We chose to walk up to the mountain and it was a wonderful experience. When we reached the antient city, besides the ruins we could enjoy the wonderful views to both sides of the island. By only turning your head you can see the airport...More

At the top of a steep hill, we took the minibus up and down. Not a lot to look at really but a few nice carvings and the views are great.

You’ll need a good few hours to see this place. Especially if you intend to walk up the mountain. You can drive most of the way but have your fitness up or else take your time. Take plenty of water. There is a store at...More

It dates from 800 BC though the remains are Greek & Roman. It is a lovely site to walk round but you do need to be relatively fit as the paths are rather steep & uneven. There isn't a huge amount left in good condition....More

A very interesting activity. Ancient Thera has some hidden gems of Greek architecture with a magnificent view!! A culturally rich experience. A trip to santorini cannot be complete without a visit to ancient Thera.

We were glad we had a rental car to take up this hill. Even though we met others who walked straight up the narrow, hairpin road, we were just driving by and decided to take a quick stop. The drive up is its own experience!...More

This archaeological site is a must see. Take a van up to the site from Kamari. I actually drove it in a rental car and it was scary. The road is very narrow, the turns are sharp, and in many places there is no guard...More
