Full description
Start with the breath-taking view at the Prophet Elias Monastery and visit the picturesque monastery. Then head to Megalochori village, an extremely charming traditional settlement, almost abandoned after a major earthquake.

Your trip continues to Akrotiri Excavations, one of the most significant archaelogical sites in Greece that includes a vast structure, once inhabited by 200 families. The site was preserved, buried under the volcano’s lava.

Then you will have free time at the Red Beach to simply enjoy the colorful formations of the mountain and/or visit Akrotiri Bay for coffee or lunch with Greek traditional mezedes and ouzo (not included in the price). Perivolos, with its black sandy beach, comes next. There you will have enough time to enjoy swimming, explore the area, and taste fresh cooked fishes at the local taverns. The last stop is one of the most popular wineries in Santorini, for a wine tasting experience.
