Santorini wears its rich history on its sleeve, with medieval buildings, Ottoman villages and weathered ruins all over the island. Rather than dealing with the hassle of organising your own transport, you can discover the island’s history and its vibrant modern culture on this tour around four of its southernmost villages. Visit the villages of Pyrgos, Megalochori and Emporio and Akrotiri excavations before ending your trip at a family-owned winery in Akrotiri, where you can sample their family wines and organic produce while watching the sunset over the Aegean Sea.
- For your convenience, this private tour begins and ends at your cruise ship or hotel
- End the road trip with organic food and wine made on the island
