Street of the Knights (Odos Ippoton) Tours

star-5
4 Reviews
Street of the Knights (Odos Ippoton)
Hailed as one of Europe’s best-preserved medieval streets, Street of the Knights (Odos Ippoton) stretches from the Palace of the Grand Master of the Knights of Rhodes to the port. The lane was once home to the Knights of St. John, who lived in streetside inns.

The Basics
You’re likely to amble along the Street of the Knights at some point during your exploration of  Rhodes Old Town. While there are some information boards explaining the street’s history, walking tours offer a more comprehensive understanding of the role of the Knights of St. John play, a religious military order who used the island as their headquarters in the Middle Ages. 

Things to Know Before You Go
  • The Street of the Knights is an important part of the UNESCO-listed RHodes Old Town, making it a must for history buffs. 
  • The street is stone-paved, steep, and uneven, and may be difficult for travelers with mobility issues to traverse.
  • The centuries-old cobblestones are polished smooth with wear and can be slippery when wet. 

How to Get There
The Street of the Knights stretches between the Palace of the Grand Master of the Knights of Rhodes and Our Lady of the Castle Church near the waterfront. The Avenue of the Knights is a short stroll from Mandraki Harbour and the KTEL East Side Bus Terminal.

When to Get There
The street can become busy, especially when multiple cruise ships dock in port at the same time. Go early in the day or in the evening when both the crowds and the heat die down.

Palace of the Grand Master of the Knights of Rhodes
A stroll along the Avenue of the Knights leads to one of Rhodes biggest historic attractions: the Palace of the Grand Master of the Knights of Rhodes. Originally built in the 14th century by the Knights of St. John, the palace later had to be rebuilt following a 19th-century explosion. It now functions as a museum that displays statues, mosaics, and antique furnishings.
