Approaching the island by ferry you will be amazed by the imposing sight of the town of Fira, with its white houses overhanging the cliff and overlooking the volcano.
Upon your arrival to the island, one of our English-speaking representatives will be waiting for you at the port to welcome you, transfer you to your hotel, and offer a first-hand account of some of the notable characteristics of this picturesque island.
The rest of the day is free to enjoy it as you please: walk in the scenic alleys during the daytime, while at night immerse yourself in the island’s big party scene.
Enjoy a free day to explore the enchanting island of Santorini at your leisure. Often referred to as the lost continent of Atlantis, this mystical destination offers a unique experience.
Santorini’s name was given by the Venetian Giacomo Barozzi due to the presence of a chapel dedicated to Saint Eirini. The Barozzi family occupied the island until 1576 when it became part of the Duchy of Naxos. Eventually, the Turkish conquest led by Piyale Pasha took place.
At the agreed time, we will transfer you to the new port of Santorini, Athinios, where you will board the ferry back to Athens.
