Our budget cruise had a full day stop on Rhodes Island. The island is certainly a favourite of mine. The old city is beautiful, but with a whole day, a trip to Lindos is a highlight. The taxi fare is astronomical, so we asked around a little and found the public bus stop. The bus was a unique insight into the life of those living on Rhodes, and though it is a long hour and a half ride, I would recommend it. Lindos is a traditional Mediterranean town built down the side of a hill on the seaside. The top of the hill is the beautiful Acropolis of Lindos, towering above the ocean. To get up there, we paid the 5 euro for the donkey ride, and took a stroll along a side path to get a different view on the way down. The visit was extremely memorable.
