While driving along the east coast of Rhodes to Lindos, you will catch glimpses of the turquoise sea and delight in the landscape, which is carpeted with orange and lemon groves and dotted with classic Greek vineyards.


One of the island's most impressive lookout points is the Acropolis of Lindos, where you will enjoy a panoramic view of serene St. Paul's Bay. Atop the acropolis stand numerous temples, sanctuaries and residences, including the 4th century B.C. Doric temple of Athena Lindia and the remains of the Governor's quarters.


Following lunch at a local restaurant, you will return to Rhodes Town for a fascinating walking tour. Replete with medieval treasures, this section of the city is a joy to explore and part of the fun is meandering through the mazelike streets. Sites to be seen in the Old Town include the Palace of the Knights and Streets of the Knights, and the Archaeological Museum. You will also find architectural details throughout the city, including old coats-of-arms that adorn many of the homes. Following your guided tour, some free time will be made available for you to further explore the Old City at your leisure and you may wish to independently visit the Archaeological Museum. After approximately 1-hour, you will re-board your coach for the return transfer to the pier.


Need to Know:

Note: This tour includes approximately 4-hours of moderate walking on even and uneven surfaces and negotiating 200 steps at the Acropolis of Lindos and 80 at the Grand Masters Palace.
