This walk uncovers the hidden nooks and crannies of Rhodes' Old Town by walking through the Backstreets. You will walk, talk and interact, perhaps teach me something if you're an architect or builder: I want to learn from other disciplines and experiences too. The walk will start at St. Catherine’s Hospice, pass St Catherine's Church ruins, go through the Jewish Quarter, remote streets near the walls and turn inwards down the lesser known streets of the south of the city, then up to the ruins of St. John's Church of the Collachium and ending at the Grand Master’s Palace.
I have a PhD in History on the military order called the Knights Hospitaller (Knights of Rhodes), who controlled Rhodes from 1309-1522. I've been researching the Knights Hospitaller & the Crusades since 1995 & I'm an internationally renown historian, having written books, articles and hosted a conference on the military orders. I've given lectures at various conferences, plus the Universities of Southampton, Winchester & University of Cyprus & been a guest lecturer at the University of Malta on their Hospitaller Studies MA course. I am a member of the Society for the Study of the Crusades and the Latin East and a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society (UK). I'd like to show people Rhodes Old Town through my eyes, with the insights that only the medieval documents I've read can give: walk in the footsteps of the Knights!
Although we will pass special places, the emphasis of this walk is on the streets themselves, to imagine what life was like for the people who lived in the medieval Old Town. You'll also see how people today live among the shadows of history.

There's a lot of walking in the cobbled streets of the old town, so sensible shoes are essential. This might be a difficult walk for those in wheelchairs, unless they have assistance. In summer, make sure you're protected from the sun & have enough water.
