The Acropolis of Lindos Jun 19, 2015
Lindos is a petite, really petite (like 3000 residents petite) town. It atracks a lot of tourists as it is this picturesque town with a small harbor and the acropolis.

The Acropolis is located on a 116m high rock. You can see it from afar. Wandering through the streets of Lindos you will come across the sign who tells you to go left (or right depending from which side you are coming ;) ). And then there are just a whole lot of steps, say about 500, to the top.

People with walking difficulties can ride a donkey to the acropolis.

I would, however, suggest to walk and stop every couple of steps just to admire the view. It really is a pretty sight!

The acropolis itself is divided into 4 different layers. The first layer shows 3 underground water reservoirs from the Byzantine period. On a rock, close to the stairs to the second level, you can see a relief of a ship

Going up the stairs to the second level you can see the Castle of the Cross Knights (Johannieters). On the third level you can find a arcade from the Hellenistic period. On the top level you can find the temple of Athina Lindia.

As you can read there are a lot of stairs you need to climb. Besides the stairs there are also some parts that just have slippery rocks so I would suggest wearing solid footwear. I would also suggest to bring some water as it can get hot as the acropolis is located at such a high point. If you can't take the heat that well I would go as early as possible.
