You will be met at the port to begin your tour. Leaving the harbor area, drive to Lindos along the picturesque eastern coastline, scattered with whitewashed villages.
This enchanting site was home to an ancient naval power and a center of the Knights of Saint John in the 14th Century. Within the Medieval walls, the Acropolis of Lindos stands 400 feet above the sea. From the acropolis, you have breathtaking views of the Aegean Sea and St. Paul’s Bay, where the apostle cast anchor on route to Ephesus.
Proceed on foot up to the Great Staircase leading from the Hellenistic portico to the Temple of Athena, one of the most important Temples of the Ancient Greek World.
After visiting the acropolis, you will have some free time to browse the interesting little shops that line the narrow streets of this attractive village.
Continue back to Rhodes Town and the port to rejoin your cruise.
