Best of Lindos and Rhodes
Step back into time as you walk in the footsteps of history and explore the remarkable Grecian towns of Lindos and Rhodes. Your journey of discovery will take you along breathtaking coastlines and through small, quaint villages as you make your way to these ancient cities.
When you first catch a glimpse of the ancient, unbelievably scenic Lindos, it will take your breath. Stand in the 535 feet tall Acropolis and savor stunning views of the entire village as it tumbles below to the aquamarine sea. As you enter the town you'll find yourself in a magical place of hidden alleyways where stacked, ornate houses of long-ago sea captains now are occupied with tantalizing tavernas, atmospheric bars and the coolest cafes. Be sure to bring your camera to capture shots of the medieval castle, white-washed houses, colorful courtyards and Lindos' famous mosaics. While here you will also visit the Byzantine Church of the Ascension and enjoy free time to explore the area on your own. This walking tour will also take you down the Street of the Knights flanked by inns that were once occupied by the Crusaders. At the bottom of the street you will reach the 14th century Knights Hospital-turned-Archaeological Museum.
Travel next to Rhodes where you will watch ceramics being carefully crafted from the world-renowned Rhodes potters. The island is known for its tradition in pottery and ceramics, as there are documents stating that clay bricks from the island of Rhodes were used in construction of the dome of "Agia Sofia" Byzantine church in Constantinople. A quick ride up to Monte Smith will reward you will panoramic views of the town and Aegean Sea. Walk through the Gate d'Amboise in the city's medieval walls to see and explore the 14th century Grand Master's Palace.
