Tour Itinerary – Highlights of Santorini Tour

  • Oia Village

The small village perches atop cliffs at Santorini´s northern terminus. Your guide leads you up the narrow, cobblestone lanes, pointing out the brilliantly whitewashed buildings, shops, cafes and domed churches. There will be some free time to explore on your own.

  • Local Winery

Enjoy a taste of Santorini with a visit to one of the local wineries. Santorini´s rich volcanic soil combined with the rare assyrtiko variety of grape grown here produce a wine unique to this island.

  • Fira

Santorini´s largest town is a village of whitewashed houses clinging to steep volcanic cliffs. Accessible only by foot, Fira´s narrow cobblestone lanes lead uphill past shops, homes and cafes to a cable car, your final destination.

  • Panagia Episkopi Church

Dating from the 11th century, it is the oldest remaining Byzantine church on the island. It has withstood raids by pirates, earthquakes, volcano eruptions and a fire in 1915. It is believed that the Virgin Mary protected the holy icons from the fire. Unfortunately, 26 of these priceless icons were stolen from the church in 1982 and have never been recovered.

Special Notes – Highlights of Santorini Tour

The tour of Fira and Oia involves walking through narrow cobblestone streets with numerous flat steps, so low-heeled, comfortable shoes are recommended. Passengers with physical limitations should consider this.
The return to the ship will be by using the cable car in Fira Town to reach the port and then a tender. The cable car is reached by a long walk across Fira upper town along narrow cobble-stoned streets with an incline and steps. Low heeled shoes are recommended and passengers with physical limitations are requested to consider this.
Some shops, taverns and cafes in Fira and Oia close during April and November.
