Greek Pompeii

Located on Santorini's southwestern coastline, the small village of Akrotiri sits just a short walk from one of Europe's most significant Bronze Age archaeological sites. In 1627 a massive volcanic eruption destroyed a Minoan settlement located here, burying the remains of many everyday objects and preserving for posterity the ancient way of life of a long-gone culture. The settlement, once an important port city on the Aegean, likely served as an inspiration for Plato's story of Atlantis, mentioned in two of the philosopher's major works. The modern village of Akrotiri now draws history buffs and vacationers from around the globe and offers easy proximity to a series of red and black volcanic beaches. In the build up to your vacation in Akrotiri, plan trip itinerary minutiae using the visitor reviews, staff write-ups, and custom search fields on our Greece trip itinerary maker.
