by lulu06

Hi everyone
I'm travelling to lindos for the first time in september with my boyf
and i wonderd if anyone could tell me the transfer time from rhodes to lindos. Some people have told me its 2hours and others have said it is only 45mins. Also i am staying at Marianthi studios and wonderd if anyone has stayed there and what it is like
Thanks :)

Can not be 2 hours !!! The total length of the island (from NE point to SW point) is about 75km. My estimation is that from Rhodes to Lindos is about 40km. I believe 45 mins is the correct answer.

hi

i came back from marianthi studios 2 weeks ago
our transfer time was 45 mins but i have had transfers which took a few hours
we were second drop off on coach so that was good
what time does your flight land
studios are in a great location just above beach and a few minutes walk into the village
they are right next to a bar called the rainbird which is great for breakfast or a cold drink after climbing up the stairs from the beach
have you been to lindos before?????

Hi Lulu,

Been on the transfer to lindos several times, unfortunately it does take about 2 hours because they drop off everyone else on the rest of the island first (saving the best place till last!).
When in Sept are you going? Myself and my friend are staying in the Marianthi apts 13th to 20th Sept, haven't used these ones before but in general traditional lindian apartments are VERY basic, don't expect any luxuries - usually not even a kettle - but it makes it a great traditional greek experience, and the whole village is just stunning and vibrant.

You'll have a great time, maybe see you there!

Jennie

Get a taxi for 45 euro each way. They are plentiful outside the airport doors-find out if anyone elso is travlling to Lindos and share to cut the cost. It will take anywhere from 30-40 mins. Nice big comfortable cars-the driver will tell you about the resort on the way. This is by far the most enjoyable way to travel down to Lindos.

Something else about Lindos.

Lindos is a car free town. Streets are really narrow for cars there. The only area where you can find cars and bikes is the town square. This is the only square in Lindos. Here you can find the tourist office, some cafes, restaurants and the taxi stop. The only transportation option in town are the donkeys. This is one of the ways to go to the Acropolis.

The town has a big choice of shops and restaurants. Some of these have a roof terrace.

Picturesque Shops II

by steventilly

As well as the lace and tableware the shops sell a whole host of other "giftware". It's what I describe as tat - decorative in a tacky sort of way and certainly not to my tatse. Interesting to look at, but not to buy.

Acropolis Steps

by sandysmith

Arriving at the Acropolis you pay your entrance fee - well you can't come all this way and not go in and for the 6 euros charge its well worth it..... then you climb yet more steps! The top of the steps reaches the main gate of the fortress which in turn leads to a dark vaulted hall,

Pool Bars

by sandysmith

By the bus stop on the main road above Lindos there are several bars/shop complexes and I noticed some evev had large pools attached to them which could be used. Handy if you just want to stay up here and not swim in the sea. Notice the new church which is being built just by here too - larger than any of he others in Lindos.

Beautiful Lindos

by Balam

The Town of Lindos was founded by the Dorians who led by King Tlepolemus of Rhodes arrived in around the 10th century BC. Lindos became one of six Dorian cities in the area. The eastern location of Rhodes made it a natural meeting place between the Greeks and the Phoenicians thus by the 8th century Lindos had become a major trading centre but its importance declined after the city of Rhodes was founded in the late 5th century.

Lindos is dominated by the 14th century fortress built by the Knights of St John to defend the island against the Ottomans. The fortress partly overlays the acropolis which was constructed In classical times, the acropolis of Lindos was dominated by the massive temple of Athena Lindia which was in its final phase and at its height in around 300 BC.
In Hellenistic and Roman times the temple precinct grew as more buildings were added until in early mediaeval times the buildings fell into disuse.

The beauty of Lindos is due to its location on the slope of the hill and dominated by the acropolis overlooking the picturesque bay where it is said St Paul landed to preach Christianity, but also to the village itself which built on the hillside with whitewashed houses and courtyards, narrow alley ways and Byzantine, Medieval European, Arab and Rhodian architecture.

I like to go to Lindos at least once while I’m on Rhodes, just to climb to the top of the Acropolis and look at the great views. Last time I went to Rhodes (2006) the Acropolis was still undergoing a restoration program which had been undergoing for a few years.

On our visit in 2010 a lot of work had been done and the Acropolis is looking really good
