- Tourists can avoid searing heat, high prices and huge summer crowds by visiting Greece in the autumn
- Trips to both Rhodes and the smaller neighbouring island of Tilos make for contrasting holiday experiences
- Unesco World Heritage Site of Rhodes Old Town has cultural history stretching back thousands of years
- Tilos is a tranquil haven with secluded beaches, wild flowers, remote monasteries and sublime sea views
