The Half Day Santorini Private Shore Excursion begins in the capital of Fira, where your Santorini Licensed Tour Guide will be waiting in front of the cable car exit to lead you through the pretty narrow, cobble stone streets to your private car.
Acrotiri excavations will be our first stop, so you can be introduced to the amazing history of the Island and the advanced civilization that was born in Santorini. Many historians believe that the lost city of Atlantis is the island of Santorini.
After visiting Acrotiri will head towards Oia, the island’s second town, where you will have plenty of opportunity to explore the winding streets and busy markets. Like Fira, Oia is spectacularly perched atop the caldera of the volcano and is famous for its spectacular panoramic views, often considered among the most spectacular in the world. As your Half Day Santorini Private Shore Excursions unfold you will have a chance to explore Oia and visit her medieval buildings, relics from the island’s Venetian occupation, as well as more traditional Greek homes that have gradually eroded into the mountain giving them a unique appearance and making them a highlight of any Santorini Private Tour. As your Santorini Shore Excursion winds down you will have Free Time in Oia and the opportunity to sample the local delicacies and buy some famous Santorini wine to enjoy on the way to your next Port of Call.
