We stopped off here when getting lost driving one day and went for a walk around the ruins, very beautiful and peaceful with the most beautiful views. Would recommend comfortable shoes when walking here as rough terrain although worth the effort to experience real Rhodes history.

Lovely to see the history of Rhodes. You can get of the hop on hop bus which goes past this area. We walked from Old Town Rhodes.

In truth, there is only a small part of the Acropolis standing, with bits of ruins elsewhere. But it was still a very good see, free of charge, and you definitely still got a real 'feel' for ancient Greece. Whilst I would highly recommend that you see this site, I think that this Acropolis could be improved even more by;... More

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

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...
