Basking in more hours of sunshine than any other Greek island, Rhodes is
loved for its fascinating past, not to mention its glittering sandy
Venture inside the ancient walls of Rhodes' citadel to discover the Medieval city left behind by the Knights of St John. Marvel at the mighty Palace of the Grand Masters, a gigantic fortress which dominates the old town, and call in at the 15th-century Hospital of the Knights, now a great archaeological museum.
Walking (30 minutes) through the walled old town or along the harbor front (10 minutes), you will arrive at Rimini Square, from where buses and taxi's depart for Lindos. Taxis have a fixed rate of 55 euro one way, buses are very cheap. Lindos is about an hour away.
In town there is a hop on/off bus, leaving at 10 am, at hourly intervals from the Tourist Harbor (Cruise terminal), 12 Euro.
There is also a little tourist train going around Rhodes Town, however there is no transportation in the pretty Old Town which is only accessible on foot.
It pays to compare your cruise line shore excursions here.
Lindos with its stunningly preserved acropolis and UNESCO-protected status make this trip a must-do excursion. You'll also enjoy Faliraki and all it has to offer.
