Full Day Santorini Tour

Full Day Santorini Tour

A poem in volcanic love will be unfolded in front of your eyes.
In this Santorini Tour we are heading to the Archaeological site of Akrotiri, an ancient settlement of magnitude importance for the Greek civilization that lasted 4.000 years. For about an hour we are going to explore the prehistoric treasure which is also called “the Greek Pompei”. We will find out about its state-of-the-art drainage system, its multi-storeyed buildings and its astonishing wall paintings. The tour has been named after these works of art that adorn the site exuding elegance and aesthetics.
 
Afterwards we will visit the adjacent Red and Black beaches. While the Red beach is a wondrous natural phenomenon, a red sculpture of the nature – the predominant color there is the red while the site resembles with the Martian scenery, the Black Beach is one of the most iconic sceneries that you will witness due to its black volcanic hue. These two beaches are the aquatic jewels of Santorini Tours and Santorini Excursions.
We will follow then the road to the highest point on the island, the Monastery of Prophet Elias, where you will indulge yourself in exquisite panoramic views to the pristine volcanic beauty and the splendor of the Aegean sea. The Monastery, built in 1711, is visitable and there is also a museum.
 
Our next stop will be at Pyrgos village, namely the medieval Santorini. Stroll around its cobbled streets and get lost in its traditional charm surrounded by a legion of whitewashed chapels, vineyards and neoclassical buildings. In its cobbled streets you will feel the pace of life as it used to be in Santorini.
 
The most gustatory part of this sightseeing tour takes place in one of the island’s most renowned wineries where we will delve into the art of Santorinean winemaking. An art that has been honed for years now with main promulgator the unique blend of the variety of the grapes, the microclimate and the volcanic ground.  As a consequence you will savor an eclectic range of top notch wine varieties: Assyrtiko, Athiri and Malagouzia. Exploring a destination has always been a multisensory experience and it is also true that taste is one of the most immersive ways to experience a place. We welcome you to this kaleidoscope of senses, aromas, images and memories through our Santorini Transportation Services  and Santorini Mini bus experience.
 
Then we are heading to Fira, the capital of the island, and following that the famous Blue Dome at the cliff-perched village of Firostefani. Continuing exploring the enchanting Santorinean countryside, we stop for a while in Imerovigli to witness the magical sight of Skaros rock, one of the medieval fortresses of the island. Imerovigli, being the second highest point on the island, has been named after the words imera (day) and vigla (watchtower) and it is one of the most privileged locations to enjoy a 360º view of Santorini. 
 
Being the most inclusive of Santorini tours, the last stop of this excursion is at the last spot on the island, the beautiful traditional small village of Oia, globally renowned for its sumptuous sunsets and romantic ambience. Oia is indeed one of the most picturesque locations that Santorini Shuttle Services explore. Walk along the pedestrian street with the multitude of cute small shops, explore the tiny fairytalish corners, talk with the welcoming villagers and admire the white washed houses tumbling down the precipice like sugar cubes; it feels like jumping into of the pages of the dreamiest tale. Opt for a bar to sip a drink while basking in the afternoon Aegean sun with iconic postcard views to the bluest blues.
In Oia you will find the No1 bookstore around the world as declared by the National Geographic, "Atlantis", where you can find even a copy of a jazz music book signed by Louis Armstrong!! Price: a legitimate 4.000€. 
 
In Oia you will be able to stroll around the rock-hewing buildings, the ship owners’ mansions dated back to the 19th century as well as the so call captains’ adobes (“kapetanospita”). You will also observe that many a peasant houses have their bathroom outside the main corpus of the house, an architectural formation that has been preserved through the years till today.
 
Sit at the Castle of Saint Nicholas, at the “Sunset Meeting Point” as everyone calls it, gaze at Thirassia island in front of you, the picturesque port of Ammoudi beneath you and open your eyes to a world of serenity and breathtaking beauty.
