Rhodes Acropolis

The Acropolis of Rhodes dominates the western and highest part of the city. It was not fortified like most ancient acropoleis. The sight includes – monumental zone with Sanctuaries, large temples, public buildings and underground cult places. The buildings were built on stepped terraces supported by strong retaining walls. It was “full of fields and groves”, in the words of the 2nd c. AD orator Ailios Aristides. The style of the Hellenistic architecture on the Acropolis of Rhodes was perfectly conveyed by the combination of natural beauty and artificial transformations. The buildings on the Acropolis date to the Hellenistic and Late Hellenistic periods (3rd-2nd c. BC).

The most important monuments in the archaeological zone are the:

Temple of Athena Polias and Zeus Polieus

It is found on the northern edge of the Acropolis and orientated E-W. Four oversize column drums and parts of a capital and architrave still to be seen on the site are an indication of its original monumental character. This was where the Rhodians kept the texts of their treaties with other states. The temple stood in a larger temenos bounded by a stoa on the east.

Temple of Pythian Apollo

This stands on the southern part of the hill, on the west side of a large rectangular terrace. It is orientated E-W. It was a peripteral temple, but smaller than that of Athena and Zeus. Part of the NE side had been restored with four columns and part of the architrave.

Stadium

The Stadium, with an N-S orientation, is on the SE side of the hill; it was excavated and restored by the Italians. It was one stadion in length, namely 600 feet or 210 meters. The authentic original surviving parts are the sphendone (rounded end with turning post), proedries (seats of officials) and some of the lower seats in the auditorium. Also preserved is the starting mechanism for the athletes.

Amphitheater 

Northwest of the Stadium is a small restored marble Amphitheater. It held some 800 spectators and is thought to have been used either for musical events or for attending lessons in rhetoric given by famous Rhodian orators.

Excellent Tour of Rhodes with Rhodes Taxi Tours We spent a very enjoyable day exploring the island of Rhodes with Rhodes Taxi Tours. Our driver Nicholas was very friendly and knowledgeable. Our tour included the historic district of the city of Rhodes, the scenic viewpoints and historic sites of the island, and we drove to the town of Lindos so we could explore the amazing acropolis. Nicholas took us to a ceramic workshop that has been run by a family of artists for generations. Our tour lasted about five hours, but Nicholas was open to customizing the itinerary. We only had one day on Rhodes, and we will likely never have an opportunity to return. Our tour with Rhodes Taxi Tours was definitely the best way to get a good overview of this beautiful island in the short time we were there.

What a great way to spend the day in Rhodes We were picked up right at the cruise ship and whisked off to see the beautiful sites of Rhodes. We had a fantastic lunch sea side and lovely swim in a beautiful bay. We met many wonderful locals and bought beautiful pottery from a lovely family with a sweet French bulldog. Could not have asked for a better day.

A friendly fun day! Met from our Cruise Ship by Nico who rapidly became a friend. His love of his native island was evident in every stop we made and the chats we had, we learned so much. All four of us had a fantastic day in the company of this delightful man, even the downpour at Lindos did not dampen our spirits! We will long remember our brief stay on Rhodes and the luxury tour with Nico!

Daytrip to Butterfly valley and Lindos We booked a day trip (5 hours) via Rhodes Taxi Tours. The taxi picked us up directly in front of the hotel. Our driver was Nicholas. He was a very friendly and professional driver! He was able to tell us about the history and sights of the island. He was flexible as a driver. It was easy for us to reach the sights we wanted and the driver knew well what to do to save time. We highly recommend Rhodes Taxi tours and special thanks to Nicholas. This trip was one of the highlights of our holiday and exceeded our expectations.

Fabulous day touring Rhodes with Nikos Had a brilliant day touring Rhodes with our driver Nikos. Nikos was polite, punctual, and passionate about Rhodes. He was very flexible regarding our itinerary for the day, and took us to Lindos and the Acropolis, beach for swimming, fabulous Greek Taverna by the seaside for lunch, pottery workshop and a 1760 monastery.

Fantastic half day! What a fabulous day we had with Nicholas, from our greeting by the ship to our farewells outside the Old Town, it was brilliant. Not only did we get to see a lot of the island and some of the best sites ( and sights!) but it was fascinating to talk to such an enthusiastic islander. Our journey to Lindos was full of stories of Nicholas's life and "Grandpappy's weather forecasting". If ever we return to Rhodes we'll be sure to get in touch, can't recommend this enough! Efcharisto, Nicholas!
