Σύντομη περιγραφή

The tour stats by visiting the Prophet Elias monastery and the village of Pyrgos, one of the most picturesque villages of the island. The tour continues to Akrotiri settlement excavations. The excavations at Akrotiri have uncovered one of the most important prehistoric settlements of the Aegean. The settlement was one of the major cities and ports of the Aegean. It was a crowded city of 20 acres with a remarkable social structure, public roads and multistorey buildings. Until today the excavations have revealed only a part of the prehistoric settlement. Nowadays, the archaeological site of Akrotiri, gives visitors the opportunity to admire and walk through the sheltered settlement. Then you will have free time (approx. 40min) to see the Red Beach from above, or visit Akrotiri bay for coffee or lunch (not included in the price). Fira town comes next. You will have the opportunity to take pictures of the Caldera, to shop around or enjoy the traditional Santorinian cuisine. Last stop, Oia village for the world’s most famous sunset.
