Lindos, Rhodes

A medieval settlement on the island of Rhodes, Lindos provides a mix of ancient history and modern attractions.
Visiting Agathi Beach and Lindos beach will get you outdoors. Your inner history buff will appreciate Medieval City and Acropolis of Lindos. Change things up with these side-trips from Lindos: Palace of Grand Master of Knights (in Rhodes Town) and Anthony Quinn Bay (in Faliraki). There's still lots to do: see the interesting displays at Tsambika Byzantine Museum and enjoy the sand and surf at St Pauls Bay.

To find traveler tips, more things to do, where to stay, and tourist information, refer to the Lindos sightseeing planner.

Use the Route module to find suitable travel options from Chicago, USA to Lindos. The time zone difference when traveling from Chicago to Lindos is 8 hours. Plan for a bit warmer nights when traveling from Chicago in July since evenings lows in Lindos dip to 75°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 11th (Tue) so you can travel to Karpathos.

Karpathos

Known largely for its secluded coves and untamed mountains, rugged Karpathos reputedly remains one of the last truly authentic Greek islands.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Agios Nikolaos Beach and Apela Beach. Visit Damatria Beach and Amoopi Beach for some beach relaxation. When in Karpathos, make a side trip to see Lefkos Beach in Lefkos, approximately 56 minutes away. The adventure continues: enjoy the sand and surf at Diakoftis Beach, stroll through Diakofti Beach, and indulge your taste buds at En Plo.

To see photos, reviews, maps, and more tourist information, go to the Karpathos online itinerary creator.

Getting from Lindos to Karpathos by combination of bus and flight takes about 4 hours. Other options: do a combination of taxi and car ferry. Expect a daytime high around 84°F in July, and nighttime lows around 74°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 17th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
