TUESDAY MAY 23RD 2017: Full 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.

Akrotiri is a 5,000 year old Minoan settlement which has been preserved in ash. Indeed the town was entirely buried in the great volcanic eruption and remained untouched until it was discovered in 1967. This was possibly the most technologically advanced city of its time. The ruins are very well preserved: streets, buildings, stairs and even second floors of buildings are still visible. Here you can look at Minoan pottery and frescoes, and with a little imagination, feel what it would have been like to live in ancient Greece so many years ago.

After your visit you will proceed to the village of Pyrgos. This charming settlement dates from medieval times and is located on a hill overlooking the island. At the highest point stand the ruins of a Venetian castle and below it the village of Pyrgos.

You will then proceed a small distance to the village of Megalochori and the Venetsano winery which is located on its outskirts. Megalochori is one of the more traditional and quieter villages of the island. Here you will enjoy a short walk through the ancient streets of the village and discover Santorini as it once was. You will have the opportunity to see dwellings which were built in the traditional Cycladic architecture and to walk through the tight streets which were designed as such in order to make the village more defendable against pirate attacks.
