Your guide will pick you up from your hotel and we’ll head to Oia, easily the most popular village of Santorini due to its dramatic setting at the edge of a steep cliff and its charismatic beauty. Stroll around cobblestone alleyways with whitewashed houses and snap photos from viewpoints only locals know about.
It is no wonder that a few movies have been filmed in Oia, for its beauty is unprecedented. It is a synthesis of white-blue houses and churches, with pink and ochre details, “hanging” on the caldera, composing a colourful canvas that is difficult to put in words. It is a rather peaceful and idyllic village that comes alive during the sunset time.
In Oia we will stroll in the charming narrow paths, visit shops, galleries and the famous tiny bookstore of Atlantis.
We’ll then move inland to the village of Pyrgos, the former capital of Santorini, where we’ll explore its pastel-coloured houses, blue-domed churches, and vineyards. Through winding pathways, we’ll walk all the way up the ruins of a medieval castle to admire amazing vistas. Going downhill to the village, it’s time to relax your muscles in a lovely spot where you’ll snack on some local, seasonal Mezedes (Greek tapas) such as tomato fritters, fava, white eggplant, cold cuts, and local
Once you’ve filled your belly, we’ll head to our next view point at the edge of the island and admire Santorini’s unique Red Beach. Next, we’ll stop at one of the oldest lighthouses in Greece, the Akrotiri Lighthouse, which dates back to 1892 and according to many, boasts the best views in all of Santorini!
Our tour wouldn’t be complete without tasting exceptional Santorini wines, famous for their unique character which comes from the island’s volcanic conditions and local cultivation techniques. Enjoy not one or two but 6 premium wines during a tasting session in a local winery with dazzling caldera views and a selection of local cuts and cheeses.
At the end of this tour, you will have seen the most Instagrammable spots of Santorini!
