Akrotiri Ancient City, Santorini (Greece)

After being buried in the Volcanic ash of the catastrophic eruption that occured in the year 1613 BC, the Ancient city of Akrotiri in Greece was excavated fairly recently in the year 1967 and has been a major tourist attraction that appears on almost all the must visit lists of all travellers. This age old Minoan city is located on the Akrotiri Peninsula, the Akrotiri archaeological site is housed within a protective structure with wooden walkways that allow you to explore the ruins here from close. You can explore the three story high buildings that have survived along with the precisely planned drainage systems and well preserved stashes of pottery. Akrotiri town is also located nearby but at times can be overlooked by those who visit the Akrotiri Island, since the road to the Archaeological site does not pass through the town. The narrow peninsula boasts of two pristine and charming Akrotiri Beaches, Red Beach and Vlychada. Tourists also enjoy a visit to the Caldera Beach located inside the crater of the volcano. Many local tourists like to spend their Holidays in Akrotiri in Santorini, weekends and such since the air is clean, the food is fresh and the beaches here are not so crowded.

Attractions in Akrotiri:

Needless to say, the most drawing attraction in Akrotiri is the ancient Minoan settlement, first parts of which were excavated way back in 1967 and the work to find more building, the structure continues till date. Well protected by the same cause that destroyed it, the volcanic debris has made Akrotiri, Santorini one of the most well-preserved sites in all of Greece. Here in the Akrotiri Museum you can view the various maritime paintings that were made on the walls of the buildings in the main square of the town, along with artistic pottery articles and other such creative items. One of the most valuable things found here in Akrotiri archaeological site was a horse statue made of gold but hollow from inside proving that this civilization was much more advanced in their artistic ways than any other of that age.

And we will book again for next trip soon. Heartfelt thanks to everyone involved ! Best part of the trip was our hotel in Mykonos and Santorini. Just Magnificent !

      We just returned from our trip and had an amazing time, would like to thank you Shubham for the same. The hotels you booked were superb. They all were in the best possible location both in terms of ease of transport and the view. Also, your activeness to get us the boarding pass on return flight is much appreciated. Would also like to say that we took a semi private sail boat ride in Santorini and would highly recommend it to your customers.the company name is angel sailing and it was the best time we had. Just a small suggestion though, if possible avoid booking flights on Egypt Air . We had a not so pleasant experience in all our 4 connecting flights through them . But again ,thank you so much for the wonderful experience.

      The concept of travel triangle is pretty innovative and best for customers like us who prefer to follow fully customized itinerary than a pre-defined one. The team is great and routed us to the most suitable travel agents. We planned our holiday with hubholiday team and they provided good service. There was a couple of things which could be better from hubholiday team but the overall experience was nice.

      To an awesome Greece trip arranged by a perfect trip planner! This was my wifes and my first trip outside of India and we wanted it to be planned by an agent rather than doing everything by ourselves. I went with Travel Triangle through which I got in touch with StreetRomeo and Mr Jigar. Thats where started a journey which would make our trip effortlessly awesome! I am a very picky person and i research a lot on the web as well. I also have a lot of questions always. Jigar was always available!! Almost 24/7 - the guy doesn't sleep it seems! He was constantly in touch with me through bookings and through our daily plans. Everything was very professional right from day 1 with booking.. vouchers..day wise plan etc. Everyday Jigar would send us the details for the next day including driver details..points to visit..and others Jigar also handpicked perfect hotels as per our priorities...mine was good hospitality and location..Jigar made sure both were met! Me and my wife went on the following itenary:- 1) 2 days in Athens including hop on hop off tour 2) Athens to Meteora - 2 days including sunset and half day tour 3) 3 days in Santorini Every hotel.. every tour was amazing! We loved the locations..the hospitality of each of our hotels all suggested by Jigar 1) Athens - Hotel Athens Atrium 2) Meteora - Oikia Guesthouse 3) Santorini - Hotel Nemesis Special thanks to Jigar and Travel Triangle for making memories and making such wonderful trips and moreover being available always for anything! I totally recommend StreetRomeo and Jigar for anyone who wants to travel anywhere abroad! Cheers! - Vikram R

      When Jigar helped me create a personalized & customized itinerary after lengthy discussions even at odd hours, I knew this was the travel agency I wanted to go with. I had no apprehensions about the agency while making the payment. And I am proud of my decision. I must say this trip was so meticulously planned and executed by the team, that my wife said that she wants us to book all the future trips with the same travel agent. Everything was so on time and Jigar was providing us real time information about the different options to explore even while we were in Greece. It was a great assurance to know that someone had our backs. Jigar was continuously in touch with us throughout the trip and made sure that everything went as planned. Thank you Jigar and StreetRomeo for this amazing trip!

    FAQ's of Santorini

    Read on to find out why our customers love us!

    Generally small family run restaurants with home-style cooking dot the town of Akrotiri, where the fish is fresh and the ingredient are locally grown.

    Though the town is close by, it is often missed because it does not lie on the road to the ruins. Many people do visit the town to spend the day at the beaches here.

    The best way to look around in Akrotiri is with a tour guide who can escort you around the city in small batches. It takes about 1.5 to 2 hours to completely explore these ruins.
