Traditional Day with us



This day trip is the ultimate experience for those who want to live a traditional Greek experience on the island of Rhodes.

During our trip we will visit 3 destinations.

Apollona village of Rhodes is located on the southeastern side of the hill of Prophet Elias, only 50km from the capital of the island, the homonymous Rhodes and very close to the highest mountain of the island Attavyros!

In an evergreen area surrounded by wild pines, cypresses and the local olive groves that give unique olive oil every year, Apollona emerges with an area of ​​about 71 square kilometers, an altitude of 330 meters and a total population of 1005 inhabitants.

According to the most prevalent interpretation, the name of the village seems to come from the ancient greek god Apollon.

There we will visit the traditional cafe “Stou Plastira“. Apart from a traditional cafe, this place is also a museum and belongs to the historical cafes of Greece.

It is good to be careful when looking for excursions at local offices. Many local offices write prices without including the transfer from your hotel and these are misleading tactics. In our company, whatever prices you see are the final prices with the transfer to and from your hotel.

One of our most important priorities is that our customers are well informed about the services we provide. You are always welcome to contact us if needed.
