Itinerary

Akrotiri Excavations Archeological site

See the excavations of the prehistoric town in Akrotiri which was created in the fifth millennium BC and then was covered with ash after the eruption of the volcano around 1500 years BC. The volcanic ash, by covering the whole city, kept the biggest parts of this area protected and now it is possible to walk inside the city and also see the wall paintings and some furniture vessels.

 
 

Red Beach, Akrotiri

The volcanic Red beach of Santorini is located on the South part of the island at the village of Akrotiri. This beach is a unique outcome of the volcano’s eruption around  the 16th Century BC. The red lava stone behind the beach creates an astonishing blend with the black sand and the crystal blue water. The way to reach the shore is uneven and rocky which makes it a bit dangerous sometimes to get there, but you can find a fantastic spot on the top of the beach to admire and take extraordinary pictures of this amazing natural creation.

 
 

Lost Atlantis Museum

Experience the great eruption, one of the biggest events of the prehistoric Mediterranean! Feel the earthquake and tsunami with all your senses and see the destruction of mythical Atlantis, in a 9D experience.

Frequently asked questions and tips

What happens if there are kids or elders and do we have to be in a good physical shape?

Every one of our drivers is a professional, knows how to modify every different tour and to handle special requests depending on the type of participants to make an unforgettable enjoyable experience for them.

What kind of clothes and shoes is needed to wear?

It is recommended to wear easy walking shoes because there are some specific areas where you may need to walk on uneven or rocky ground and comfortable clothes to feel relaxed and cooler especially during the summer months. Also if you are interested in visiting some religious monuments, please dress appropriately.

What is the private sightseeing tour?

The private tour is hiring a car and a local assistant for a few hours to go and explore the island. But with “Cozy pickups” you will not only have a well- trained professional driver, but you will also have the opportunity to learn some very interesting information about the heritage, the culture and history of Santorini from a “friend”

Useful tips:

During the summer time in Greece there are high temperatures and the sun is very hot. We recommend that you wear sunglasses, sunscreen and possibly a hat to protect yourself. In every one of our sightseeing rides we offer bottles of fresh water for every individual to stay cool and hydrated.
