You will be met at the port to begin your tour.
Drive along the east coast of Rhodes to Lindos, the most beautiful village on the island. The village has been declared a monument for preservation and so has been able to retain most of its traditional color and charm. Above the white homes of Lindos and the blue of the Aegean rises the acropolis, sacred to the goddess Athena Lyndia and a mighty fortress.
The ancient sanctuary is built on ascending terraces, with the Temple of Athena Lyndia (4th century BCE) at the highest point. Also within the acropolis are the remains of a Byzantine Church and the fortification of the Knights of St. John. From the top you can look down on St. Paul’s Bay, where it is said the apostle first set foot on the island in the year 52 CE.
Down from the acropolis, there will be time to walk the narrow streets of Lindos, visit its medieval church, shop or sit to have a cool drink in one of many cafes.
Board your touring vehicle for the medieval Old Town of Rhodes. Take a walking tour to see the Street of Knights and the mighty Grand Master’s Palace.
After touring Old Town, you will have time to browse some of the many shops.
At the end of the day, you will transferred to the port to join your cruise.
