Visiting Rhodes in October also means a slightly cooler, more manageable climate for sightseeing.
In Rhodes you have too many historic monuments to mention, but you really do have to go and see the Acropolis of Lindos. We love visiting sights like this but with kids in the middle of August it can be pretty challenging. What’s amazing about visiting Rhodes in October is that you can visit historic places without it being far too hot, and without them being far too busy. Granted we visited when Rhodes was quiet due to the Covid situation but it was fantastic to play mock Olympic games at the Acropolis of Rhodes and see the Acropolis of Lindos without huge queues.
