Getting There and Getting Around Rhodes

Travel to Rhodes is either by air or by sea. Many ferries sail daily from Piraeus (the main port of Athens) for the Dodecanese with the journey to Rhodes taking between 13 and 17 hours depending on the number of stop-offs at other Greek islands included in the ferry’s itinerary to Rhodes. Ferries also depart from Thessalonica, Santorini, Mykonos and Crete.

During the summer months Diagoras International Airport, located 14 km south west of the island’s capital, is well served by scheduled and charter flights from many European cities as well as Athens, Thessalonica, and some of the Aegean islands.

The island’s road network is well developed. Although the majority of visitors can easily get around by taxi or by bus, those who want to discover the hidden gems need their own vehicle. Finally, there are boats regularly departing daily for the neighbouring islands and also to many of Rhodes’ otherwise inaccessible beaches.
