(Approximately 3 1/2 hours)

Build at the southeastern part of the island and about 36 miles from the city of Rhodes, Lindos is one of the most picturesque parts of Rhodes. A little white village today, of about 1.000 inhabitants, with it's Acropolis towering above, captures the heart of all, who visit. It was one of the three ancient cities of Rhodes.

Protected by goddess Athena,the history of the city is long and troubled. Among the places,that we can visit,are the beautiful houses of the Lindian captains, famous for the cobblestone floors and the church of Virgin Mary. The greatest monument of all is the Acropolis of Lindos, the second best preserved of Greece.
The lindian ship,that's carved on the rock,the ancient stoa and the temple of Athena are the greatest of the buildings, that are surrounded by the strong walls,that the Knights of S. John’s the Baptist reconstructed during the 14th century A.D.
Two amazing bays surround the village and offer the opportunity of swimming at the clear blue waters of Mediterranean sea. S. Paul’s bay is one of them. It took it's name from S. Paul the Apostle, who once docked there and introduced Christianity to the locals.

Small traditional restaurants offer greek specialties and at the shops the visitors can find different kind of souvenirs. The donkeys can give you a ride up at the Acropolis, if you wish, instead of walking.

*Good walking capability is required only for the Acropolis. Fees for the Acropolis are 12 Euros per person, children under 18 years old free.
This excursion requires vehicle. It can also be combine with Kallithea.
