Discover the village of Lindos and walk to the summit of the Acropolis and see the remains of past civilisations. These include the 4th century BC Doric Temple of Athena Lindia, a Byzantine church and the fortifications of the Knights. The panoramic view will showcase St Pauls Bay and the old whitewashed houses in the narrow streets of the village. Spend some free time browsing the shops and soaking up the atmosphere.
Continue onto the popular Tsambika beach, washed by the clear waters of the Aegean to enjoy approximately three hours on the beach. Relax, swim in the sea or find a suitable spot to have luncheon from the choice of cafeterias and tavernas.
On the scenic drive back to Rhodes a stop will be made at Monte Smith to capture the panoramic sight of the Old and New town of Rhodes. Upon arrival at Rhodes town embark on a guided walking tour taking you along the stone paved lanes past medieval structures, each recalling the Knights of St John and their Ottoman conquerors.
BEACH/WATER RELATED EXCURSIONS
For any excursion involving water, guests are reminded to exercise particular care. Alcohol and eating a full meal should be avoided before swimming. If buoyancy aids are provided for an activity they must be worn at all times. You should bear in mind that the sea is unpredictable. Lifeguards are unlikely to be present and there may not be a flag system to indicate whether or not it is safe to go in the water. In addition, beach activities may not be supervised or accompanied and so you should take care to satisfy yourself as to the safety of the beach and/or the sea at the time of your excursion.
Please exercise caution when entering the sea as the seabed and aquatic environment is capable of springing surprises and we have not inspected the beach or seabed for its safety. Children must be supervised by you at all times near water. All activities on the beach, water and in the sea are undertaken at your own risk. You’ll need to take swimwear, a towel, sunscreen and flat shoes that can be worn in the water.
P&O Cruises will arrange for the excursions to be performed by the relevant excursion provider. P&O Cruises does not provide or supply the excursion services.
