See the highlights of beautiful Santorini on this memorable private scenic walking tour round the rural countryside as you head towards the ancient archeological site of Akrotiri, one of the most important pre-historic settlements in Europe, before visiting the tower of a Venetian castle for a guided tour and an amazing musical performance.
Your tour will start with a stroll along some of the paths that intertwine throughout the caldera. You will take the cobbled stone alleys and maze of narrow streets, and discover the secret paths leading to small Cycladic villages, enjoying the wide-sweeping views in every direction along the way.
Next, visit to the Minoan Bronze Age settlement of Akrotiri, which despite being destroyed in the Theran eruption in approximately 1627 BC and buried in volcanic ash, has managed to give up a great number of remarkably well-preserved remains of vibrant Frescoes and artifacts.
Finally, arrive at La Ponta, the tower of a 13th century Venetian castle for a comprehensive tour and a marvelous musical performance of the archaic sounds described by Homer in his famous works.
It is highly recommended to wear shoes with rubber soles during this tour. Expect uneven surfaces and some steep inclines.
