Meal(s) Included: Breakfast and Dinner
Enjoy a relaxing breakfast at the hotel and spend the morning as you wish.
The Archaeological Site of Akrotiri
Explore the ruins of this "Minoan Pompeii." Learn about the volcano under Santorini that erupted in 1627 BC and how this Minoan Bronze Age settlement was buried in volcanic ash. That same ash preserved frescoes and other artworks for posterity. At the museum, examine these artifacts as well as the instruments and tools of everyday life that were used by this lost civilization.
On Your Own Time and Lunch in Oia
After the coach takes you to Oia’s main square, you’ll be amazed at this picturesque village and how it is terraced down the steep slope of the caldera, with houses built into the niches. Visit old and new structures that vary in both size and grandness. After you explore the village, enjoy a relaxing lunch on your own at one of the many cliff-side tavernas.
Unwind at the Hotel
Later in the afternoon, return to the Majestic Hotel Santorini for a bit of recreation and relaxation.
High-Speed Ferry to Crete
Head for the rustic island of Crete in business-class seats on a high-speed ferry. Enjoy a tasty boxed dinner to eat on the way.
