Santorini is an island that needs to be discovered in each hidden corner to really understand its beauty and its uniqueness. This tour has been designed to explore parts of the island normally unknows to tourists. We pick you up from your hotel or close by, the first stop is in the village of Pyrgos, the famous traditional suburb with picturesque white & blue edges, so cute and not very touristic that shows exactly its pure original soul. The visit takes usually 1 hour around the narrow streets up till the ruins of the Castle, the Kasteli.
Second stop will be the village of Megalochori, an other hidden gem of Santorini: low houses, excavated, villas, little balconies & courtyards, chapels, churches and domes make of the walk through the village a unique experience. Famous for the delicious local food & wines it is surrounded by vineyards.
Third stop is at the museum of Lost Atlantis. an interactive museum created by George Koukoulas that was able to get in to the hearts of the guests … “Learn the story .. live the Myth” as he says… the museum is totally dedicated to Atlantis, so compared to Santorini. The hologram of Plato tells us the story, the myth, the secrets and the curiosities about this Myth. Interactive screens help you to discover more. The best is the 9 dimensions cinema where actually you get “in to the story” living on your skin the eruption of the Volcano. The museum has also a plastic reproduction of Atlantis as Plato said and a small souvenir shop.
After few hours of walking and discovering it comes the time to relax a bit… Perivolos is the next destination, where the guests will surely enjoy a cold beer sitting on the black sand beach so famous all over the world.
The bus tour continues around the island to discover more… a place that we really love is the small bay between Vlychada and the Red Beach, the stop in this area will be actually only for taking photos.
It comes the best of the tour, the sunset in Santorini is not just a sunset, it is an experience that lasts forever in your memories, in this tour we chose a location not so touristic and not so common… the lighthouse! We will take place in the small natural hill behind the lighthouse that stands as it was an Amphitheatre, to enjoy the magic sunset and small local picnic.
