Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

A narrated drive around the spectacular island of Santorini offers a wealth of photo opportunities and panoramic views from a wide variety of venues. Thrill to the views from Mt. Prophet Elijah, the highest point on the island at 2,000 feet above sea level. The area shares its name with the monastery that stands on its peak. Continue to another majestic viewpoint, the awesome Santorini caldera, formed 3,500 years ago after a monumental volcanic explosion in the Aegean Sea. The distinct exterior of the Agios Nektarios Church makes for a wonderful photo opportunity and the unique black sand beaches of Kamari are the highlight of this cosmopolitan resort town. Your last stop is the village of Fira where you will have the choice to remain with the tour and return to port in the motorcoach, or spend independent time in Fira and return to the tender via aerial cable car. This latter option involves considerable walking and an aerial cable car ride back to the tender.

Special Notes:

This tour ends at Athinios Port where you will be tendered back to the ship. Before returning to Athinios at the end of the tour, passengers have the option of remaining in Fira and returning to the harbor via cable car. Passengers who take the option of remaining in Fira must take into consideration that to reach the cable car, they must travel a considerable distance uphill over narrow cobblestone streets and steps. Passengers should also expect lines at the cable car; the wait can be in excess of 60 minutes if multiple ships are in port.

Some stores, tavernas and cafés in Fira close during the month of November.
