Depart from the port for a visit to Lindos, an attractive village where pretty cobbled streets, a mountainous backdrop and an ancient acropolis add incomparable charm. Guests will walk up to the Acropolis of Lindos - a place where opulent temples dot the rugged landscape and battle-scarred fortresses appear like sentinels of the past. From this vantage point, one can enjoy spectacular backdrops of the parade of the whitewashed houses of Lindos, the white sands and the turquoise sea. Experience some medieval flavour at the Byzantine Castle, built by the Knights of St. John in 1317, and marvel at its overwhelming sculpture and grandeur of scale.
Driving back towards the city of Rhodes, somewhat inland is the valley of the butterflies. It is a thickly wooded area with a stream running down the side of a mountain forming small waterfalls and pools. Every year from June to September thousands of butterflies gather there to mate. The valley offers ideal conditions (coolness and moisture) for mating. Once they mate the females fly to others parts of the island where they lay their eggs and start their cycle of life once again. Steps, wooden bridges and paths take one to different parts of the valley.
We drive back towards the town of Rhodes and get off at the Gate D’Amboise from where you will begin your walking tour through the medieval city. Walk down the street of the knights (Ippoton), visit the Grand Masters’ Palace and end by the Hospital of the knights (no visit at the hospital of the knights only outside). After touring the old down drive back to the port
