BOOK THIS PACKAGE
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.

Itinerary

Best Honeymoon Ever!!

We took a 10day honeymoon to Athens, Mykonos and santorini and everything was planned perfectly. The itinerary included amazing excursions such as a sailing cruise, caldera hike, tour of the acropolis etc. They were all great and the people working were all so nice. We felt like VIP’s the entire trip. Drivers were planned for us, boarding passes sent to us before the flights. The entire trip was stress free and we had someone in each location to talk to if we had questions. I will 100% be recommending Antelope travel to all my friends and family. Thank you!!!

The Perfect Greek Vacation

Me and my Girlfriend took a trip to Greece with Antelope Travel and it was nothing short of perfect. Their driver and staff were super helpful, polite, and warm. We gave them a few ideas and they turned it into an amazing itinerary that was both packed with fun things to do and good recommendations and flexibility to allow us to discover our destinations in Greece to the fullest. We highly recommend their services and we will be going back to them for our next Greece vacation!
