Acropolis of Lindos Tours

star-4.5
8 Reviews
Acropolis of Lindos
An important site in ancient Greece, the Acropolis of Lindos is one of the most important historical monuments on the island of Rhodes in the Dodecanese Islands. Parts of the site were built more than 2,500 years ago, and this remarkably well-preserved ruin draws tourists from all over the world. 

The Basics
The island of Rhodes has been inhabited for many thousands of years, and it played an important role in ancient Greek civilization. Among the historical sites on the island are the Acropolis of Lindos, 28 miles (45 kilometers) south of modern-day Rhodes city. Sitting on a hill above the town, the Acropolis showcases architectural elements from different historical eras. 
The ruined buildings that make up the site include the Doric Temple of Athena Lindia, the gateway and monumental staircase of the former Sanctuary, and a covered colonnade (known as a stoa) that once measured 285 feet (87 meters) and contained 42 columns. Many visitors choose to take part in a guided tour to learn more about the historical context of the ruins. 

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Entry to the Acropolis of Lindos is via paid ticket.
  • The attraction is not suitable for wheelchair users or those with limited mobility. 
  • The site is open to the elements and can get very hot in summer—bring sunscreen, a hat, water, and sturdy shoes. 
  • Enjoy panoramic views over the town and surrounding area.

How to Get There
The Acropolis is on a hilltop outside the town of Lindos. Access is only possible from the town on foot (or via donkey ride), and the climb to the top is steep and strenuous. 

When to Get There
The Acropolis of Lindos is open year-round. From April 1-Oct. 31, opening hours are 8am-8pm, and from Nov. 1-March 31, opening hours are 8am-3pm. The midday sun can be scorching in Greece, so plan to visit early in the morning or later in the day if possible.

Visit the Palace of the Grand Master
If a trip to the Acropolis leaves you with a taste for more history, head to the Palace of the Grand Master in Rhodes city. Built for the Knights of Rhodes in the 14th century, the fortified castle was a citadel of the Knights Hospitaller, a medieval Catholic military order. In the 20th century, it was used by Mussolini as a summer residence before being turned into a museum.
