We start the tour from the entrance of the old harbor where the famous Colossus of Rhodes once stood, and then past the many hotel complexes as we drive up to the Acropolis of Rhodes.

From that point you will enjoy an excellent panoramic view. Then we visit the Temple of Apollo, the Greek Stadium and the Greek amphitheater.

We continue our tour to Lindos along the 35-miles of east coast, passing beautiful small villages, with many gnarled olive trees.

As we approach Lindos you will first notice the impressive Acropolis with the village situated ( like a picture postcard ) below. This is a magnificent sight!

We drive south of Lindos, to St. Paul’s Bay which is also has a fantastic view.

Pass By: Colossus of Rhodes, Rhodes Town 851 00 Greece

The Colossus of Rhodes was a gigantic 33-metre-high statue of the sun god Helios which stood by the harbour of that city from c. 280 BCE, one of the most important trading ports in the ancient Mediterranean. Made by the local sculptor Chares using bronze, the statue soon appeared on contemporary travel writer’s lists of must-see sights and was thus known as one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. Sadly, the giant Helios did not last long. Toppled by an earthquake in 228 or 226 BCE, its massive broken pieces cluttered the docks of Rhodes for a millennium before being melted down as scrap in the mid-7th century CE.

Stop At: The Acropolis of Rhodes, Diagoridon 68, Rhodes Town 851 00 Greece

The Rhodes Acropolis dominated the western and highest part of the city. It was not fortified like most ancient acropoleis. It consisted of a monumental zone with Sanctuaries, large temples, public buildings and underground cult places. The buildings were built on stepped terraces supported by strong retaining walls. It was "full of fields and groves", in the words of the 2nd c. AD orator Ailios Aristides. The style of the Hellenistic architecture on the Acropolis of Rhodes was perfectly conveyed by the combination of natural beauty and artificial transformations. The buildings on the Acropolis date to the Hellenistic and Late Hellenistic periods (3rd-2nd c. BC).

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Acropolis of Lindos, Lindos 851 07 Greece

A steep footpath climbs the 116m-high rock above Lindos to reach the beautifully preserved Acropolis. First walled in the 6th century BC, the clifftop is now enclosed by battlements constructed by the Knights of St John. Once within, you’re confronted by stunning ancient remains that include a Temple to Athena Lindia and a 20-columned Hellenistic stoa. Silhouetted against the deep blue sky, the stark white columns are dazzling, while the long-range coastal views are out of this world.

Duration: 1 hour

Pass By: Faliraki Beach, 12 km South of Town, Faliraki 851 00 Greece

Faliraki is like one big funfair, with a vast, multiethnic crowd tirelessly in pursuit of pleasure, day and night & in the morning, on the famous beach with its striped umbrellas, at night in the narrow streets with all their bars, clubs, cafes, fast food chains and restaurands.
