Day 5: Explore the beautiful village of Akrotiri which is at one end of the C-Shaped island (Oia being the other end). Visit the Akrotiri's Archeological site and marvel at how the red sand of the Red Beach perfectly contrasts the cobalt blue Mediterranean waters. Head over to the gorgeous Santo Winery for sampling rare greek wines and enjoy yet another splendid Santorini sunset. You could take a winery tour!
As soon as someone hears the name of Santorini, what flashes in front of the eyes are the monochrome picture of this beach town bathed in white and blue. Only here santorini is mentioned because of its historical significance and the Akrotiri Excavations it boasts of. The excavations at Akrotiri have uncovered one of the most important prehistoric settlements of the Aegean. The volcanic materials had enveloped the entire island and the town itself when it erupted long ago. These materials, however, have been protected up to date the buildings and their contents, similar to Pompeii and attracts throngs of avid historians.
