Bus Tour in Santorini
Starting the tour, Megalochori is the first traditional village we meet. It is made of hundreds of small white painted houses built the one upon the other and it is characterised by beautiful churches. It combines traditional architecture with vaulted houses and calderimia (narrow stone-cobbled streets) and a lively community with a fairly large permanent population. Our stay will last about 40 mins.
Our next destination is Akrotiri village. As you are taking the road to Akrotiri, on your right, you will stay amazed by the fascinating view of the Caldera. The picturesque atmosphere of the view towards Fira and Oia will rivet you. We will make a stop at the archaelogical site of Akrotiri for about 1 hour. Akrotiri is one of the most important archaeological sites in the world thanks to a prehistoric settlement discovered by the excavations, which began systematically since 1967.
It reopened its doors after a renovation and the addition of new roof, and it highlits the best-preserved prehistoric city and all the discoveries brought to light by the excavations in this very significant area that was formerly buried in lava but managed to remain unchanged. Next we will visit Perivolos which is the largest black sand beach on the island. Our stay will last for two hours, enough for a lunch break in a traditional tavern for a taste of local dishes (not included in the bus tour price) and a swim.
The last destination is the Santo Wines Winery. The Union of Santorini Cooperatives, named as Santo Wines, was founded in 1947. Today, Santo Wines, the biggest wine producer of the island, has approximately 2500 members that equals to the total number of the island’s producers, while 1000 of them are active. Wine for us is art, made with love and care and for that reason we have gathered all the necessary elements.
