Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

Your tour will start at the pier where you'll board an air-conditioned motorcoach for a scenic 60-minute drive along the east coast of Rhodes, passing historic Mandraki Harbor where the Colossus of Rhodes-one of the seven wonders of the ancient world-once stood. Have your camera ready, as we'll pass plenty of picturesque little villages and medieval structures, as well as a countryside filled with fragrant lemon and orange orchards, verdant olive groves and picturesque vineyards.

Upon arriving at the Acropolis of Lindos, you'll have approximately 70 minutes at the summit to see the magnificent remains of past civilizations. Marvel at the 4th century, B.C. Temple of Athena Lindia of Doric architecture. The view is truly panoramic. Gaze down from the Acropolis and see picturesque St. Paul's Bay where its namesake Apostle is said to have sought shelter during a storm. You can also get a commanding view of the village's clusters of whitewashed houses and its narrow alleyways. There is a shuttle bus available from the parking area to take you down to Lindos Village. The village lies nearly 600 yards beyond. While in the village, you'll have 30 minutes to stroll its picturesque little streets, browse the shops or sit at a café and enjoy a snack.

Once back on board the motorcoach, we'll drive 30 minutes from Lindos Village where you'll have an opportunity to get a souvenir from the ceramic arts factory, as Rhodes has a rich history in ceramics since the ancient times.

Special Notes:

Approximately 270 steps and cobblestone pathways lead to the Acropolis of Lindos. A shuttle bus is available to transfer visitors from the coach parking to Lindos Village. Passengers with physical limitations are requested to take this into consideration.

Please be aware ongoing restoration work is often carried out. Use of an audio headset (included) will enhance your tour experience.

The drive from Rhodes Town to Lindos is approximately one hour long each way.
