To get to the Acropolis, you need to overcome a long ladder. There is another way - you can ride on a donkey to the top of the hill.

When you reach the fortifications built by the Knights of the Order of St. John, pay attention to the rock on which is carved the image of an ancient ship. Then go up the stairs to the Palace of the Grand Masters.

It looks exactly the way we envision the ancient ruins of temples: the tall white columns, glittering in the sun. Here you can make spectacular photos and enjoy the view over the lagoon of Lindos.
