Reasons for trip

Sited on the headland above the village lies the Acropolis and fortess of Lindos, 5000 years of history in one place is for me and I found the whole experience amazing. Access to the Acropolis is via a fairly steep ramp style footpath to the gates where there is a 6eu entry fee, free for small children. An alternate is taking a donkey ride up there through the streets of Lindos for 5eu, the donkeys look worn out, the streets are narrow and we saw people catching legs between the Donkey and house walls, some of the owners would also leave the donkeys and wander off at times, they do walk close to the edge of a steep slope you wouldn't want to fall down too. When you get into the acropolis you need to be aware that there are no fences around the parapets in places and the falls are a long way down! The views are lovely. The main draw back I found was the huge crane in the lower part of the fortress and a metal building where reconstruction is ongoing. I would also suggest going late on or early before the hordes descend. Its a shame that there isn't a museum there at the moment showing the site in its various stages over the years, there are no toilet facillities on site, there is an overpriced cafe outside the gates with a toilet for customers. Lindos Village is nice, it is however a tourist trap with tourist prices and spoilt by tat shops which is a shame, there is a nice beach on the bay with changing rooms and beach side showers, if you use the bus to get here make sure you know the times for returning, the tickets need to be pre purchased at the booth at the top of the road and they are packed! This site isn't really ideal for those with poor mobility as there are lots of steps and narrow pathways. Lindos doesn't have the breeze much of Rhodes has and feels much hotter as a result.
