Filerimos-Kamiros-Valley Of The Butterflies – Full Day
Pick up at Rhodes port. After a short drive to the west coast, we will ascent to the top of Filerimos Hill, where you will visit the monastery of Our Lady and the remains of the ancient acropolis of Ialysos, one of the three ancient cities of Rhodes Island. Visitors can walk along a 'Golgotha', a tree sheltered pathway with a series of shrines with scenes of the Holly Passion.
After leaving Filerimos, we follow a scenic drive down the west coast of the island, viewing diversified villages to reach the hill top of Ancient Kamiros. The archaeological site reveals the remains of a city, a characteristic example of Hellenistic urban layout and design, with a division into zones of public and private buildings, arranged around the natural slopes of the hill, with a chessboard system of streets.
Then we continue to the Valley of the Butterflies, an idyllic and unique ecological setting of trees, streams and waterfalls. From June to September thousands of butterflies take refuge in the crevices during daylight hours.
End of the tour we return to port.
