Discover Santorini

The most famous island in Cyclades, with more than 4.500 years of cultural history, will capture you with its beauty and stunning Caldera views.

Many reasons made this island famous worldwide and pretty much we've all seen a picture of the dream island (pictures of Santorini have been used many times for the global promotion of Greece as a tourist resort). Scientists connect the island to the mythical Atlantis, the unique caldera, the energy and the beauty of the island are the most important reasons for being ranked as one of the top islands in Europe and one of the once-in-a-lifetime must see destinations of the world.

Santorini is, indeed, an island of mystery, as the volcano has affected not only the morphology but the people of the island as well. Finally, the island is known for the view from "caldera", which is considered to be the most fascinating view in the world.

Excursion details

Your experience starts off from Crete with our luxurious high speed catamaran vessel "Caldera Vista". In less than two hours you will arrive at Thiras port.

When you arrive at the port of Santorini, Athinios, you will relax on a comfortable, air-conditioned bus which will be waiting for you, escorted by experienced guides (Russian, English, German, French, Polish, and Italian) who will provide information concerning the island and its history. You will enjoy the view of the beautiful countryside on the drive to the northern tip of the island. Then, you will arrive at the unique village of Oia. Built on the northern part of the Caldera rim, Oia offers magnificent views of houses studded along the volcanic rock hillside overlooking both the Mediterranean and Aegean sea.

A spectacular heaven for countless artists seeking for inspiration.

A visit to the island’s capital (chora), called “Fira”, where you will have plenty of free time to explore the picturesque traditional little alleys, admire the incomparable aesthetics of Aegean architecture, shop or simply enjoy a drink and the unique view of the volcano over the magnificent cliffs of Caldera.

You have the choice of either staying at the beautiful capital of the island Fira or visiting (approximately 2hours) the magnificent black beach of Perissa – Perivolos or taking a boat tour on Caldera (upon availability).
