Santorini (Thira) - the southern island of the Cyclades, with an area of 76 km square and a coastline of 70 km long. Many legends take place on this island, as it is called the "Lost Atlantis" or the "Pompeii of the Aegean". Around 1450 BC, as a result of powerful volcanic explosion, most of the island sank into the sea, shaping the island as warped crescent, with a steep cliff (altitude 300 m) in the western part and gently sloping beaches in the east.
The Santorinian landscape is absolutely stunning with its unusual and amazing beauty, with the white towns of Fira and Oia, contrasting with the black and violent volcanic rocks of the land. Then, the amazing color of the sea merging on the horizon with the blue Mediterranean sky is reflected on the domes of the churches.
You will visit the towns of Oia and Fira. Then swim at the famous beach of black volcanic sand or take a boat trip on a boat to the volcano.
You will have the opportunity to learn the fascinating history of this amazing place, take unique photos, and make souvenirs that will last a life time! At every stop you will spend about 1.5 hours. The tour will be by bus with free time in each of the stops.
