Rhodes is the Crusader Isle in Greece , steeped in ancient history and boasting 300 days of blue skies each year. It lies at the southern end of the Dodecanese chain of islands that follows the line of the Turkish coast. It is one of the most popular holiday destinations in the Mediterranean and has been for many years, attracting relentless and overwhelming waves of visitors from March to November.
Rhodes most popular resorts, such as Faliraki, are now almost totally devoted to package tourism and nurture an insatiable avarice in the islanders that only an unending supply of cash-spending gullible foreigners can sustain.

Corinth map GREECE – Detailed map of Corinth

welcome to Corinth – GREECE

Today, as in antiquity, Corinth, along with Patra, is one of the two major gateways to the Peloponnese. Still, gates are for passage, not for lingering. Stop to see the ships slipping through the impressive Corinth Canal that cuts across the isthmus, then head straight for ancient Corinth, in the hamlet of Archaia Korinthos (Old Corinth), bypassing the modern city altogether. Mycenae and Nafplion have excellent hotels and restaurants-and both are about an hour’s drive from Corinth. In fact, the entire modern town of Corinth (pop. 24,000) has remarkably little to recommend it. The town was moved here in 1834, after an earthquake devastated the settlement at ancient Corinth, successive earthquakes in 1858, 1928, and 1981 destroyed virtually every interesting building in the new town. Corinth is now a thicket of undistinguished, flat-roofed buildings, supposedly built to withstand future quakes.
All this makes modern Corinth a far cry from ancient Corinth, famously splendid and lively. As one Greek proverb had it, “See Corinth and die,” suggesting that there was nothing to look forward to after visiting the monuments (and fleshpots) of the city that dominated trade in Greece for much of the 8th and 7th centuries tl.C. and that had a second golden age under the Romans in the 2nd century.
