Rhodes - 1/2 Day Lindos Excursion
The excursion includes licensed Guides and deluxe motor coaches and commences with a one-hour scenic drive along the East Coast of the Island, which passes through different landscapes and many villages. At the village of Archangelos, the guests will enjoy a visit to a pottery factory, for a demonstration of handmade pottery being crafted at a Potter’s wheel. At Lindos the ‘Jewel of the Island’ with the most attractive village on Rhodes, the guests will enjoy a guided visit of the Acropolis, which includes the Great Stoa, the Temple of Athena Lindia of the 4th century BC, the ancient theatre and the few remains of the temple of Dionysus.
The view from the rock of the Acropolis, which rises shear 115m above the sea, is unique. The guided visit continues through the picturesque medieval village, built amphitheatrically around the foot of the steep rock leading to the acropolis.
The houses with their traditional architecture and decorated floors, many dating back to the 15th and 16th centuries, leaves one with a feeling of wonder. The final visit is to 15th century medieval church dedicated to the Virgin Mary, with its octagonal dome, unusual belfry, carved iconostasis and 17th century wall paintings (guiding inside the church is not allowed).
