  • Lindos Tour

    The island of Rhodes has been a significant cultural, religious and military crossroads throughout history and nowhere is this more evident than on the Acropolis of Lindos. Located on the eastern coast of the island, Lindos was founded by the Dorians who arrived around the 10th century BC. In ancient times, the city became a natural meeting place between the Greeks and the Phoenicians and by the 8th century it was a major trading center. Continuously fortified, and improved over the centuries by various rulers, Lindos has characteristics from the Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, the Knights of St John, and the Ottomans – they all have shaped the magnificent site we see today. Together with your True Greece guide explore the striking ruins and learn about the fascinating history of this impressive fortress.
