Semi Private Standard | Santorini Catamaran Cruise with Greek buffet and drinks

898 reviews
Full of hidden coves and snorkeling spots, Santorini’s gorgeous coastline is best seen from the water. This catamaran cruise takes you to a series of beaches and landmarks that can only be reached by boat, with time to soak in the island’s volcanic hot springs, too. Plus, with two tour times to choose from and round-trip transport, food, and snorkeling gear all included, this tour is extremely convenient for any traveler wanting to add it to their itinerary.

nothing special. entry fee is 12 euros. in a big hall there are a lot of old items, stone, houses. you can see it and that is it. no stories behind. there should be more signs and text about old times.

Very good experience. You should visit while ur in Santorini. Different experience that how people live thousands of years ago. Buy multi tickets for ancient city and prehistoric museum.

I was honestly only expecting to spend about 10 minutes there even though it was our most expensive trip so far, €5 parking plus €12 each to enter the site. The whole excavation was roofed and the route to view it was well laid out with plenty of information and curators on hand to assist. Although it was, largely, just a pile of stones it was a very important pile. The settlement was finally destroyed (after a few earthquakes) by a volcanic eruption that buried it under a river of lava. Very similar to Pompei I hear you say but this is 2000 years older than Pompei and from a civilisation that very little was known about. At the time us Brits were living in wooden shacks these guys had three storey stone houses and indoor plumbing. Other than the lack of wifi, the houses would still make perfectly decent homes now.

Wow! What an amazing discovery! It deserves totally to be called the "Greek Pompei". It's so interesting to visit this ancient town and walk through its buildings and alleys. Everything is so well preserved and it's pretty astonishing to think that it's from 1700 BC. I also suggest to visit the museum of prehistoric Thera in Fira along with Akrotiri. A lot of things found in the town are there, including notable paintings.

It is great to see these remains of ancient Greek culture, architecture and art. All destroyed by earthquakes and eruption of volcanoes, but therefore also quite good conserved. Since 1967 the excavations have started, surrounded and covered by a building that follows the logic of fire,water, earth and air.
