No. 30 Rhodes, Greece

32 of 33

Rhodes, the largest of the Dodecanese islands, combines ancient ruins with a dynamic café and restaurant scene. Anchored by Rhodes Town, the popular destination is also beloved for its outlying villages, such as labyrinthine Lindos. Add ample sunshine, some of Greece’s most pristine beaches, hidden coves, and remnants of an Islamic and Jewish past, and you get a taste of the entire Mediterranean on a single island.
