I wasn't overall keen to go in at the price per person they charge. I was wrong the views from here are amazing. A must see.

Lindos is a very pretty spot with a cute town and the acropolis perched on the top overlooking the sea, definitely worth a visit & you could stay down on the beach, 45 min drive from Rhodes

We went to Lindos for day, not on a coach trip just drove ourselves and parking free at the top of the hill. We were there by 11am and it was already heaving with thousands of tourists, but we battled through the crowds and walked through the lanes, past the hundreds of shops selling mostly the same stuff and made it up the climb to the Acropolis. It was worth the hot climb. Amazing place. The views from the top were over the town and the coastline. Beautiful!! We came down the pathway taken by those poor donkeys. Please please please if you do go, then don’t be tempted to get a ride on these sad, overworked, underwatered poor little donkeys. How cruel!!! Watching overweight people, too large to walk up the hill themselves, happy for these sad little animals to take the strain. I can’t stress how much it upset us to see this cruel cruel tourist trap!! They charge tourists to get them up the top, the donkeys have no shade and no water (it was about 30degrees) and then they are run back down the path to get back down only to have another large person put into their little backs and for the process to start again. It’s CRUEL CRUEL!!! Please don’t do it. Just enjoy the walk yourself. Sorry for the rant!!

It is quite a climb but well worth it and the entrance fee. The donkeys are lovely but we always worry about their health and the way they are looked after so decided to walk instead. It's about 15 minutes and it is then a further 5 minutes to the very top after paying the entrance fee. The views are worth the effort but it is perhaps better to visit later in the day after the coach trips have left and everything quietens down.

Epic. Just epic. Acropolis is like Kings Landing in real life. I can imagine myself fighting a Dragon on that castle.
