What You Can Expect
As you drive along in your air-conditioned minibus, your knowledgeable guide will share his knowledge on Santorini, giving you a first-hand view of the island. You will visit all the favorites of Santorini.
First, you visit the famous black beach, with its crystal blue waters, on the southeastern coast of the island. Take in the spectacular views of the Aegean Sea and the nearby islands. Enjoy an optional lunch of fish or at a seaside restaurant.
Then you will continue to visit the village of Emporio, the largest village on the island of Santorini. You can look at the historic windmills and have an excellent view of the rest of the island. On the hill above the village, you’ll discover both the ruins of Kasteli, a fortress from the Byzantine period and the ruins of Goulas.
Then you will make your way to the peak of Prophet Ilias, Santorini’s highest mountain that stands some 2,000 feet above the sea. Be amazed by the island vistas around you and follow your guide inside the ornate Greek Christian monastery perched at the mountain’s summit.
Continue with an optional visit to the winery Venetsanos. Learn the secrets of winemaking and enjoy the famous local wines.
On the way to the Northern part of Santorini, you will make a short stop in Firostefani to see the famous Blue Dome Church, the subject of so many Santorini postcards, and the caldera.
You’ll visit the traditional village of Imerovigli, which is situated on a higher cliff. In front of the village is an enormous rock called Skaros, which used to be the best spot to look out for pirates.
Continue through the beautiful Santorini countryside to the village of Oia. Built in the northern part of the caldera rim, Oia is the most photographed location in Santorini and a place where many artists have found their inspiration in Oia’s beauty, the traditional architecture, and the amazing sunset.
Enjoy the stunning views of the caldera, where many dwellings are built into niches of the volcanic rock. You will also have a panoramic view of the rest of Santorini and the Aegean Sea.
