Day 8: Day Tour of Santorini
In ancient Greece Santorini was known as ‘Strongili’ meaning: round. It was a large and wealthy island. However, about 3,600 years ago, at the height of the Minoan civilization, it was torn apart by a tremendous volcanic eruption. The devastating explosion literally ripped the island to pieces and where land stood, Santorini’s famous caldera was created.
You will drive south across the island and your first stop will be the archeological site of Akrotiri.
