Perched atop a rocky hill, Acropolis of Lindos represents natural citadel fortified over the centuries by the Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, and the Ottomans. Offering sweeping views of a small town's picturesque harbor, this important archaeological site contains remains of several ancient structures, the most notable of which is a Doric temple dedicated to the goddess Athena and dated to about 300 BCE. A monumental medieval wall surrounds this age-old temple and fortifications built by the Crusaders in the 14th century. The climb up to these ancient ruins can be quite arduous; you can make it a bit easier by arranging for a donkey ride up to the top.

Acropolis of Lindos Reviews
But it offers nice views of Lindos and the sea. A bit of a hike but paths are well marked. Don’t think I’d want to do it in the heat of summer. more »
well worth the effort of the climb. a little expensive to get in but there is plenty to see and the views are great. All in all worth the money and the effort. more »
Beautiful city, small, white, relaxing. Try to visit it when it's not so hot and you would enjoy it. Walk through the small street discovering their labyrinth. Maybe use donkey taxi to visit acropol. I personally prefer not to use donkeys. Still consider the weather. If it's too hot it would be hard
Really great place of ancient history of Greece. It is relatively easy to access the site, although there are some slippery steep places along the way. If you try to climb there in the middle of the summer day, bottle of drinking water is a must!
