Kamiros ruins worth the ride if you like this kind of expeditions! Ruins are impressive, you can really imagine how it was by this time. Agora, therms and village are well preserved. Unfortunately not the temple on the top. There are few explanations in Greek and English which is not really the case in others spot as Acropolis (Lindos) You... More

interesting to see. there's not a huge amount there and sadly no signs to tell you what things were used for but we had a laugh trying to guess. Worth going to say you've been but you will be done in an hour

I had read mixed reviews about this place, however was keen to visit as our accomodation was only 15 minutes away so thought it was worth an explore. The one piece of advice I did take from other reviews was to go first thing in the morning due to the heat and I would absolutely recommend this. We had our... More

As a general point get a good quality map or use a satnav as the tourists maps aren't that great and this along with several other of the attractions around the island wasn't that well signposted. Even though we're not that interested in history this was a fascinating place to visit as you can easily see how the city was... More

Was a well maintained and interesting site, that alowwed you to see how the old town was laid out. It has parts ropped of to preserve the ruins, but has a good pathway to allow you to negotiate the site and see it all. It gets hot here so take plenty of water. The views from the top of the...

Lovely place! I liked the way it was rebuilt and maintained. I liked the fact that I could see how Ancient Greeks lived and how a city was organized.

Thoroughly recommend a visit here,we arrived late afternoon when it was a little... More

The Ancient Greeks certainly knew how to choose a breathtaking spot for their city state! A tranquil and awe inspiring site for all the family, but beware the intense heat. Go prepared with water, a decent hat and a camera - it is most definitely worth the trip.

I walked up to Lindos Acropolis, I walked upto Rhodes Acropolis both of which were worth the walk but this 300 yr B.C. town absolutely blew us away. It has a few information boards so you can read about the city and so much of the structures of the buildings are still intact you can really get a feel for... More
