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 Akrotiri, as well as the disaster that left it unknown to most of history, to be the inspiration behind 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 Fira, the main center of the island. After a walking tour, 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.
