Lindos, a beautiful gem in the southern part of the island of Rhodes. The place emulates everything that you hope that a Grecian island would be; glorious blue seas, white cobbled streets and towering ruins of an ancient Greek civilization.
The main “attraction” is the towering ruins of the acropolis, a fortified citadel atop of the highest point in the town. The historic monument changed hands as much as the town of Rhodes itself from; the Greeks, to the Romans and all the way through to the Ottomans. Basically looking around the citadel is like a glimpse of the history of the Dodecanese.
This place is absolutely stunning so don’t forget your camera, because even if you are not into history, the views are to die for.
The town itself, is one that would come to mind when thinking of the idyllic Grecian town; narrow cobbled white painted streets, lined with little market stalls selling trinkets and linens and obviously at every corner a delicious smell of Aegean cooking comes wafting out of a quaint restaurant.
And obviously after a long hot day in the Grecian sun, there is the perfect spot on the beach to cool down.
If you are not staying in the area but just want a day trip from Rhodes Old Town, you can either drive, which takes just under an hour or you can get one of the many regular bus services down from the main bus station which carry on until the early evening.
It was probably my favourite place in Rhodes, and with good reason:
Have you been to Lindos? I would love to hear what you thought of the town in the comments.
