Rhodes must be counted as one of the most fascinating of the Greek Isles. The old city walls are huge and are in mint condition. Everything you could possible want is included within the old walls except the harbor. Inside you get a feel of the ancient, the modern, the struggling and the affluent all enjoying the most colorful setting in the world. Aphrodite was the great Olympian goddess of pleasure, joy, beauty, love and procreation. Her summer palace stands in ruins in Rhodes, a well-selected setting for a goddess, and is pictured below. Her stone ruins do not do justice to the idea.
