construction site of Lindos
Aug 2021
Ticket costs 12 euro. Site under construcion of ancient and other buildings.
Overcrowded. Should come at 8.00 -9.00 in the morning, if you visit at summer because of heat.
There are hords of different kind of sales stands or just grounds with different kind of goods, till you get there. Anoying.

Wonderful historical place
Sep 2021 • Couples
Lindos is a lovely town and so worth a visit with many restaurants, cafes, shops! Acropolis is of cause the main attraction. A lot of history. Wish they would have tours through the day that you can join if you are not arriving with the group. In September was about +30 in the sun. Visiting this place in the height of summer would be very hot.

Amazing - go early to beat the crowds
Sep 2021 • Friends
This is a must see! It really is amazing. Some tips:
* Try and arrive as early as you can to beat the crowds. We arrived at 9.30 and did not have to queue.
* Would highly recommend walking up the paved donkey track which is a gentle incline with no steps.
* Take plenty of water with you.
* The history of this place is fascinating but quite complicated. Either read up before you go, or read the information boards or try & listen in to the organised tours.
* It takes about 10min to walk up from the old town you then need certainly 45min to 1hr to fully appreciate your surroundings.
* We walked down main path which is mainly steps. Although slippery in some places we wearing flip flops and didn’t fall over!!! Just be careful of the slopes with no steps - the stone is very well worn & there is no handrail take it steady.

Great views and some interesting historical remains (ancient and medieval) - worth the queue
Sep 2021 • Couples
Great views and you can read more abt the history - worth the wait despite a long line, luckily area is large enough for it to feel quite empty despite many visitors. If you really don't want to stand in line, the view from the road/Lindos town and from the water (boat) are impressive enough as well :)

Worth the walk!
Sep 2021 • Friends
The Acropolis offered a very nice view of the Lindos village. You can see all the roof terrace restaurants. You can access it by a short walk up the hill from Lindos.

Wonderful place, well worth the visit
Sep 2021 • Family
Beautiful and historic. Long walk up through the winding streets of Lindos. Lovely shops to browse on the way up and down.
Beautiful views once at the top. Take plenty of water if visiting in the summer. We arrived as it opened at 0930 and wasn't too busy. I can imagine it being very busy during the day. 13 euro entry for adults and 6 euros for children, very much worth the costs.
Quick tip - when coming back down, the paving and stone becomes quite slippery, wear decent footwear, not like me in flip flops!
Prepare to also get a bit lost in the streets of Lindos, all part of the fun, but quite confusing.

A must-see on Rhodes island!
Sep 2021 • Couples
A must-see when on Rhodes island.
The walk up is steep with many stairs, the last part of the walk is pretty slippery on those rock plates. I totally recommend to wear solid shoes, do not wear slippers/Flipflops.
The site is surrounded by a stunning view of ocean and coastline and blue sky!
I recommend to come early (they open at 8 am) , to avoid the crowd and the midday heat (there barely any shade up there)!

Amazing views
Sep 2021 • Couples
Initially sceptical about going here but really pleased we went. Climb isn’t that bad but quite slippy in places so care needed. Magnificent views from the top. €12 admission is a bit pricey but once you reach the top hard to walk away.

Worth the hike!
Jul 2021
It's worth it. In fact, I thought this Acropolis was better than some of the places we visited in Rhodes. It is a bit of a trek to the top, and wear comfortable shoes, preferably tennis shoes. Many people wearing sandals or flip-flops were slipping walking up and down the steps. The views from the top are breathtaking. Drink it all in. There are many ruins to see, but for my money, spend some time looking down onto St Paul's Bay. And then, go down and enjoy the bay!

I think 1 to 1.5 hours is a fair amount of time to expect walking around the Acropolis and taking in the views.

It was 12 euros to get in and very much worth every bit of it!

A must for history buffs
Sep 2021
If you choose the right time--early morning or evening, the climb is not arduous at all. The initial climb is very slippery and steep. Not recommended for young children, elderly or disabled. It gets better as you go further up but you still have to deal with a steep set of steps.
The entry fee is €12 per adult and children from the EU are exempt from paying. I do not know what counts as their cut off age for children. I think I can guess why the fee is so high but that is another topic. It closed at 7:15 pm and that varies so check the closing time at the entrance.
I would recommend the Acropolis for people who are interested in history or those who like some adventure or both. For all the others this was a backdrop for a photoshoot. Although why they wanted to risk life and limb just for that when you can get similar views from all over the town at a slightly lower altitude, I don't understand.

This is not a must- do if photographs are your goal; you can get just as good ones near the parking areas around Lindos. Also, families with young children must be very careful as there are opportunities to lose your children all over the place. And it is very very dusty and rocky --easy to stub a toe as we found out.
But if you love history and want to see it come alive, it is really a magnificent place. Do read up on it before you get there because there is not much information other than a lot of plaques about various statues and the many reconstructions it has gone through. Nothing on the medieval part at all.
We enjoyed it very much.
