When you see the picture of the Acropolis temple, it looks nice. And it was probably, but again it's not really well preserved and there is few to see. But below, the theater and the yard are Worth seeing. It's quite impressive, and children could even play a bit. Entrance is free (and there are many possibilities to enter there),... More

We had spent the day in Rhodes town and decided to divert on our journey back to Lindos via the Acropolis of Rhodes. Glad we did. The gymnasium was impressive and unbelievably complete, and therein lies the problem. Having been overwhelmed by how preserved it was and even running around it with my son I was 'disappointed' when on our... More

There's not much to see. Basically, the pictures show it all. The view from the highest point is nice, but nothing special.

Great place to see old and new nestling together. Plenty to see, so much history. Lots of "watering holes" and good restaurants.

Unreal. Almost empty... We basically had the ancient stadium to ourselves. Such an amazing piece of history. The cab driver said we should hop out and take a picture of the Temple then he would take us to Old Town. SO glad we didn't listen and walked the 20 minutes down ourselves. We would've missed the forum and the stadium... More

If ancient history is something you like. This place is something you will love. If I can return to that place this is my number one to visit again.

Make sure you walk to the site up from the town as the area needs to be approached to appreciate its location high on Monte Smith. If you come up from the beach side you get panoramic views across to Turkey and if you come up from the town it would be the way the processions would have probably come... More

Like all ancient ruins it's whether your in to your history or not as to whether you get the most out of a visit. Like a lot of Ancient Greek monuments it's better to understand the history of its origin. Still worth a visit among all of the other ancient sites to visit in rhodes town.

Free and open at all times, reasonable walking distance from the old town. On a map you might see it marked as Monte Smith, the park where it is located. Much of it is reconstructed, but still a pleasant stroll and interesting visit. The temple of Apollo is quite striking.

We visited here whilst doing the open top bus tour. We hired a car and went back the next day so we could get out an explore. Walk to the top of the road and you will see the most amazing views across the side of the island!
