Visit the prehistoric city of Akrotiri


Discover the remains of a pre-historic city that remained buried for almost 4000years, under a thick layer of volcanic material, it gives us unique and valuable information about the art, architecture, and everyday life back in 2000BC.

Walking within a 4000 year old perfectly preserved settlement, getting to understand how the society was organized and how people lived their lives, seeing the paved streets, and the remains of large 2-3 storey building complexes, kitchen, and toilette facilities, unique wall paintings and a perfect drainage - sewage system, is an experience surely not to be missed!

Itinerary

I will meet you at the agreed location (cable car station, hotel reception) and drive you with my private car at the archeological site of Akrotiri (around 20 minutes drive). On the way to Akrotiri, we will make a stop on a beautiful spot along the caldera, where you will have the chance to take some panoramic photos and enjoy the view and I will be able to explain to you a few things about the island and how it was formed.
