... lend me your ears. Well, the geography might be a bit off, and the quote is paraphrased but perhaps similar words were spoken here, or similar plays acted out. This beautiful amphitheatre is on a hilltop in Rhodes town called Monte Smith (I didn't have much internet access so haven't been able to google it yet). The 26 rows of seats appear to be marble. We had to visit this, and the nearby ancient acropolis on our last full day on Rhodes. It was stunning, and my mind tried to imagine what things might have been like those many hundreds, or thousands, of years ago as I walked in places where people had also walked so long ago.
