All about the trip
Discover the charming volcanic island Santorini with its white and blue painted houses and mysterious history. Enjoy the unique atmosphere of the village Oia once famous for its merchant fleet and savour the spectacular views of the island and its beaches.
Santorini Island has a rich and tumultuous history whose remnants you can still see there. Three quarters of the volcanic island had been swept into the sea by a strong eruption 3 500 years ago. And you can still see the broken shape of the island that remained above the sea line on pictures of Santorini taken from the bird's-eye view.
Ruins of advanced civilization have been recently discovered here. And some believe Santorini is the mythic Atlantis.
We will take the luxurious ferry Highspeed 5 from the port of Heraklion in the morning. After our arrival to Santorini Island we will visit the village of Oia with old captains' houses and a traditional windmill. Then we will have some free time in the capital Fira where we can enjoy a drink with a gorgeous view or do some shopping.
We will have lunch in a traditional Greek tavern offering fresh fish, local specialities like Fava and excellent wine.
In the afternoon we can go swimming to the Kamari beach with black sand and crystal clear water. This is an optional activity and you can discuss with your guide if you are interested.
There is an optional tour around the volcano for an extra charge.What Wikipedia Says
