If you are headed for a Mediterranean cruise and Rhodes town is one of your ports of call, you must be wondering how to plan your time-limited day in port.
Apart from Rhodes Old town and its numerous sights, museums & mysterious streets which can easily keep you busy for the whole day, there are also the Rhodes beaches to enjoy and the little quaint town of Lindos on the eastern side of the island to see.
Here's some photos from one of our visits to Rhodes that might inspire you to visit this little town.
Lindos town is a nice mixture of typical Greek white washed houses and mysterious medieval streets and houses. This is the view of the town from the Lindos Acropolis.
View of Saint Paul's Bay on the other side of Lindos and the Acropolis. This is where the Apostle took shelter during his travels. If you are here with a taxi or a rental car, you can always stop by for a little dip before you return to Rhodes town or the cruise ship dock.
