Stop At: Firostefani

Next stop on our tour-schedule is the village of Firostefani, the "crown of Fira", which owes its name to its elevated position.

Another unforgettable experience is awaiting at Profitis Ilias, once we reach the summit of Mountain Profitis Ilias (Prophet Elijah), the highest point of Santorini at an altitude of 600 meters above sea level. Here, we will explore the area of the homonymous historical monastery and take more photographs of the panoramic view from this amazing vantage point.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At:

The village of Pyrgos, which is located at the foot of Mountain Profitis Ilias, will be the first traditional village of our tour. This place offers us trademark panoramic views of both sides of Santorini, while it retains features of the Venetian rule. Moreover, the traditional Cycladic houses and pathways placed all around the old Venetian castle make Pyrgos Village a place not to be missed.

Duration: 35 minutes

Stop At: Megalochori - Traditional Village

We continue our tour to the village named Megalochori, which has been characterized as one of the most picturesque and traditional villages of the island. Historical mansions, restored houses and pirate hideaways are the top preserved features of this settlement.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Akrotiri Archaeological Site

Furthermore, a stop that must not be excluded from the full day private tour is Akrotiri Archaeological Site. This specific site is one of the most significant prehistoric settlements of the Aegean. Please notice that Akrotiri had once been a major city before it was covered in ash by volcanic eruptions. Luckily, the ash has preserved structures and their contents, allowing us to admire this wonder of antiquity.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Red Beach

Afterwards, our driver - guide will be pleased to take you to the unique Red Beach just to get a glimpse of the red volcanic rocks. These rocks were created by geological formation processes that are still active.

Duration: 25 minutes

Stop At: Perivolos Beach

At this point of our tour it will be our pleasure to take you for a swim at the dazzling crystal clear waters of the famous Black Beach (also known as Perissa) if you wish. This seaside area actually forms the tip of the long black sand beach of Perivolos and is, without a doubt, the busiest and most remarkable beach of Santorini. Enjoy the spectacular views of the Aegean Sea and the nearby islands, as well as an optional lunch at a seaside restaurant.

Duration: 1 hour
