Santorini Shore Excursions

Santorini, officially known as Thira is located in the Aegean Sea about 120 miles south of mainland Greece. Around the 16th century BC a major volcanic eruption devastated the settlements of what was once a single island. This eruption created multiple islands with the original crater now filled with the sea. The result of these events created one of the most idyllic Greek islands.

Today cruise ships visit throughout the summer making Santorini shore excursions a highlight of many cruise vacations. Most Santorini shore trips focus on the two whitewashed main towns, Fira and Oia, which each cling to the cliffs about the underwater crater below. Anther popular Santorini shore excursion to consider is a visit to Akrotiri. This ancient village was buried in the eruption and today is an outstanding archaeological site.
