Santorini, Greece

Santorini, Greece-port

With dramatic views of classic whitewashed houses clinging perilously to the side of the caldera and stunning beaches of white and red sand or black pebbles, it’s no wonder this may be the most photographed scenery in the world. Visit Ancient Akrotiri, the archeological site of a town frozen in time by ash from an eruption 3,600 years ago. Also worth a day trip is the Volcano of Santorini Palea (old) Kameni and Nea (new) Kameni , two small islands of black lava positioned in the centre of the basin of Santorini.

    If you love sightseeing and shopping, then don't miss this opportunity to explore the charming villages and shops of Santorini.

    After a brief tender ride to the port of Athinios, you will depart the pier for the scenic drive by coach to the northern tip of the island, and visit Oia. This quaint little village was once the home of wealthy seafarers. Still evident are their old, two-story mansions painted in a spectrum of pleasing pastel colors. During a walking tour through Oia's narrow cobbled streets, you will come across many tiny shops offering a varied and unusual collection of handmade works of ceramic art, paintings and semi-precious jewelry. Coffee shops perched on the edge of the cliffs offer spectacular views of Fira and the volcano.

    Following your visit to Oia, your tour will conclude near the Metropolis Church in Fira, the capital of Santorini, which is perched on the volcano's caldera. Upon arrival, you will have the option of descending to the port via cable car, or staying in town for sightseeing, shopping or browsing before returning to the ship independently.

    Please note: Interior visits of the monastery are not permitted. Guests are encouraged to wear comfortable walking shoes for this tour, which includes many steps and cobblestone sidewalks. Lines may be encountered for the cable cars during the busy summer season. Some walking is necessary, as there is a 2-block interval between the cable car station and the coach meeting point.
