Boat trip to Lindos

Sunday, July 8.
Lindos, a striking jewel on the east

acropolis of ancient Greece, second only to the acropolis of
Athens, Lindos takes its visitors to a trip through time. The
hellenistic staircase, the remnants of a roman temple and the
castle of the Knights of St John all speak of a town with a
history as breathtaking as the view of the endless blue sea
The narrow cobbled streets take you to the elegant town, filled

beach on the rim of Lindos invites you to try some of the
warmest waters in the Mediterranean.
