Museum of Prehistoric Thera

The residents of Santorini have always known that they live in a special place. For thousands of years, they have made glorious works of art to celebrate the beauty of the world around them. They have built spectacular villages to support their thriving communities.

And they continue to take pleasure in the simplest of things, like the view of the sun setting into the Aegean or a cup of local wine. Times change, but Santorini doesn’t. This tour invites guests to follow in the footsteps of Santorini residents before them and to experience the timeless beauty of the island like never before, drawing on the wealth of Greek hospitality.

The tour requires a high degree of walking and can be considered physically demanding.
