Akrotiri

— 2 nights

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.
On the 17th (Fri), delve into the distant past at Akrotiri, then enjoy the sand and surf at Red Beach, and then get engrossed in the history at La Ponta. Here are some ideas for day two: see the interesting displays at Tomato Industrial Museum, D.Nomikos, stroll through Perissa Black Sand Beach, and then enjoy the sand and surf at Kamari Beach.

Expect a bit warmer weather when traveling from Montevideo in September: highs in Akrotiri hover around 32°C, while lows dip to 24°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 19th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.

Wine Island
Known for dramatic views and romantic sunsets, the island of Santorini draws visitors with its long string of black, white, and red beaches. The largest and most significant of a small group of volcanic islands located just 200 km (120 mi) southeast of Greece's mainland, Santorini boasts just over 15,000 permanent residents. Created by a massive volcanic eruption that likely destroyed a single large island, the archipelago still features an active volcano, which saw its last eruption in the 1950s. The easiest way to explore Santorini's craggy coastline is on foot. Start by visiting the archaeological sites on the island's southwestern side, which offer a chance to discover the area's ancient past with unobstructed views of the famed volcano.
