After meeting up with your guide, the trip starts with a stop at a breathtaking spot in the famous Caldera of the island Santorini where you will be introduced to its history and its unique scenery. Explore the myths and legends of Santorini, discovering the Akrotiri excavations, the most well-preserved prehistoric settlement of Greece. Enjoy a few minutes at the famous Red Beach, covered with red volcanic sand, and met by deep blue waters. The Red Beach is arguably one of the most famous and beautiful beaches of Santorini. It is located only some steps away from the ancient site of Akrotiri and offers an amazing view of the Aegean Sea.
Stop at the village of Emborio. It's the largest village of the island boasting wonderful windmills on the top of the hills, narrow streets painted in white, blue domed churches, a Cathedral, a medieval castle and a pagan church dating back to the 3rd century B.C. The traditional center looked very medieval and you will have the opportunity to wander about and to discover hidden gems.
Next, you visit the highest point of Santorini. The Mountain's name is Prophet Ilias, coming from the monastery with the same name on its peak. From the yard of the monastery, you will enjoy a striking view of the entire island.
From Prophet Ilias, you will continue to Pyrgos, a village that was once the ancient capital of Santorini. With more than 30 churches, a Venetian castle and incredible views of the Vulcano, Caldera, and the Aegean Sea.
Then make your way to the open terrace for an alfresco wine tasting with views of the Santorini, Caldera, and the Aegean Sea.
Then, it's time to head north to the other side of the island and discover Oia, the town of the sailors. What you should expect here is a short walking tour to admire the whitewashed houses and, of course, to gaze at some of the best views this world can offer. There will be free leisure time for shopping, refreshments/lunch and the chance to experience one of the world's best sunsets (included on the afternoon tour only).
The tour ends at your hotel or at the cable car terminal, in Fira for cruise ship guests.
