The Greek island of Rhodes is the largest of the Dodecanese Islands and lies in the eastern Aegean Sea, to the north east of the island of Crete and south east of Athens. The island is also a short distance off the coast of Turkey. Rhodes Town is the island's capital and main town and its Old Town is a rich tapestry made up of different civilisations and cultures. The city's medieval walls, its fortress like buildings, the gates, bastions, narrow alleys, old houses, fountains and busy squares combine to make all visitors feel as though they have stepped back thousands of years. Outside of Rhodes Town the island has a number of small villages and beach resorts that are popular with tourists. The main ones are Faliraki, Lindos, Kremasti, Pefkos, Archangelos, Haraki, Koskinou, Afantou, Paradisi, Trianta and Embona.
From the island's port, ferry services depart to Piraeus by both conventional and high speed ferry. The island is also connected to the rest of the Dodecanese Islands, the Cyclades Islands and to Crete during the summer months.
The Greek island of Patmos is one of the Dodecanese group of islands and lies in the Aegean Sea, just off the west coast of Turkey. Skala is the port town on the island and is also the location of many of the most popular attractions. To the north of Skala is Meloi Beach with is picturesque and is shaded by trees. In the village of Hora there is the Monastery of St. John which is a popular site as is the Cave of Apocalypse which is thought to have been the sacred cave where Saint Ioannis heard the voice of God and wrote the Apocalypse. In the cave visitors are able to see the cross that was engraved by Saint Ioannis along with three small cracks in the rock through which the voice of God came, symbolising the Holy Trinity. The island is also mentioned in the Book of Revelation in the Bible where it states that its author, John, was on Patmos when he was given (and recorded) a vision from Jesus.
