Well, are you going to tell everybody where it is John?

(I was just going to post the above Lydia when you beat me to it. I will leave it for John to tell you.)

Monte Smith on the outskirts of Rhodes Town.

"On the acropolis you'll find the remains of the Temples of Zeus and
Athena and the partly-restored Temple of Apollo. Below is the restored
stadium, which is still used for performances"

It is named after the Napoleonic era British Admiral - William Sidney Smith. I think the monte "bit" is a linguistic approximation for mount or hill.

This particular island may be regarded, in some ways, as two islands joined by a narrow strip of land. On ancient times the two were known as and (both 8 letters).

During the Byzantine era it was frequently raided by pirates and fell into decline but it sprang to life at the beginning of the revolution and took an active part.

A wild guess, didn't count the dashes! Don't know what the missing words are though other than possibly bars and beach.
