Donkeys have always been an essential role in the cultural and economic development in Greece and they continue to adore these animals. Ride up the 586 stairs onboard your trusty stead!
When we reach the top, we’ll explore Santorini’s capital: Fira. Stroll down the white cobbled streets and marvel the contrasts of the modern day world mixed with olden day charms in a city that has approximately 2,000 inhabitants.
Whilst here, visit the Pre-historic Museum, boasting an impressive collection of findings from excavations in Akrotiri. Following this is the island bus tour, where we’ll take a leisurely stop at a local winery and learn all about Santorinian wines.
Continue to the velvety, dark volcanic beaches of Kamari, Perivolos and Perissa. Admire the serene atmosphere and the beauty of the glittering Aegean coast. Head to the medieval village of Pyrgos, found on the highest point of Santorini and was declared a protected village in 1995. It is a typical fortress settlement where you can find the ruins of Kasteli Castle, one of the five “kastelia” on the island.
Our last stop, is one of the most loved villages in Santorini: Oia. Found high on a Cliffside, this attractive village is full of fascinating architecture, houses sunk deep into the volcanic sand, whitewashed house and big blue domes that sparkle beneath the sun. After a lovely walking tour around the area, our tour returns back to your hotel for you to contemplate this in-depth tour of Santorini.
