Rhodes and the Dodecanese Sights

West Excavations

  • Archaeological Site/Ruins

Fodor's Review

These excavations laced through a quiet residential district have uncovered a portion of one of the main Roman streets with many houses, including the House of the Europa Mosaic, and part of the Roman baths (near main Roman street) that was later converted into a basilica. The gymnasium is distinguished by its partly reconstructed colonnade, and the so-called Nymphaion is a lavish public latrine that has been restored. In the Odeon, 18 rows of stone seats remain intact. The West Excavations are always open, with free access, and significant finds are labeled.
