Some life-changing trips are about visiting an iconic place in person. Others make their impact through authentic experiences, local connections, and cultural insights.
When you bump into a temple dedicated to goddess Athena while strolling the magical ancient village of Lindos, it is no ordinary summer vacation. And the extraordinary is what visiting Rhodes is all about. Imagine the towering Acropolis radiant on the cypress-silvered hill and the sugar-cube houses of the whitewashed town tumbling below it towards the aquamarine bay—life as you know it seems very far away.
Pebbled streets, stone-built mansions, Byzantine churches and decorated archways leading to patios encapsulate the essence of Lindos. Entering the town itself, you’ll find yourself in a mystical warren of hidden alleys covered in bougainvillea flowers, packed with the ornate houses of long-vanished sea captains proudly overlooking the archipelagos. The scent of orange and lemon blossoms is in the air and it feels like Spring has nested under every stone of the island.
Underneath the ancient Acropolis which bears silent witness to Líndos’ glorious past, there is a spectacular natural swimming pool surrounded by rocky cliffs, the St Paul’s beach next to the homonymous, picturesque chapel which is extremely popular for weddings. Pallas, to the north, is a sandy spot with a jetty where you can hop on a glass-bottomed boat.
If you want to make your memories from Lindos last forever, you shall discover the local culture through lovely silver, turquoise or amber jewelry, handmade leather sandals, handbags, lace or ceramics. Another element of Lindos’ culture is the donkey riding for the restless individuals who wish to discover the labyrinth of narrow alleyways which were deliberately designed to escape from pirates. Adventurous days follow tranquil nights at the most stimulating town of Rhodes.
