Ancient Akrotiri by Private Car

Book This Shore Excursion
Starting from $729 USD / Adult
Delve deep into the history of Santorini with a private vehicle, driver and English-speaking guide as you tour a Bronze Age city lost to a volcanic eruption in 1450 BC. According to legend, it was the same volcano that vanquished the fabled city of Atlantis. In 1930 the site was discovered and 37 years later the completed excavations revealed the remains of a once-glorious city of more than 30,000 inhabitants. Walk the cobbled paths they took, see their ancient homes and shops and glimpse into how the city's people lived. Continue to the village of Akrotiri, with a narrated exploration of five fortified medieval settlements. Finally, return to lively Fira for self-guided sightseeing before returning to the ship with an included cable car ticket.
