Rhodes, Rhodes, Greece

The capital of the island, Rhodes offers a wide choice of nightlife. In the area around the harbour there are many bars and traditional Greek taverns, while in the New town one can hear the sounds of the bouzouki and many other traditional instruments drifting from beyond the buzzy restaurants and local bars.
