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 and enjoy 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 12 Santorini wine styles such as Assyrtiko, Nykteri, and the sublimely sweet Vinsanto wine.
The wines served during the tour are mainly whites and dessert wines, as these are the kind of wines the island of Santorini produces. This is a gentle note for guests that only drink red wine.
Duration 6 hours approx. The exact duration may vary.
