  • Oia Sunset and Traditional Villages Tour in Santorini

    Leave your Santorini hotel and travel to the archeological site at Akrotiri, an ancient city that was frozen in time after a volcanic eruption some 3,600 years ago. Step inside with your guide and learn about the Minoan city before the devastating event occurred.

    Gaze in admiration at the ruins of multi-storied buildings that date back to the 16th century, and admire the intricately designed drainage system that hints at a talented civilization far more advanced than its time. As you explore the main street, lined with old stores and warehouses from the ancient commercial city, hear about the ceramic artifacts, such as pithoi (earthenware jugs), and other rare finds that add even more intrigue to the site.

    The most impressive view of Akrotiri is seen from a triangular plaza near the exit, so head there next to soak up the views. Before leaving the site, your guide will also show you the burial place of the site’s chief archaeologist, Professor Spyridon Marinatos of the University of Athens, an individual who sadly died working on the excavations.

    From Akrotiri, continue to Pyrgos, a village that was once the ancient capital of Santorini. With more than 50 churches, a Venetian castle and incredible views, the village is the perfect place to spend your afternoon. Enjoy plenty of free time to explore independently and perhaps enjoy a late lunch (own expense), too.

    Meet back up with your guide in the early evening, and travel to Oia village, the quintessential Greek village that’s known for its sugar cube houses and pretty, blue-domed churches. The village is renowned as the place on the island to see the sun set, with its streets stacked into the side of the cliffs overlooking the spectacular caldera. Follow your guide up to the old ruins of an ancient Venetian castle, known as the Kastro of Oia, and gaze down from the village and caldera to the sea.
