The Acropolis of Rhodes, Rhodes

(500+ reviews on the web)
Ruin Tourist Spot
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.

  • An underwhelming experience at best. Historic site? Yes. Tourist attraction? Absolutely not. It's just not set up to facilitate visits. Only couple of pillars remain, covered in scaffolding and left with nothing around it to see or help understand what it once was. The ancient stadium is right next to it and equally unloved.
  • Impressive historical architecture but no information or signage at the site and the scaffolding looks like it's been there longer than the monument. Needs investment to improve it.
  • Must have been great but nowadays not a lot remains to be seen...
  • Not much to do here so bring your tour book! You certainly do get a sense of the scale and perspective of how things might have been all those years ago though. Easy to get to by car so recommended so a short side trip.
  • come for the acropolis - be amazed about the even more ancient work on scaffolding
