I just lost the topic I had almost finished. Gremlins, I guess....
In an early posting, I said my husband and I were in Greece many years ago and loved Rhodes. Now my daughter and I are going there from Athens following a cruise. We would arrive in Rhodes very late on a June Saturday and plan to go as early as possible on Sunday morning to see the Lindos acropolis which I remember as having beautiful views.
There is a ferry in the afternoon at 5 p.m. arriving in Patmos at nearly midnight. We would very much like to go to the monasteries at Patmos on Monday, and my memory is that the taxi ride there was quick and that seeing the monasteries was fairly brief - probably less than 3 hours. There is a Dodekanisos ferry back to Rhodes at 1:30, arriving at 6:30 p.m. Our plan is to leave Rhodes on a very early flight to Athens Tuesday morning.
1) Aside from not being leisurely, do these plans seem reasonable timewise? We could spend Tuesday in Rhodes, but our preference is to head back to the US that day.
2) Can anyone recommend a b&b/hotel near the port at Patmos? We will probably travel with just backpacks and leave our luggage at the b&b in Rhodes (thanks to those who made suggestions to my earlier post) where we stay.
Thanks for any suggestions!
