We parked at the top of the Acropolis and walked down to the amphitheatre - not a bad visit if you are passing as it is free, but we didn't find a lot of (or any!?) information about the place, but had a nice walk around anyway. It is signposted so easy to get to by car. Follow signs rather... More

A perfect place to understand ancient Civilizations and also the mind of them. Although it is hot, enjoy it with using a hat or umbrella. Be careful of what you wear as sandals and flip flops may not let you walk around easily, thus wear rubber shoes and be ready to climb some steps

This is a must see trip, although it was a very hot day, it was well worth the climb up the steps, views are breathtaking

A 10 minutes walk far from the Old City of Rhodes there is the even older Acropolis and Stadium of Rhodes. It is great to watch the sunset from here.

This is better than the tourist packed acropolis at Lindos, less columns and walk throughs but no queuing and the huge stadium makes it worth visiting. Don't miss the small display area (air-conditioned room) to the side of the lower carpark which has some information about what you are actually looking at, I found that helped me a lot! Take...

these ruins aren't marketed much, we found out about it through our hotel. Free admittance and not much up there. We got a taxi up from our hotel (7 euros) and walked back down to the old town which only took 10 minutes. Its well sign posted so easy to walk up. THere is remains of the acropolis and still...

When it comes to ancient stuff there is much more in Greece, so in my opinion it pales a bit in comparison to other places and lack that "whoa" factor of something truly special. But it might be worth to visit nethertheless if you have the time.

The signs were spotted by us by accident,sad more people aren't guided here by the museums and signs but then again to have so many tramping over it would spoil what we experienced!broken chains sadly around the restricted parts and idiots still climbing over the parts that were being protected from wear and tear! Amazing young man who gave us... More
