VISITING THE MT. OF PROFITIS ILIAS

Profitis Ilias mountain is the third highest in Rhodes island. You can find a variety of restaurants and hotels on the bottom of the mountain. But what makes it really worth visiting is the hike to the top. You can expect to experience a full grown forest of pines along the way to the top of the mountain. Calming, a break from the Greek sun. With its 300 stair your effort will be rewarded once on the top where you will find a 360 degree beautiful view of the island. Also,on top you will find an old orthodox-christian church! During your hike you will find a villa meant for Mussolini who never visited it, and also the old villa of Mario de Vecchi.
