3.9/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web
The last vestiges of the island's ancient past, the remains of The Acropolis of Rhodes sit on a hill overlooking the Aegean Sea. This structure dates back to the 3rd century BCE and once housed large temples and public buildings, along with a network of subterranean sanctuaries. Excavated during the early decades of the 20th century, the acropolis suffered massive damage in bomb raids during World War II. Explore the partially reconstructed section, which features several important monuments, including a temple dedicated to Apollo, a small theater, and a stadium.

  • Unless you have an exciting guide to revive this page of history, this site does not have a lot of interest.

  • Amazing place to visit, but not suitable for small kids! There are a lots of stairs and not really any safety barriers. 
  • We went early morning before the crowds , found it be an easy walk up , very interesting and the view of Lindos was wonderful 
  • A nice, casually presented piece of history. Of you want tour guides and information, go elsewhere. If you're happy to get a bit of history and some nice sights for free, it's great. Wish you could sit in the theatre though... Expect to spend an hour here.
  • Free of charge to visit, a must visit on any tourist tour but not as impressive as other Acropolises. The stadium is well preserved and partially rebuilt. Good for a walk in the park.
  • An amazing place! Go there! Bathe in bay afterwards.
  • Don't go expecting to learn much. It's an underdeveloped historic site, with no information. Then again, it's cool because relatively few people go to it, and it doesn't cost money to visit.
  • Surprisingly impressive as I was not looking to go there and just happened to be walking that way. Also there is a nice view from up there, and I got my bearings, being able to see both the East and West coast at the same time.
