Akrotiri Excavations archaeological tour and Red Beach

Start your day with a breathtaking view from the highest point of the whole island, the Prophet Elias Monastery. Built approximately 565 meters above sea level with great history and importance for the locals.

Megalochori, a picturesque and romantic village almost abandoned after the big earthquaqe is our next stop, a traditional village without crouds and cars, ideal for walking in the narrow streets, admiring the churches, small shops with hand made products, old mansions and traditional taverns.

Tour continues to Akrotiri excavations, one of Greece's hidden gems, an archaeological site that was excavated in 1967, revealing ruins dating as far back as 1500 B.C.. Once habited by 200 families and preserved buried under the volcano’s lava.

A launching point for Santorini's famous beach, the Red Beach, where you will have free time to enjoy the colorful formations of the mountain and/or visit Akrotiri Bay for coffee or lunch with Greek traditional mezedes and ouzo (not included in the price). Perivolos, with its crystal clear waters and black sandy beach comes next. There you will have enough time to enjoy swimming, explore the area and taste fresh cooked fishes at the local taverns.
