Rhodes & Lindos Tour: 4,5hrs
Drive along the picturesque south-eastern coastline, dotted with white-washed villages, to Lindos, one of the most
important of the three great cities of ancient times. See how this entire city is guarded by medieval walls which
were constructed by the knights of St. John in the 13th century. Within them stands the ancient Acropolis of
Lindos, on the brink of a precipice 400 feet above the sea. From the Acropolis, marvel at the breathtaking views
covering the great expanse of the Aegean Sea and St. Paul’s bay, where the apostle cast anchor during his historic
voyage to Ephesus. Proceed on foot uphill, to the great staircase leading from the Hellenistic Portico to the
Acropolis and Temple of Athena. Should you wish to make your way up by mule, a fee must be paid to the local
muleteer. Return to Rhodes city and enjoy a panoramic drive through the new part of the city before continuing
to Mount Smith to see the ruins of ancient Rhodes, the Temple of Apollo and Diagoras Stadium. Afterwards your
motorcoach will drop you off at Porte d’Amboise, the start of the walking tour through the medieval city of Rhodes.
Follow your guide through the northern part where once lived the knights and their attendants.
