Rodini Park, in Rhodes Town

Next door (3 km from centre of town) is Rodini Park which was probably the first landscaped park in the world. It was still popular with the Romans some years later and they left a bit of an aqueduct here. The park lies in a green and shady bed of a stream. Here is an ideal environment for the peacocks which live and breed freely in the park. It's a pleasure to come here even in the heat of the day. Enjoy the cool walkway which leads along the bank of the stream.

A walk of about 10 minutes will bring you to a tomb dug into the rock. The tomb is known as the tomb of the Ptolemies. The tomb dates from the Hellenistic period and the edges of each side are decorated by 21 Doric half columns. The restaurant at the entrance of the park is only occasionally open.
