Rhodes day 6- Lindos visit

 Lindos visit

On our penultimate day on Rhodes we took a trip to Lindos by mini bus (company Manos going)- very quick and the driver provided plenty of information on the drive.

It was very hot at the site and the shops etcetera quite busy- the trip describes Lindos as  one of the most popular and picturesque villages of Rhodes island.

'During the ancient times Lindos was the major " maritime power in the Aegean Now it has only 700 inhabitants, but thousands of visitors daily. Lindos will give you the feel­ing that you are walking into a painting with its labyrinth of narrow cobbled streets.'

The Acropolis there is impressive.

The attitude to what are very historic remains is quite 'relaxed' and little is prohibited or protected - plenty of 'odd' renovation (particularly it seems by the Italians) over the years too - I would say more generally that Rhodes does not take enough care more generally clearing litter and so on.
