In my research about the island of Rhodes, I have spent a lot of time learning about the Knights of Saint John and their influence on the island. Then I realized that there's an ancient history here, too.

Has anyone visited the Lindos Acropolis? Do you think I should take a tour or can I learn about it on my own?

I plan to visit next September - do I need to book things in advance? From what I understand the island gets pretty hot, so I was hoping some of the heat would mitigated in September.

you can climb up to the acropolis without the need of a guide.be warned the climb is on worn stone steps & part way there is no hand rail.Lindos in september will be very crowded.Buses will be packed & you could be standing for the entire journey of about 90 mins. It will be 30 C plus in september.


I remember going in August several years ago and it was hot and crowded. Rhodes seemed hotter than everywhere else I went during the trip! Sounds like September is hot and crowded, too. Once you start climbing the Acropolis in Lindos the crowd thins out as you get to the top. All fitness levels can do it. Just take it slow and wear good shoes.

Visiting the Lindos Acropolis is a must-see for anyone interested in history and ancient architecture. The Acropolis is located in the village of Lindos on the island of Rhodes in Greece and features well-preserved ruins of a temple dedicated to Athena, as well as a fortress built by the Knights of Saint John. The views from the top of the acropolis are also stunning, offering a panoramic view of the village and the Aegean Sea. It is a unique experience to walk through the ancient city and imagine how it was in the past.

If you love history, Rhodes should be your next destination!

When many people think of travelling to Greece for history, they may think of Athens or Crete… but I'm here to tell you that Rhodes is one of the best places to visit if you love history. The island is full of mediaeval history and has some of the most beautiful and old mediaeval architecture in all of Greece. Some of the best places to explore this history are Ancient Kamiros, Palace of the Grand Master, and the archeological museum of Rhodes.

Euronet are continuing to install their ATMs

This American company have installed thousands of ATMs in Greece.I saw a new one today 22 February has been installed @ Afandou opposite a taverna & near a bus stop.
Their rate of exchange is pits & their withdrawl fee is high.So best avoided.

Greek island of Rhodes seeking to attract tourists during winter also!!

It might surprise the reader that in my first job in good ol'London town after leaving school in a package Holiday company Rhodes was a thriving winter destination together with Crete and Corfu and Epirotiki Lines were cruising around the Greek islands in the 70s....It always had been an alternative to cold weather conditions in winter months....the same as Spanish Islands..... Kalley Mera from Thailand and Monsoons raining heavily here!

Traveling to Rhodes for the First Time?

I am researching potential places to visit in Greece. Rhodes is on the list because someone told me it was a great place to go to imagine the times when the Greek mythological stories were a prevalent part of the culture (Mandraki Harbor). I was thinking of spending a bit of time there. Do you have any recommendations on what else I should do while there? Some possibilities:
  • Explore the ruins from the Knights of Saint John
  • Acropolis at Lindos
  • Beaches - Faliriki, Lindos Beach, etc (did I miss any beaches - these are the ones that most intrigued me)
What else should I see? Thanks!
