Ancient and exquisite, it's no wonder Lindos is one of Greece's most photographed towns. Filled with Byzantine architecture, churches and whitewashed buildings speckling the hillside, the town spreads down to twin bays with dazzling blue waters. The jewel in its crown is the acropolis, more than 100 metres above the rest of Lindos, overlooking its historic sites, lively tavernas and beaches.
Things to do
There’s plenty of thing to keep you busy on holiday, whether you want to soak up the sunshine or explore historic landmarks. Beyond the stunning beaches, you’ll discover a bustling atmosphere as you stroll through Lindos’ narrow alleys and cobbled streets, lined with beautiful Byzantine architecture and charming Greek tavernas. It’s well worth trekking up the hill to see the 4th century acropolis (one of the most famous sights on the island), and when you get there you’ll be rewarded with spectacular views over the bay. After a day’s exploring, you’ll be ready for a bite to eat; there’s a lovely atmosphere in the old town, which is brimming with tavernas and outdoor terraces.
May and June, which are slightly cooler but still with plenty of sunshine.
