Starting point: Rhodes

We begin our leg on the sunny island of Rhodes. The medieval city of Rhodes with it’s beautiful narrow and cosy streets offers an abundance of beaches, bars and ancient sites. This Mediterranean island is famous because it was once home to the Colossus of Rhodes, a 108-foot bronze statue that towered over the city like a god on earth, an eternal reminder of Rhodes' victory over its enemies. We will enter this very harbor where the statue was standing.

The next stop is Astypalaia, the westernmost one of the Dodecanese islands of Greece, famous for it’s beaches and hiking trails.
