South Santorini Bus Tour (Akrotiri Excavation)
These tickets can't be cancelled or rescheduled.
This coach tour will take you to the Southern part of the island and is a real gem for anyone interested in local history and culture.
The first visit will be at 16th century Monastery of the Prophet Elias built on the highest point of the island from where the views are majestic, it is 565 meters above sea level and offers breath-taking panoramic views over the entire island!
After the Monastery, we visit the most traditional village of Santorini, Megalochori. The escort will lead you through the narrow streets where you can admire the traditional architecture of the village and the unique craftsmanship of the local masons.
Afterwards you will visit the old village of Akrotiri and the surrounding area of the Ancient site of Akrotiri. There the tour escort will inform you of the history of the most important Minoan site of the ancient world.
Leaving the archaeological treasures you will head to the beautiful and famous black sand beach of Perivolos for swimming or lunch (not included). There you will stay for around 2 hours and have free time for swimming or eating in a local tavern or just simply sit back and relax and take in your surroundings!
To complete the perfect day you will visit a local winery where you can taste the different local wines and have a mini tutorial on the particular characteristics of Santorini vineyards.
You will then be taken back to the village that you started the tour in.
