I consider my self a citizen of the world that travelled not as much as I would like to, but enough to realize the differences between experiencing new places through the eyes of a traveller rather than through the eyes of a tourist. RoadTales is available to offer you a tailor made experience, an unforgettable tale! What i usually recommend is that i give you all the options available and its up to you to decide which parts of the island you would like to visit and how much time to spend there. We only have what we remember, so lets make memorable moments together!

Itinerary Details

Operated by: RoadTales

This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Red Beach

Red beach, located by the village of Akrotiri. Beautiful beach, well known for the unique color of the sand and the hill behind it. Soaring red lava cliffs which drop right to the sandy shore and into the clear blue sea make for a majestic setting and one to enjoy. You'll have around 30 minutes here for photos and for walking around.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Monastery of Profitis Ilias

Profitis Ilias (30 minutes)The highest spot of the island (567 meters) is located between Pyrgos and Kamari. The Mountain's name is Profitis Ilias (Prophet Elijah), coming from the Monastery with the same name on its peak. From this vantage point, you will enjoy a striking view of the entire island, from the patchwork agricultural plains to the hilltop village of Oia.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Akrotiri Archaeological Site

Ancient Akrotiri (one hour) Visit one of the most stunning archaeological sites in the World!! The ancient Minoan city buried by the volcanic eruption 3600 years ago was discovered in 1967 nearby the modern village Akrotiri, remarkably well-preserved. Pottery, furniture, advanced drainage systems and three story buildings have been discovered at the site. Many believe the disaster and the site itself as the inspiration behind Plato's story of Atlantis.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Megalochori - Traditional Village

• Megalochori traditional village (45 minutes) with its typical traditional Cycladic houses and neoclassic buildings. It is located between Pyrgos, Emporio and Akrotiri at a distance of less than 10 km from Fira. It is made of hundreds of small white painted houses built the one upon the other and it is characterized by its beautiful churches. It combines traditional architecture with vaulted houses and calderimia (stone-cobbled narrow pathways) and a lively community with a fairly large permanent population

Duration: 45 minutes

Stop At: Pyrgos Kallistis

Pyrgos casteli (45 minutes)Pyrgos was built on the top of a hill and was until the early 1800, the capital of the island. The village is composed of traditional houses built around the Venetian Castle and the small streets follow the shape of the hill. Climbing from the square up to the castle of Pyrgos, the stone houses crowd more densely together and the labyrinth of narrow vaulted lanes becomes more tortuous. The village has many churches, around 33, but the most famous is the Monastery of Profitis Ilias, where a small collection of ethnographic material and old icons are exhibits. Pyrgos is a place that certainly worth a visit and dedicate enough time to the most fabulous panoramic view of the island.

Duration: 45 minutes

Stop At: Perissa Black Sand Beach

Perissa black beach(15minutes)Perissa is one of Santorini best beaches. Next to Emporio village a long dark sand endless beach. A feature that makes Perissa unique (besides the crystal water and the smooth sand) is the fact that is the best protected beach from the summer Aegean winds (called "Meltemia" in Greek). Perissa lies right next to ProfitisIlias Mountain, totally protected from the North. Magnificent beach for swimmimg.
