Description of the shared tour

Excavations at Santorini Akrotiri
Excavations at Santorini Akrotiri

Drive directly to Akrotiri excavations that have uncovered one of the most important prehistoric settlements of the Aegean. The first habitation dates from the Late Neolithic times (at least the 4th millennium BC). During the Early Bronze Age (3rd millennium BC), a sizable settlement was founded and in the Middle and early Late Bronze Age (ca. 20th-17th centuries BC) it was extended and gradually developed into one of the main urban centers and ports of the Aegean.

Admire the large extent of the settlement (ca. 20 hectares), the elaborate drainage system, the sophisticated multi-stored buildings with the magnificent wall-paintings, furniture and vessels, show its great development and prosperity. In contrast to the Minoan palaces in Crete, here findings indicate a culture with a more human face and a better distribution of wealth.

The settlement has been suggested as a possible inspiration for Plato’s story of Atlantis.
