The Acropolis of Rhodes, Rhodes

3.9
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.

  • We reached the acronym of Rhodes on the day of our departure since it was on the way to the airport and dire...io I fell in love with Rhodes in its landscapes, sea, this was the only flaw. The Acropolis is left to itself, the columns of the temple are supported by a scaffolding for years from what I understand, there are no precise indications, the amphitheatre seen which was rebuilt completely, the funny thing is that being on a mountain, the view is worth it!

  • The actual acropolis was shut for maintenance when we went but the hippodrome was very impressive. This would be a nice area for a picnic or to play outdoor games. There are shops nearby to buy snacks and bathroom facilities on site. There is also parking available.
  • Acropolis of Rhodes and whole area around it deserve 5 stars no dobout. Pretty place to go for a walk and get into more historic details as it was one of the firsts Olympics place in Greece. I think people of Greece are pround to have such a amazing places like this! and believe me Rhodes has more similar places like this one. Overall would recommend but please respect ancients constructions try not to destroy anything !!
  • Nice because antique and is FREE. But there are not so many written tables around so you can actually see what all the pieces mean. The old stadium is hard to find and there is grass all over. Should be cleaned.
  • Ok so the actual Acropolis is only 3 pillars but don't let that put you off, just down the stairs is a perfect small amphitheatre that's well worth a visit. The 'must see' feature is the Chariot Race Amphitheatre! You can just imagine the ancient Greeks and Romans racing round this amazing theatre centuries earlier. This amphitheatre does not look like it has not been restored either, the genuine article!
  • Sooo you visit the area ..you see the temple and then you ask yourself did I really just came all the way up here just for this? No you didnt.. A few meters away there are some stairs that lead to the Stadium and a Park where you can run , play and have fun! Also , the Acropolis is the perfect spot for you to fly your kite since it is windy most of the times up there😉✌
