Acropolis of Lindos, Lindos

(4.3/5 based on 5,000+ reviews on the web)
Perched atop a rocky hill, Acropolis of Lindos represents natural citadel fortified over the centuries by the Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, and the Ottomans. Offering sweeping views of a small town's picturesque harbor, this important archaeological site contains remains of several ancient structures, the most notable of which is a Doric temple dedicated to the goddess Athena and dated to about 300 BCE. A monumental medieval wall surrounds this age-old temple and fortifications built by the Crusaders in the 14th century. The climb up to these ancient ruins can be quite arduous; you can make it a bit easier by arranging for a donkey ride up to the top. Using our online itinerary creator, Lindos attractions like Acropolis of Lindos can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • This tour is not to be missed! The view is outstanding, the site is extraordinary. Do not miss! Mount it was worth it, but if you prefer... There are donkeys.

  • The climb is abrupt, so better take a burro. Fast and very romantic. But what delightful! And the air at the top of which is saturated. Some delight! All those who will rest on Rhodes, I advise you to visit this MAGNIFICENCE)))
