The walk is definitely not as tedious as people say, it is steep however if you’re in good health it should not be a problem. It took us appropriately 10/15 mins to walk up, we stopped to admire the views. Definitely worth it. There was no queue, we walked straight in- My boyfriend had free entry as he is under 25 and Italian, I paid €6 being under 25 and British. If you are under 25 remember to bring your ID/photo ID. We got to the acropolis at around 8:30am which we thought was the perfect time, by the time we were leaving (9:30am) there was a large queue and the sun was beaming. At this time of the morning there was a fair bit of shade which made it very tolerable. There is also a shop just before the entrance for refreshments. Please be mindful of the use of “donkey transport” it may seem desirable in the heat but the route up there is no place for a donkey.

You can walk up to the Acropolis or get a ride on a Donkey which should cost 6 €/person.
The entrance is 12 €/person and it is a must see in Lindo. I suggest to be up not later than 9 a.m. the sun is very strong after 11 and you will end up waiting in very long lines i.e. get up early!!!

Main attractions: 1)ruins of the goddess Athena Lindia, temples from the 4th century BC (uppest point) 2)Hellenistic Stoa 3)Byzantine chapel of Saint John. 

The view from the top is amazing!!

Wear good tough shoe's.
Some steps are uneven and a large area is just rock to scramble over to get to the top. Many of the steps have no handrail either side. Having said that we are over 70 with heath problems and the site and views are superb.
Go very early, when we came down at about 11.30 there were 100 people or more waiting on the steps to buy tickets. No discount for non EU countries as stated on their website it's 12 euros per adult.

I took my family of 6 and the girlfriend of my eldest son to visit the acropolis and we were stunned not just by the site but also by the village of Lindos and the amazing views. Pictures cannot pay justice to the overall experience but needless to say it is an absolute must visit place if you happen to be in Rhodes. Visit late to avoid significant crowds, be prepared for a bit of a hike and don’t worry about paying 5€ for a small slushy at the site cafe due to the unbelievable views from the seated area.

Loved this! Stunning. YOU MUST GO!
Be prepared for a bit of a climb up but it is do-able, take your time. You meander down from the buses and into the town (follow the crowds) and begin strolling between the shops and bars. The stairs rise gently at first as you head to the path entrance. So funny - we heard one woman say to her family at this point - "go one without me, I can't make it!" and we weren't even on path! I hope she made it. Take a parasol and plenty of water, you'll be fine.
TIP: we hit the back of a long queue for tickets and the old woman selling lace by the side of the path was berating us Brits for Brexit (she said entry would have been free) and told us to go online and get the tickets to jump the queue. I could have kissed her! My son did it all on his phone and we marched all the way passed the queues and right up to the turnstiles with our QR codes. Sorted.
Once on site, it is simply stunning, You won't regret the climb. AMAZING!

The setting is stunning and I think it is more dramatic than the much better known one in Athens, even if it is much smaller.

We stayed overnight in Lindos and were able to make the short, steep, climb at 8am, before it got too hot and the bus and boat tours from Rhodes arrived, so it was virtually deserted. At 2pm it would probably be a different experience - hot and crowded

I recommend turning left once you are through the entrance way at the top of the stairway - to get the best approach to the Acropolis itself.

Although the Italians apparently made a mess of some of the reconstruction work in the 1930s (why not use cement and iron to repair a 2000 year old monument??), the restoration does allow you imagine how it must have looked.

Really memorable

Visited here in mid October. It was still 28 degrees and the walk up from Lindos town can be a bit demanding in the heat. There were locals offering mule rides to and from the summit. If it is a hot day, make sure you take plenty of water with you.

Entrance fee for 1 adult is 12€ and I recommend about an hour to look around. The best part are the impressive views you get from such a prominent position. The site dates from around the 6th century BC and has been added to and taken away over the years.

I guess it's a must do visit if ever you're in Lindos. Some of the ruins are a bit underwhelming but that's compensated by the impressive vistas. It's still an iconic part of Rhodes and worth a visit.

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,

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.

Worth a visit at least for educational purposes. Impressive site, on the hill (hence the name), magnificent views. To skip the queue, buy the tickets online on the official website of "Hellenic Organization of Cultural Resources Development" (cheaper than from dustributors you can online) and then just past the crowd queueing up the stairs.
