Details

After your water shuttle drops you at the pot of Athinios, you'll drive to Pyrgos village, one of the oldest settlements and the highest village on the island. Admire the beautiful old houses and the Venetian fortress crowned by several churches. From Pyrgos square the road runs uphill to the Monastery of the Prophet Elijah, the highest point of the island from where the views out over the caldera are most majestic. Leaving Pyrgos you head to the northern end of Santorini to the village of Oia, which offers magnificent views of the caldera and the rest of the other islands. With its cobblestone streets, beautiful old mansions, and houses perched on the cliffside, you'll realize why the traditional Cycladic architecture is so well known. Here you'll have free time to stroll around the narrow streets with the old beautiful houses and the tiny picturesque shops. You then leave the village of Oia and make your way to a local taverna A buffet-style lunch will be served and during your meal, you will have the opportunity to enjoy and experience a typical Greek fiesta dancing to "Zorba the Greek" and breaking plates while the bouzouki plays its solo. After lunch, you'll continue through the beautiful countryside to Fira town, the picturesque capital of the island built on the rim of the caldera wall. Enjoy the town at leisure or return to your ship.

Notes

Good to Know: The return to the ship is by cable car from Fira Town to the port and then a water shuttle. The cable car is reached by a long walk across Fira upper town along narrow cobble-stoned streets with an incline and steps. Low heeled shoes are recommended and passengers with physical limitations are requested to take this into consideration. Passengers should also expect lines at the cable car; the wait can be in excess of 60 minutes if multiple ships are in port.
