How to ride on a donkey on Rhodes
If you want to reach the Lindos Acropolis, you need to be ready to overcome a long ladder. But you can use another way. Next to the bus stop, near the stairs are the owners of the donkeys, here you can rent one of the donkeys, and on it, you will reach the top of the mountain.

If you want to please the donkey for the work, you can bring some yummy for it, like apple, carrot or a piece of pumpkin. The donkey would be very grateful.

Guest18 July 2019We are not all fat, I have a lung problem, should that exclude me from seeing this beautiful site
Guest28 June 2019Stupid idiots making money with poor animals.
People who are too fat for walking 10 Minutes should stay at home.
Guest23 June 2019Disgusting practice! Should be ashamed of using these animals for ADULTS to ride on! Any adult on them should be ashamed of themselves!
Guest06 February 2019We visited the acropolis in October, 2018. We took advantage of the donkey ride, the owner of which hummed and sang to his animals. The view was spectacular. We didn’t have a guide which was to our disadvantage. A more detailed pamphlet would have given us greater insight into the origin of the structures. An employee became very upset when I took a picture of my husband standing on a rock which had apparently been a part of an ancient building. She begged us to delete all photos taken there and wanted to confiscate my IPad. She said her job was on the line if I posted the photo. She watched as I deleted the pictures and I assured her I didn’t know how to retrieve them, which is the absolute truth. It was quite a scene and could have been avoided had we known what is off limits ! Otherwise, our time in Lindos was truly a highlight of our Mediterranean tour. Lindos and Rhodes - very highly recommended as ‘must see’ places.!
