Used the open top bus and stayed an hour in this lovely peaceful spot. Would have liked to spend more time searching for the lizards that were there, Took plenty of photos but didn't appear to have any kiosk open for drinks. Loved it.

We went there to see the sunset. There's not much left there. Three and a half of columns, theater and a stadium but from the Monte Smith Hill there is a beautiful sunset. we've been there twice. Amazing view

Not the biggest Acropolis on the island but well worth the visit..Very peaceful and the views over Rhodes are stunning..Also at the site is an amphitheatre which is about a quarter of a mile long and used for music gigs.. Nothing on site apart from a small shop and museum so very quaint..

We took a trip upto The Acropolis in Lindos, You can either walk up or ride a donkey up (and down). We had been advised to go early in the day which we did, we walked up (you do have to move over for the donkeys to pass), but once at the top the visit was well worth the walk,... More

How do you title this to make it appeal instantly? The ancient acropolis, theatre and stadium were extensively "restored" by the Italians in the 1930s. Its grandeur has to be imagined but its breathtaking scale can still be seen from the remains on the ground. There is so much potential here for a world-class tourist attraction but I suppose when...

They do not make much of a fuss about this attraction. The views from here are super, we visited using the tourist train costing 6 euros, but the hop on/off bus also goes there and costs 12 euros for the day.

It’s easy to get up to the ancient acropolis of Rhodes, there are busses, taxis, or you can walk. If you take the open top bus you can get off and on when and where you want, in the day. Take a picnic up and enjoy the views; there’s the small amphitheatre/theatre, the old stadium, you can walk among and... More

Imvisit the acropolis every year to see the progress the masons have made in showing visitors wht the complex looked like in its hey day. They are not rebuilding it but using recovered and new stone to demonstrate how impressive and beautiful it looked.
