Place: The Valley of the Butterflies on Rhodes, Greece

Butterfly Valley is located in the municipality of Petaloudes, 20 kilometres from the capital. You can reach it from Rhodes by bus and car.

Valley is rather a narrow park that stretches along the gorge. Among the lakes and streams, trees styrax, emitting into the air aromas of vanilla, bridges you will see a lot of butterflies, clinging to the bark of trees from all sides.

The season opens in May and lasts until November, but it is best to come here in late June, in the most favourable time for new butterflies.

Prices: €5 costs bus from Rhodes to Petaloudes; €5 cost the entrance to the valley in high season and €3 costs the entrance to the valley in low season.
