Unnamed Road, Akrotiri 847 00, Greece
The 3,500-year-old city of Akrotiri offers a unique insight into prehistoric civilization. The volcanic eruption that blew out the heart of Santorini buried this Minoan settlement under ash. Discovered in 1967, only a fraction of the site has been excavated (uncovering the entire city could take a century). It’s worth visiting with a guide; contact our Bookings Team to arrange a tour.
