What’s Lindos Like?

Lindos

Lindos is a classic Greek island destination in popular Rhodes. White houses, like sugar cubes are dotted on the mountain and the turquoise sea is always inviting. Labelled as a culture town, Lindos is one of Greece’s most famous villages – not because of the beaches – even though they are among Rhodes finest. It is the medieval fortress the Acropolis, a fascinating ruins high up on a 116 metre high cliff that makes Lindos the most visited area on Rhodes. There are many different eras represented – from the Neolithic remains to Rhodes Knights strong fortress walls. The Acropolis is within walking distance from the village.

There is more than the Acropolis to see when you are in Lindos. The old captain’s houses, for example, whose architectural style is a mixture of Arabic, Byzantine and Aegean architecture. Here you can get an exciting insight into how far the 1600-century sailors had taken out into the world and how much wealth they acquired.

Rhodes flights

The main day of departure to Rhodes (RHO) is Wednesday, although some flights are so late that it’s more like Thursday! The second main day of departure for Rhodes flights is on Saturday. If you can fly from an airport with both Wednesday and Saturday flights it should be possible to enjoy a 10 or 11 night duration holiday.
