Tour to Ancient Lindos town and Akropolis of Lindos.
The ancient Doric town of Lindos lies on a rocky promontory 30 miles south of Rhodes town on the island's east coast. This scenic drive passes orange and lemon groves, prosperous vineyards and gnarled olive trees. As your motorcoach makes the last bend of the road, the views of Lindos are fabulous; impressive rocky cliffs rise 400 feet from the sea dominating the town's two harbors. The imposing temple standing high above a sheer cliff dominates the town, and the striking site of the acropolis surrounded by the blue seas attracts artists from around the world. Below lies the Medieval fort and village clustered with pretty white houses and its streets paved with intricately patterned black and white pebbles collected from the sea. There is a 20-minute climb through the narrow streets of the town and another 250 steps up to the temple, so this climb is not for everyone, but very rewarding for the physically fit. Once you arrive to the top, explore ancient sites of the last conquerors including the 4th century B.C. Doric Temple of Athena Lindia with its double-winged portico. Also highlighting the acropolis is a Byzantine church, and the remains of the castle-citadel of the Knights of St. John. From the summit there are great views of the fishing harbor of Psarto, where tradition says St. Paul landed. After browsing through the village with its small shops, brimming with attractive souvenirs, return to the harbor in Rhodes by the same route.
