Duration 4 hours
This is a privately with an english speaking driver tour exploring the Island of Santorini visiting the Akrotiri Excavations, a prehistoric Bronze Age city, frozen in time by ash that fell during the Minoan volcanic eruption 3.600 years ago. Some speculate that this is the origin of Atlantis, a mythical city.
Admire the elaborate drainage system, the sophisticated multi-storied buildings, and their magnificent wall paintings and excavated furniture and vessels that show the former settlements great prosperity.
Then we will head to admire the Red beach. The red layer of sand at the Red Beach created a spectacular sight! Take the spectacular views of the Aegean Sea and the nearby islands. Enjoy an optional lunch of fish or seaside restaurant.
Continue through the beautiful Santorini countryside to Pyrgos village and the Monastery, Imerovigli Scaros and the village of Oia. Built on the northern part of the caldera rim, Oia is the most photographed place in Santorini and place where many artists have found their inspiration. It’s beauty, the traditional architecture, and the amazing sunset.
Enjoy the stunning views of the caldera, where many dwellings are built into niches of the volcanic rock. You’ll also have a panoramic view of the rest of Santorini and the Aegean Sea.
