really small

To be honest I was surprised as I thought the place is much bigger. However, it is rather small and seems like something remained from the town.

Walking from Ixixa to Rhodes on the elevated road you come across Acropilis of Rhodes. The park has a small centre explaining the history of the site and it's remarkable how much is there to see. Columns and tracks including original starting blocks, seating which covered a large area. Paid more to see less around the world.

A late afternoon stroll (just 20 minutes from the new town) and you come to a large informal park-like area which is peaceful after the bustle of the town. I enjoy looking at houses and gardens where locals live so this walk was enjoyable from this point of view. (I walked through the town, rather than along the seafront but... More

This consists of a repaired theatre your not allowed to sit on, but people do, a few pillars and an impressive stadium. It is worth spending an hour or so to wander around this site. The stadium which got my vote, the VIP seats are still mostly there and you can imagine the place during games. The rest of the... More

High up above Rhodes Town in the area known as Monte Smith's, is where you will find both the Acropolis and the Temple of Apollo. The remains of the stadium and small seated theatre are worth a walk around. Worth a visit when in Rhodes Town.

This Acropolis was brought to life by the energy and enthusiastic history presentation of our guide who led us down the three levels of the Acropolis eventually back to the coach.

The Acropolis of Rhodes may seem plain compared to Athens or Lindos which are much better preserved. The nice thing about it is that it's free, there's no crowds and it reasonably accessible. It's about 30 minutes walking from the Old town were told but we had already rented a car to go to Lindos so we stopped by here... More
