Lindos is a lovely village with a maze of streets,The Acropolis sitting high above looking down on the shops, restaurants many with roof top views over Lindos which was stunning.Donkeys feature a lot in the village with trips to The Acropolis and to the beach.Lindos is a very friendly village,and very safe.Lindos is sited at the bottom of a hill so going down is easy but going up can be a trek in 30c+. At the entrance to the village is a roundabout of sorts with a tree in the middle just sit under the tree and soak up the atmosphere and the views of the bay.Well worth a visit if in Rhodes.

Lindos village is very authentic. Narrow alleyways with lots of shops, cafes, bars and tavernas. You can eat freshly made pancakes and drink freshly squeezed orange juice. Colourful scarves and bags are hung up for sale. In the evening everyone is dining on the terraces and roof tops. The Greek food is well priced and excellent quality. The waiters and service is excellent.

hi agree with steven m from pool just returned from faliraki had a day at lindos been before stunning place but just could stand to see them little donkeys going up and down to the accoropalis i know its a living for the people that owns them but WHY do they have to put obease lazy tourists on them they are lovely to see but please CHILDREN ONLY . we saw the parents getting on feet nearly touching the floor then the child sat on the parents lap in one part it is quite steep up some steps and the two donkeys with adults on were really struggling to get up the steps but they did not have much choice with a stick poking up there back sides
the temprature was 40 plus i know they say they are beasts of burden but its not right
them going up and down like they were as soon as they were at the top because there was so many people one bloke litterally ran these two donkeys back down the donkey path as fast as he could so he could get back down the bottom to bring them back up again with new people on one of the donkeys was reluctant to jump down off the steps to go down
and the bloke was really shouting at it .... as i say the donkeys are there for a living
and they are part of the lindos tradition but please CHILDREN ONLY
been to lindos 3 times now and it seems to have got worse more donkeys more BIG
PEOPLE we love lindos and we buy and support the town folk but this time it did upset me seeing this going on as with other people

A maze of little streets and alleyways, buy as you go because you will never find the shops again lots of lovely restaurants, no pressure,felt safe. a good place to wander before dinner, taxi up the hill back to our hotel (Lindos View )

When we were in Rhodes Lindos was one of the place we thought we mite like to see if time allowed. There was a I/2 day tour we looked at but as it turned out we missed by one day. This only meant we had to take the city bus into Rhodos (Rhodes) then a bus out to Lindos. From where the bus stops on the highway you walk gown hill about 1/2 mile to the village of Lindos. Access to the Acropolis of Lindos is through a maze of vendors all up hill and stairs to the site. There is the option of taking a mule ride up which some choose ( felt sorry for the animals). Once you arrive at the site there is a small fee to enter but worth the cost as the view alone is worth it. The site is not easy to walk about and great care is required to ensure no injury. One hour here will suffice to see what there is, but do not rush to leave the area, stop for lunch as the food is reasonable and tasty. We made this a 1/2 day adventure and are happy we did so fun to do and see.
