Our first stop on our "acropolis" tour was a three-column ruin on top of a very windy hill.

The Rotterdam is really a lot further away than it looks, thanks to the telephoto lens.

I was thinking that the acropolis left something to be desired, but we went next to Lindos, and that was beautiful. I took so many pictures that this is a small selection:

This is the view from the ruins. It is where St Paul is reported to have landed.


After a visit to a ceramics factory, we were taken on a tour of old Rhodes, and had pointed out to us where the Colossus stood - at the end of an old street, not across the bay, according to our guide.

A couple of scenes from the old town.
