Introducing Ialysos to PetaloudesIa
Heading south from Ialysos, visit the Bee Museum, where you’ll learn about honey making and the history of beekeeping on Rhodes. See bees at work, watch demonstrations of making honey and stock up on honey rum, soap and sweets in the gift shop. To reach the museum, join the super-smooth Tsairi Airport motorway towards Kalithies; it’s on the right, just past Pastida.
From here it’s a short trip to Maritsa from where the scenic road takes you up over pine-forested hills to Psinthos, where you’ll find a lively square lined with lunch spots. To Stolidi Tis Psinthoy has a country feel with wooden beams, checked tablecloths and family photos on the walls. Try the spicy pork, dolmadhes and freshly baked country bread.
