Rhodes island is full of surprises—beautiful bays, hidden natural beauties, scenic landscapes and stunning country side. It is a wonderful chance to see both sides of the island in one day! After visiting Lindos village, you will be pleased to discover the West coast – full of greenery and nature treasures!
It will take us approx.1hour to reach LINDOS. On the way you will learn about places we will pass by and different aspects of today’s life! A stop at the top of the hill to make photos of the village and the famous St. PAUL’S BAY is a must! After you will have some free time to have a nice walk through the village—to visit the ACROPOLIS of Lindos or stroll through the labyrinth-like narrow streets for sight-seeing and souvenir shopping.
After we will continue our tour and drive to the CENTRAL PART of the island reaching the village of ELEOUSA. It is famous for its Italian heritage gained during the years of Italian dictatorship. We will stop at the FOUNTAIN of Eleousa to enjoy calm scenery and to feed the little fish - Gizani that lives only in sweet waters. Eleousa has also nice village taverns where to stop for a light lunch and taste local specialties. We will then cross the island and drive until the WEST COAST. Depending on your interests, we will visit either the famous Valley of the BUTTERFLIES where you will witness the rare type of the Jersey Tiger (Kalimorphous, Panaxia, Quatripunktaria), a nocturnal moth, in their natural biotope—little LAKES decorated by water-lilies, narrow rock walkways, WATERFALLS, wooden rustic bridges and romantic paths across the forest (suggested from June-September).
Or you can choose to drive up the FILERIMOS mount - once hosting the Ancient Ialyssos city-state. Explore ruins of the Ancient city-state and the15th century MONASTERY, make pictures of hundreds of colourful PEACOCKS and breath-taking views from the enormous imposing CROSS!
