Honestly, this excursion is one of the best when you are in Rhodes, once you reach Lindos you will be mesmerized by the beauty that dominates it!
Once you spend some time in the village of Lindos and wander around its narrow streets you can follow the road that leads to the Acropolis of Lindos, with ancient walls, battlements, a temple dedicated to Athena Lindia and a Hellenistic stoa.
The view from 116 metres high will overwhelm you and you will truly feel like you have travelled back in time!
There are many famous beaches in Rhodes but Agios Pavlos beach is unique!
It is a small bay in Lindos in a calm and serene environment, in the summer more people visit it but it still offers the ultimate in relaxation.
Perched on top of a rocky hill, Moni Tsampika is a Byzantine church that can only be reached by climbing the 350 steps you’ll find halfway up the hill.
Be sure to plan your visit for sunset, as the views of the sea, beaches and villages dotted around the island are best when the sky turns pink.
A visit to the monastery of Panagia Tsampika is an experience that anyone in Rhodes should have!
Once you reach the beach in Rhodes town, you will see a large concrete diving board in the middle of the ocean. Everyone, from kids to adults, climb the steps and jump off the platform all day long.
Just be careful, it’s a lot higher than it looks!
If you like nature outings and walks then the Seven Springs is a place that will enchant you. A natural landscape with running waters and springs amidst the greenery.
The Seven Wells are easily considered one of the most romantic places on the island of Rhodes. It is ideally located between Kolymbia and Archipolis. The whole area has tranquility written all over it and is filled with lush green forests.
If you are visiting the Seven Springs for the first time and you are not claustrophobic then we recommend you to cross the 1km long tunnel. Which leads to the sparkling lake!
Greek cuisine is rich in authentic flavours and aromas!
It has a history of about 4000 years, with special characteristics based on pure and unique quality products of the Greek land. Its gastronomic secrets are: quality fresh ingredients, delicate use of aromatics, the famous Greek olive oil and simplicity.
We suggest you try the traditional Pitaroudia!
Unlike the small chickpea fries the size of a meatball in other regions of Greece and certainly a far cry from Egyptian falafel, the Rhodian version calls for large, thick stuffed pies.
They are found, in various versions, all over the island. Chickpea pie is by far the national dish of Rhodes.
