“Stunning”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2013

Stunning views and stunning setting. This was an amazing site to explore!

You can view out towards st pauls bay were st paul landed to spread the gospel. There is a lot of restoration work going on and at the time there were signs suggest that they hope to fully restore parts of the acropolis to what it was really like at the time.

Tip: DON'T GO IN THE HEAT OF THE DAY. It reached 40C the day my wife and I did it. Also pay for the donkeys, its fun even if they walk a little close to the edge!

“Lindos is shops/restaurants - this is Ancient Greece at a manageable scale”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2013

We were among the first people up there on the day we visited and that allowed us to feel like we were there in 'time out of time'. The sea is absolutely gorgeous from there so you can imagine defending the island from this spot. Lovely ruins of temples, nice breeze, always doing archaeological work at the site and many wild and friendly kittens.

“Breathtaking Views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2013

Definately worth a visit. It is 6 euros each to get in and worth the money. There are a few ruins to see and some history to read but the main thing is the views from the top. It is worth the climb for this alone! Do no miss out on this! It is very windy at the top I was blown from my feet so dont stand too near to the edge! It is tiring though and there are a lot of stairs so consider getting a donkey up if you are not very fit. Coming down it is very slippery as well so be careful but it is definately worth a trip! The views are out of this world!

“A lofty fortress”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2013

This is ancient greek history in all its glory. The climb up to the Acropolis can be arduous in the heat or you can get a donkey'taxi' up and back but we decided the long suffering donkeys had enough for the day.The views from the top are out of this world with a panoramic view for miles. There is a rock festival in June for the music fraternity which we did not attend due to other committments. All in all not to be missed if you are in Lindos Town.
