When your cruise ship pulls into port at Rhodes, set out for a private shore excursion to the ancient village of Lindos. Travel along the island’s east coast then explore 4,000-year-old Lindos Acropolis (entrance fee at your own expense) with a personal guide at your side. Stroll past the Byzantine ruins and an Ancient Greek temple set against the Bay of St Paul. Customize your half-day itinerary to your interests, with a possible visit to the Church of the Ascension and more.
Walk around the beautiful Lindos Acropolis and learn about its history from your private guide
Start your shore excursion with a pickup from the Port of Rhodes, and then travel by air-conditioned minivan along the island’s east coast with your private guide. Pass through a collection of idyllic island villages, and then stop in Lindos, Rhodes’ famous ancient village.
Lindos’ pretty streets are fringed by the sugar cube houses found on many a Greek island, but it’s the magnificent 4,000-year-old acropolis that gives the village its star appeal. Work your way up Lindos’ gently winding cobblestone streets, and head inside the acropolis to explore with your guide. Have your camera ready to capture sights of the ruined Byzantine fortress and an Ancient Greek temple, and gaze down at the sweeping Bay of St Paul.
After discovering the delights of Lindos Acropolis (entrance own expense), make your way back into the village to visit the Byzantine Church of the Ascension. Admire its stately interiors and stained glass windows, and then enjoy some free time to explore the village independently.
Return to your minivan, and travel back along the breathtaking coastal roads. Your private tour then finishes with a drop-off at the Port of Rhodes.
