It is the principal city of the homonymous Greek island. If you visit this place, you can see one of the Seven Wonders of the World, the Colossus of Rhodes and a lot of the streets are too narrow for automobile circulation.
This Belgian city is actually a campus university where the streets open to the traffic are buried. It is the biggest city in the continental Europe that forbids the motorized traffic over its surface.
