It sits on the top of the hill. It is usually along line to get to the ticket booth and pay the 12 euros
Be prepared and get good shoes " it could be slippery". The view from the acropolis is beautiful.
You can get stunning pictures with the small tiny white houses.

A must climb
Oct 2021
This is well worth the climb, actually only a bit of a cardio up- Caution going down as slippery on the smooth stone. Views are worthy of many shots. Some signage (could use more)

Keep hold of small children
Oct 2021
The Lindos acropolis is very impressive and worth the walk up which wasn't so hard. There are few signs though from the main town square so we later found we'd gone up the route the donkeys take which is a little longer. We came down the other way which goes past many souvenir stalls and was very slippery with the highly polished stones underfoot. Only saving grace being a great bar called Captains House on the way down.

The acropolis is hugely impressive with original bits and also parts 'fixed' during the Italian occupation of Rhodes from 1912-1945. The archaeologists are clearly not happy with their 'restorations' as shown in the signs.

There are many steep drops off the side of the cliff with little of no railing so do not go near the edge and keep a tight hold on children. There is one platform with apparent steps down which leads to a big drop after a couple of steps. It's a health and safety nightmare!

Entry was 12 Euros (about £10) each which we thought was a little steep,

Extremely remarkable acropolis. Worth to go up and examine the pieces of ancient greek history. We enjoyed also the magnificent view.

Wonderful Acropolis site and lovely white painted village in Lindos
Oct 2021
We went to Lindos by Boat from Kiotori.
Lindos is lovely with a sandy beach.
Many boats visit as it is so beautiful and many other beaches are not sandy so it can bebusy. The bay is surrounded by cafes, shops and has plenty of sunbeds. The sea is shallow entry so safe for children.
The acropolis is above Lindos so you walk up a rocky path or go on a donkey up there. Then you may need to queue for a while but it was not too bad when we went. Entry is paid.
The site is very large with many levels each with its own ruins and some from different eras that ranged from 4th century BC to 13th century AD. There are useful information boards around the site.
part way up the path you see the lovely white painted village of Lindos with a few more cafes.

Definitely worth the trip to see this and also to see Lindos itself and enjoy a lovely meal by the beach when we came back down the path.

The climb along the side of the acropolis rock is worth your while because when you finally arrive, you'll be rewarded with an amazing view. After your visit of the acropolis you can treat yourself with a freshly squeezed orange juice, just outside the exit/entry . You might need the vitamins :-)

Great Attraction, Worth A Visit
Oct 2021 • Family
Fantastic visit got in free on a celebratory bank holiday! great view over the village and interesting ruins. Please don’t take young children however as it is a hazard and there are high steps without banisters!

A lovely day out, climbing through the "bazaars" of Lindos up to the Acropolis, the views were spectacular and well worth the effort to the top.
