Tour Itinerary

Fist of all, you can visit the Ancient site of Akrotiri, also known as the “Minoan Pompeii”, which was destroyed and covered by the ashes of an enormous volcanic eruption in 1450 BC. The ancient Minoan city was discovered in 1967 nearby the homonymous modern village of Akrotiri; it was found remarkably well-preserved. Pottery, furniture, advanced drainage systems and three-story buildings have been discovered at the site. Many believe the disaster and the site itself are connected to the inspirational Plato’s story of Atlantis. Visitors are welcome to explore the archaeological site of Akrotiri at their own pace. An average visit can take 30 minutes. Leaving the Akrotiri excavations, you will continue to the most famous and beautiful beaches of Santorini. Explore the Red Beach located only some steps away from the ancient site of Akrotiri. The Red Beach is well known for the unique color of the sand and the hill behind it. The soaring red lava cliffs which drop right in the sandy shore and into the crystal clear blue sea make a majestic, breathtaking landscape.

Next, you are off to feel the sand beneath your feet as you visit the famous Black Beach, on the Southeastern coast of the island.

Then you will make your way to the peak of Prophet Ilias, Santorini’s highest mountain that stands some 2,000 feet above the sea. Being amazed by the island vistas around you, your guide will take you inside the ornate Greek Christian monastery perched at the mountain’s summit. From here you will proceed to the village of Pyrgos, the old capital of the island, where you will take a guided walk along the narrow paths to the ruins of the Venetian castle.

Your next stop is at the winery where you will learn the secrets of winemaking and enjoy all the tastes of the famous local wines. After the wine tasting, you will board the vehicle wich will take you back to the starting point.

More Information

Akrotiri Ruins - Red Beach

Admire the red layer of sand at the Red Beach. What makes the beach absolutely charming is its impressive red rock formations, which form a breathtaking landscape. Archaeological researches had already started in the 19th century. The eminent Greek archeologist Spyridon Marinatos started the excavations in Akrotiri in 1967, in order to prove his theory that the collapse of the Minoan civilization was due to the massive volcanic eruption of Santorini. He went on until his death in 1974, when the archaeologist Christos Doumas took over and till today he continues his work with remarkable results.
