Monte Smith

The top of Monte Smith, a hill named after the British admiral Sir William Sidney Smith, who rose to fame during the French Revolutionary Wars (1792-1802), offers a splendid panorama of the city of Rhodes.

From this serene vantage point, far from the urban hustle and bustle, one can see the town of Rhodes spread out below, and also the surrounding Ixia Bay with its glittering azure waters. On slopes of the hill itself are the ruins of the Hellenistic Acropolis of Rhodes which includes the Temple of Apollo and an ancient stadium.
