Went to Lindos on the Monday to see the village and more so to visit the Acropolis.
When we arrived we had a bite to eat in one of the Taverna's. We then decided to do the Acropolis before browsing round the many shops there. We had been warned beforehand that the climb to the Acropolis is a long steep climb. We chose the easy option of going up on the donkey's which are in pairs costing 5 euros each. When we got to the point of being able to view the sea and Lindos beach below the guide stopped to allow us to take photos and then he offered to take one of the both of us on the donkeys. We continued the then short distance to the top where we dismounted, tipped the guide and went on our way to enter the Acropolis only to be very disappointed to find that it is closed on Monday's. the guide hadn't told us this as they still earn from it of course. The entry fee into the Acropolis is 6 euros each. Lesson no. 1, don't visit on Mondays if you want to go into the Acropolis.
We wandered back down the shorter path as directed by the guide taking pictures along the way and straight into the shops. There are many shops,tavernas and restaurants to see and it was very enjoyable all the same.

If you enjoy historic sites get up early and beat the crowds on the way up to the Acropolis of Lindos.

You can take a donkey ride (€5) if the steep walk is too much for you or you simply want the experience.

The views from the Acropolis warrant making this trip. Entry costs €6 for adults, €3 for over 65s.

Despite what our hotelier said: 'They are corpulent and need the work' we felt sorry for the poor 'Lindos taxis' (as the donkeys are called by their 'drivers'). These beasts shouldn't truly carry more than 130-140 pounds...unfortunately, few of those riding them qualified. We started wandering up in to Lindos' Old town, stopping at a shop or two and soon finding ourselves on a not so difficult climb, on foot, to the Acropolis. There is a (6Euro?) admission fee and getting inside is worth this nominal cost of maintaining such an amazing piece of Lindos & Rhodes history. I wished that some of that had gone for a bathroom (we saw none). On the last Sunday of the Easter holidays the site was buzzing with people making it difficult to take shots without others in them. Still and all we were pleased with these well-preserved ruins. This is NOT a spot for those with any difficulty walking (indeed, there was a young woman crying nearly on the way down and we had the feeling it was because she had slipped. Another woman amidst a small tour group was frozen on a wall off to the side of the steps saying she wanted aspirin and a cold drink and to stay there until the group returned. KEEP FIT! This site needn't be arduous if you watch your step and keep control of small children (come on, folks, you HAD them, mind that they're safe, will you?)

We visited this on an early Sunday morning when the day was fresh and the Acropolis was open. We were told it was closed on Mondays. The village of lindos is superb with lots of lovely shops and places to eat. The beach is also beautiful.

We wandered through the village and then made the steep climb up to the Acrpolis. Was a bit dissappointed to apy 6 euros each to get in and visit the site. It has various information boards where you can read about certain areas of the site. However, lots of people had guides who seemed to be very knowledgable. Through certain areas, walking on the rocks made it hard and slippy. I wouldn't go in flip-flops! Trainers/walking boots would be best. The views from the top are stunning. If you go to Lindos you should probably visit this site.
