor various tours to your needs and I have no hesitation in recommending this company – although a bit dearer than bus tours it is def worth it.
I can not praise our driver Nicholas high enough and he is an asset to the company and a great Ambassador for Rhodes.
BEAUTIFUL SIGHTS; GREAT SHOPPING; WONDERFUL GUIDE
Our guide Aga was exceptional. He explained the history but gave us plenty of time to shop and enjoy the people and their culture.
Best of the Best in Rhodes with Michael and Constantine
What an amazing one day in beautiful Rhodes. Our group of 6 required two cars so Michael and Constantine picked us up at ship side of the port. We only had to walk a few yards to find them. The girls went with Michael and guys with Constantine.
They were very personable and knowledgeable. Our first stop was Old Town Rhodes where we were able to view the Street of Knights and other sights. From there we drove to the Mandraki harbor. The Monastery there is beautiful. Then we drove by the Acropolis and Monthe Smith Hill. These were great places for photo ops. Our favorite part of the tour was leaving the city for Lindos. Michael and Constantine took the back roads through the countryside through the farmland to Lindos. They stopped to pick us oranges from the trees to eat and I took photos of a local greek farmers geraniums that were gorgeous. We visited St. Paul’s Bay and saw the small chapel of St. Paul then visited Anthony Quinn Beach. It was all so beautiful. We had such a fun day and to top it off they took us to a small village on a beach for a delicious lunch. Of course, we had a greek salad and shrimp cocktail. The owner treated us to desert of homemade baklava and ice cream. The restaurant had a small gift shop where we did some last minute souvenir shopping. We returned to the ship extremely satisfied with our tour.
I highly recommend Rhodes Taxi Tours with Michael and Constantine.
