If you are travelling to Kamari, this is a must! We went by a rent a car, as it was too hot to climbe with a baby. When you are up, you need to climbe 20 min to the top so wear appropriate shoes! The view is just amazing and I would definetly recommend this!

very atmospheric to be in such a place - bit like coronation street for the 'back in the day people' !! :) could really imagine community life going on when you stand by these bonkers old house and ruins - my kids aged 13, 16 and 17 all loved it too - bit of a walk to get there though... More

It was a challenge getting up there in a car, quite a hike too, strong wind up at the summit but great views and worth the ride !

Once you're at the top, the views are incredible. The ride up there can be a little scary at times. Not great if you're scared of heights (for obvious reasons!)

We stayed at the Blue Sea in Kamari and kept looking at the daunting winding road up. I saw this was popular on trip advisor and a must do.... so we did do and so glad we did. Stunning views! Little snack hut at top but shut when we got there (think it closed 4ish) we took water so it... More

Cannot be anything but marveled at the ruins of this ancient city. The ruins really tell the detailed stories of life and leisure of the ancient world. I highly recommend the donkey ride up; the kids would not have liked the hike up, but loved the ride and really enjoyed the hike back down.

We considered several options to visit Ancient Thera in the morning combined with a hike with our teenage son and daughter. We settled on driving to Profitis Ilias, where we parked the car near the monastary before embarking on a hike across the highest ridge down towards the parking lot of the entrance to Ancient Thera. 10 minutes into the...
