  • Discover Remarkable Ruins

    If you love learning about the history of your chosen resort when venturing abroad, there’ll be more than enough to keep you occupied in Santorini. A highlight for any visitor is Akrotiri: a Minoan, Bronze Age settlement where you can unearth a captivating piece of Santorini’s past.

    Marvel at the various artefacts which have been preserved by volcanic ash for 4,000 years. Then, take one of the guided tours to hear about the events that transpired here.

  • Wonderful Wine

    Greece is famous for its wine, and this destination lets you learn all about one of the nation’s finest products. Stop by the Koutsoyannopoulos Wine Museum, which is filled with character and charm.

    It took 21 years to build this incredible underground archive, but it was well worth the effort. While visiting this site, you can find out how winemaking has evolved from the 1600s and even indulge in a bit of tasting – what’s not to love?

  • Bathe in Santorini’s Seas

    Santorini is packed with serene swimming spots and unique experiences. If you’re looking for somewhere that has both of these features, head to the hot springs on the magical island of Nea Kameni.

    The springs can easily be reached by boat, so you can embrace the scenic surroundings while sailing to this unmissable attraction. When you arrive, gaze at the beautiful volcanic environment and take a dip in the warm waters (which are said to have healing properties!)

Activities

From jet-skiing to a spot of fishing, Santorini is jam-packed with activities for avid adventurers to try. See the countryside on horseback and glide through the rolling hills, or put on your walking boots and amble along the Fira-to-Oia trail. Then, why not go kayaking, which allows you to glide across the gorgeous coastline?

If you’d prefer to just sit back and unwind, head to the open-air cinema at Kamari instead, for a night you’ll never forget.
