Being or not a history enthusiast, this guided Tour at the Prehistoric city of Akrotiri is an experience surely not to be missed!

A Bronze Age settlement, an archaeological site that encapsulates fascinating insights to life back in 2000 B.C. After the great volcano eruption, the place remained buried under a thick layer of volcanic material as a Greek Pompeii for almost 4000 years , until it was accidentally discovered,during works to get volcanic soil from the island of Santorini to be used for building and insulating the Suez Canal.

 

The excavations revealed one of the best preserved ancient cities to this day with a dense urban planning. In this guided tour walking  around the 4000 year old  settlement you will get an understanding of how the society was organized. See the paved streets, the remains of about 40 two-three stories high building complexes, kitchen and toilette facilities, a perfect plumping and drainage – sewage system and astonishingly well preserved decorations and murals.

 

And just to excite your imagination further more we have to mention that there are theories that connect it with the myth of lost Atlantis

 

Our program is very flexible and can always be adjusted to your needs and internets. We are here to discuss with you and add places of interest or even leave out some of them
