TOUR DESCRIPTION

Uncover the fascinating history of Santorini on a guided tour of the Akrotiri excavations, a prehistoric town that has been frozen in time by ash that fell during the Minoan volcanic eruption 3,600 years ago. 

Some speculate that this may be the origin of “Atlantis”, a mythical city described in the scripts of the Greek philosopher “Plato” and has been lost in time since.

Ruins, frescoes, and impressive ceramic artifacts are just a few of the finds that add even more intrigue to the site as you wander around.

Continue your wine discovery in the island’s countryside visiting 3 traditional Santorini wineries enjoying cellar tours to see how the wine-making process unfolds, from grape to glass.

Learn about Santorini’s unique viticulture traditions at the unforgiving island conditions & taste a selection of 15 Santorini wine styles such as Assyrtiko, Nykteri, and the sublimely sweet Vinsanto wine.
