The Acropolis of Rhodes, Rhodes
(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.

  • Not dream to find something similar to Athens. It is hard to get up to the largest, but there is possibility to rent a donkey. Only the stadium is in good condition and there are only ruins of other venues and not in good condition. The view from there is what is most worth rise...

  • The Acropolis of Rhodes is well worth a visit. The path is built on several levels to reach on a hill from where you can enjoy a wonderful panorama over the city and sea. In summer, I recommend to visit in the morning or late in the afternoon because of the scorching heat: there are few places in the shade and, as far as I know, no convenience store. The site is quite neglected, if not abandoned. But it's free. So it is worth!

  • Solid new ... see especially. ... If you have absolutely nothing to do, you can look, otherwise don't waste your time and energy. The only thing that was pleasant-is to meet there at sunset.

  • Very pricey but an interesting bit of history. It only took us an hour to wander round and take some pics. Amazing views but not worth the entrance fee, not much information.
  • 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.
  • There is not much left of the Acropolis, however it is worth of seeing. Admission is free, but take good boots as the access is sometimes tricky. Currently under scaffolding undergoing restoration.
  • 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.
  • Fantastic view! Great place to have a panoramic view of the town. If you get here at around 19:30 in summer you can cath a beautiful sunset.
