Leaving your cruise ship by tender, arrive at the old port of Fira to meet your guide.
Take the cable car up to Fira Town, where you will find your touring vehicle.
Visit the archaeological site of Akrotiri, a Bronze Age, Minoan settlement. Some historians hold this settlement, as well as the disaster that left it unknown to most of history, to be the inspiration of Plato's story of Atlantis, as mentioned in his dialogues Timaeus and Critias. Akrotiri was buried in ash by the massive Theran volcanic eruption in the middle of the second millennium BCE. Like Roman Pompeii, Akrotiri is remarkably well-preserved. Frescoes, pottery, furniture, advanced drainage systems and three-story buildings have been discovered at the site.
Continue to a winery for a tour and sampling of the famous local wines, local cheese and traditional snacks.
Drive to Oia for a tour of this beautiful village, situated at the northern-most point of Santorini, with magnificent views over the volcanic islets and caldera. Stroll the picturesque lanes of Oia, with their ochre houses and characteristic blue, dome roofs.
Continue to Fira, the main center of the island. After a walking tour with your guide, you will have some free time to explore and shop.
Return to Fira's old port by cable car and tender back to your cruise ship.
