You will be transferred from the ship by colorful local boat to Athinios where you will join the waiting motor coach. Driving through picturesque villages, you will reach the southern end of the island and the archaeological site of Akrotiri. In about 1500 BC, a volcanic eruption destroyed all life on the island and much of the island collapsed beneath the waves. The remains of Akrotiri remained undiscovered until the excavations, led by Professor Spyros Marintos, began in 1967. What he uncovered was evidence of an amazing city with houses, streets, squares and workshops, all of which had been covered under a thick blanket of pumice for almost 3,500 years. You will be able to walk around this ancient city among well-preserved buildings, giving you insight into the ancient civilization of Santorini. Continue to Fira town where the Archaeological Museum is located. In this small but remarkable museum, you will see artifacts from the archaic, roman & hellenistic periods which were excavated in the area of Santorini. Enjoy some free time in town before taking a spectacular cable car ride down to the pier.
