Village of Lindos: Visit Lindos village full of picturesque alleys, traditional aromas and cosmopolitan attitude forms a unique puzzle no one can resist. Above the modern village of Lindos rises the acropolis of Lindos. You will reach there through a short steep-stepped footpath climbs the rocky 116m-high. The Ancient Acropolis of Lindos is a natural citadel which was fortified successively by the Greeks, the Romans, the Byzantines, the Knights of St John, and the Ottomans. From here the panoramic view of the city and the sea is breathtaking! Filerimos Hill: We will also visit the Byzantine Monastery of Our Lady of Filerimos situated at Filerimos hill. The monastery was built in the 15th century by the Knights of Saint John, who had conquered the island that time. The monastery is dedicated to Virgin Mary the Life-Giving Source (Zoodochos Pighi) and its architecture is much different than the usual monasteries in Greece. Acropolis of Rhodes: We continue to visit the Acropolis stood on the hill now known as Monte Smith and consists of the Temple of Apollo (the remains of the temple of Athena Polias and Zeus Polieus) the archaeological park that contains the Hellenistic stadium, built in the 3rd century BC, where the athletic events of the Alioi Games took place. Stroll at the Medieval Town: We return back to the old Medieval town of Rhodes which is listed in the World Heritage Sites List of UNESCO, one of the best preserved medieval settlements in the world. We stroll in its meandering streets with the most famous of all, the Street of Knights. At the highest point in this road we will see the grandiose castle, the Palace of the Grand Masters, with its enormous towers and now a wonderful museum. It is worth exploring the large Hall of the Council, the Knights’ Dining Hall and the private chambers of the Grand Master.

Fascinating visit to discover Lindos and its acropolis. The climb was not too heavy, our guide Dimitris prepared some stops during which he told the history of the site with anecdotes and curiosities. The view from the acropolis is beautiful. Visit and (and guide!) Absolutely recommended.
