This is Part 6 of a 10 part series on the Disney Magic Mediterranean/Greek Isles cruise. For links to the rest of the trip report please visit here!
Today was another one of my favorite days! I feel like I say that every day of this trip report because, really, it just kept getting better and better. Today is mostly going to be a photo overview. Old Town Rhodes is breathtakingly gorgeous so Brent and I really just wandered around taking photos in awe.
We did not have any excursions planned this day, so we slept in a little! It was probably close to 11:00 by the time we got off the boat, after having our typical breakfast at Cabanas. If I could go back in time I’d have had a sit down breakfast this morning! Not sure why we didn’t think of it before, and I regret that I missed doing so on our trip.
The view from our room, you can see the ship was “parked” right next to an old tower!
The port security building. I always got a kick out of seeing signs in Greek. Guess I’m easy to please 😉
Rhodes is a walled and gated city, so we walked along the road until we found a gate to enter:
The Mediterranean Sea!
Inside the city, we spotted some Mickey ears!
The view was breathtaking:
The inside of Rhodes Old Town was a mix of modern and ancient. All modern shops, surrounded by the ancient architecture!
We decided to climb one of the towers, to get a better view of the sea:
These are the stairs we used to get up to and down from the tower. I was terrified! No hand rails.
We found a small cafe to sit at and enjoy a drink. I got a soda but my husband, well… he got a giant boot of beer. I think it was 2 liters, so a soda bottle’s worth of beer. I don’t know how he did it!
Following the giant glass of beer I had to gently steer my husband back to the ship. At least the view was still pretty!
The drink stations were set up inside the ship again:
More reading and watching sail away from our balcony on the ship, before dinner:
