Rhodes is the largest of the Dodecanese islands of Greece in the Aegean Sea. Rhodes is far closer to Turkey than it is to the Greek mainland. Historically it was most famous for the Colossus of Rhodes, one of the Seven Wonders of the World. The main town on Rhodes is also called Rhodes and has been declared a World Heritage Site.

Today the island is a very popular tourist destination and a gateway to the other surrounding islands. Rhodes has been occupied by many different empires over the centuries and is full of ancient monuments and buildings. Notable among these are the Acropolis of Lindos, the Acropolis of Rhodes, Governor's Palace, ancient Ialysos, ancient Kamiros, Kritinia castle, Palace of the Grand Masters, Rhodes Old Town (walled medieval city), Kahal Shalom Synagogue in the Jewish Quarter, the Archeological Museum, the ruins of the castle of Monolithos, St. Catherine Hospice and the Temple of Apollo.
