does anyone know how much a taxi costs from Lindos to the airport
Re: taxi prices
It's a long road, maybe its better ( cheaper) to take the bus ??
You can change busses at Rhodos-town. maria
Re: taxi prices
Taxis cost about 45 euro each way. It takes about 40 mins (although I have had some white knuckle journeys in less!). Do not pre book through a tour agent as the taxi's are plentyful outside the airport doors. Taxi prices are fixed on Rhodes-there will be a posting of all fares at the taxi rank.
I have been to Lindos many times-you will love it. Have fun.
Travel Tips for Lindos
View of Lindos
Lindos is for most visitors the most impressive archaeological site on Rhodes. Here the dramatic natural landscape is enhanced by the picturesque quality of the more modern town.
A road leads high up to the acropolis, and if you wish to avoid the tiring climb you can hire a donkey at the entrance of the town. The medieval walls are the first ruins you will encounter, fortifications built by the Crusaders (early 14th century) on the remains of earlier defenses, both Byzantine and ancient. There are a few of towers along the medieval walls, which follow the natural contours of the high ground. Acropolis of Lindos is the most important archaeological monuments at the acropolis, but interesting ruins are scattered at various points within the town and just outside it as well.
Church of St Mary
There are several churches in Lindos but the main one is the Panagai - Church of St Mary - also known as Church of the Assumption of our Lady. Its hemmed in by the narrow streets in the centre of the village - the best view to fully appreciate it is from above at the acropolis, its easily picked out with its distinctive red tiled roof and bell tower.
Be careful on some of the sidestreet. They are narrow and there's barely room for people to pass, let alone these fellows. Oh, and watch where you put your feet too, there's some one who follows along to clean up the Donkey's calling cards, but he may not have been down yet!
A memorial statue of Kleoboulos can be seen on the top road of Lindos - near where the bus stops. Kleoboulos, an ancientr ruler of Lindos was considered to be one of the seven wise men of Greece, he also phrased the saying ''moderation in all things. Now if I had just shifted my angle slightly there would be a better view of his purported tomb behind him :-S
You can get some great views from on top of the various roof bars and tavernas around Lindos. This view is from Ceasar's (a taverna with a rooftop swimming pool!). It's right below the Acropolis and you can get a table with a lovely view back up to it.
