Your licensed, very knowledgeable guide, will help you get the most of your free time off your cruiseship. Experience the Medieval Lindos village below before you start your walk up the 115 M height to the Lindo Acropolis. Magnificent views, the ancient theatre, learning about St. John's importance are just a few things to get you started.
