Hospitaller Palace, Old Rhodes, 2023
Went back to apartment, fell asleep for 4.5 hours, realised that I did not come to Old Rhodes Theme Park to sleep, and quickly frog marched myself through the Hospitaller Palace and the Archaeological Museum (originally the Hospitaller hospital).
The Lonely Planet was right that upstairs was not much to write home about, although they have brought in some impressive Roman era mosaics since, to justify the price of admission.
The ground floor exhibits on the history of the island, which Lonely Planet did recommend, were closed, I think because of the evening’s performance needing them as changing rooms.
The palace (and Mussolini’s archaeologists) did a great job of atmosphere, no question there.
