Rhodes, Greece

Ancient Lindos & its Acropolis

DETAILS

  • 41/2
    hrs Estimate Duration

A beautiful drive along the east coast of Rhodes to Lindos will take you past picturesque little villages and through a splendid landscape of orange and lemon groves, gnarled olive trees, and lovingly tended vineyards.


An ancient Doric town, Lindos is dominated by a magnificent acropolis, located atop a strategic hill overlooking the bay. You may walk to the summit or hire a donkey to take you most of the way. The views are absolutely breathtaking, especially of the waterscape below where St. Paul is said to have landed in 58 A.D. Other highlights of the famed archaeological site are the ruins of a walled fortress built in the 15th century and the remains of the ancient Temple of the Lindian Athena. It was was consecrated to the goddess Athena and also named for Lindia, a pre-Hellenic divinity.


Upon descending from the acropolis, you can meander freely through the narrow streets and past clusters of whitewashed houses that lend Lindos its distinct look. A haunt of artists for years, the village also boasts a myriad of shops carrying locally made jewelry, leather goods and ceramics.


Need to Know:

Note: Tour includes approximately 2-hours of moderate to strenuous walking on even and uneven surfaces and negotiating 200 steps at the Acropolis of Lindos.
