Get under the skin of Santorini as you delve beyond its romantic villages and spectacular views, and discover the fascinating history, which spans thousands of years, of this beautiful island.
Begin your tour of Santorini with a visit to Akrotiri, a Minoan settlement buried under volcanic ash following the devastating eruption of Santorini's volcano. Thanks to the layer of ash covering the city, similar to Pompeii, Akrotiri has been well preserved and you'll have the chance to explore this ancient city, now archaeological site, with your private guide. Learn about the civilization that once lived here before continuing on to visit the volcanic beaches of the island. You'll also have the opportunity to wander through some of Santorini's traditional villages, showcasing authentic whitewashed Cycladic architecture, before enjoying a wine tasting session with a light meal at a local family-owned wine estate.
