Best of Santorini Sightseeing
There are quite a few locations all around Santorini that should not be left out of any sightseeing itinerary. Starting from the impressive archaeological excavation of Akrotiri, a complete ancient settlement of a highly advanced civilization that was buried intact under volcanic ash and lava. Ancient Thera is another important part of Santorini’s ancient history, with many of its findings on display at the Museum of Prehistoric Thera at Fira. Then, the medieval aspect of Santorini’s history has a lot to offer to the inquisitive traveler as well. Start from the medieval Kastelia, the castle-like cities of Pyrgos, Emporio, Akrotiri and Oia to see up close what it was like to live under the constant threat of pirates. For impressive views to the famous sunset visit Oia, Imerovigli and Skaros Rock, whereas for a more authentic peek into Santorinian living look for the villages of Megalochori and Vothonas. If you are looking for the island’s hidden gems, then the Lighthouse of Akrotiri and the Monastery of Profitis Ilias are definitely spots you should look for. The concierge of Ananda Infinity Villa can help you find all Santorini’s major attractions, and arrange helpful services such as private transfers, guided tours, photography sessions and more.
