Santorini highlights tour with Akrotiri combines the best of the island with a visit to one of the most stunning archaeological sites in the world!
This remarkably well-preserved ancient Minoan city was buried by a volcanic eruption 3,600 years ago. It was discovered in 1967 near the modern village of Akrotiri. Archaeologists discovered at the site pottery, furniture, advanced drainage systems, and three-story buildings. Many believe the disaster and the site itself were the inspiration behind Plato’s story of Atlantis.
The archaeological site is under a bioclimatic shelter. As a result the visit is enjoyable even during the hottest months of the year.
