    Well-Preserved Ruins

    Akrotiri is a residential space frozen in time around 1600 BC, providing a snapshot of life in the Minoan Settlement just before its citizens had to flee the increasing fury of the Santorini eruption. The self-guided audio tour is designed to start at the entrance of the archaeological site, which is located south of the modern village that bears the same name. The text, audio narration, and maps are all available offline to avoid roaming charges. For the best experience, download the app and your audio tour on your smartphone prior to your visit.

    Marvel at History

    The layout of this town gives incomparable insight into the lives of the Minoan population. Double Horns Square is a unique excavation displaying an element of Cretan architecture that inspired wealthy Minoan merchants and sailors. Discover the once-bustling Telchines street, affluent residences called Xestes, and creative frescoes and murals at the House of the Ladies.

    Put on your headphones and walk through this site at your own pace to learn about the fascinating history of Akrotiri and why it is called the 'Pompeii of the Aegean'.
