Acropolis of Lindos

The Basics

The island of Rhodes has been inhabited for many thousands of years, and it played an important role in ancient Greek civilization. Among the historical sites on the island are the Acropolis of Lindos, 28 miles (45 kilometers) south of modern-day Rhodes city. Sitting on a hill above the town, the Acropolis showcases architectural elements from different historical eras.

The ruined buildings that make up the site include the Doric Temple of Athena Lindia, the gateway and monumental staircase of the former Sanctuary, and a covered colonnade (known as a stoa) that once measured 285 feet (87 meters) and contained 42 columns. Many visitors choose to take part in a guided tour to learn more about the historical context of the ruins.

Loved it!
This was such an easy and enjoyable way to visit Lindos. The driver was punctual, courteous, and professional. The van was air conditioned and comfortable. I felt the time that we were given to explore Lindos was substantial. I'd do it again!

Shore Excursion Rhodes, Acropolis of Lindos, Medieval Town, Filerimos Hill
John was an amazing tour guide! We toured the Palace of the Grand Master of the Knights of Rhodes and the museum, strolled the Street of Knights. It was amazing! We climbed to the top of the Acropolis of Lindos. The view was breathtaking and the Temple was amazing! Walking through the village of Lindos was very nice. The Filerimos Monastery was impressive. The views were amazing and I was surprised to see so many peacocks! John was so friendly and knowledgeable. I highly recommend this tour!
