You’ll start your morning Santorini walking tour by meeting your local guide in Imerovigli, one of the three suspended villages you’ll explore today with us.
As drinking coffee is a daily ritual in Greece, you’ll firstly stop at a kafeneion, a traditional wooden-table cafe, for a freshly brewed traditional coffee accompanied with a homemade local sweet made from fresh fruits straight from a family orchard. Learn all about Greece’s coffee culture, mingle with locals, and admire stunning views over the Aegean Sea.
Continue your stroll along the footpaths of Imerovigli, the highest of the caldera villages, and hear stories about Santorini’s once-thriving civilizations, ghost fortified towns, the myth of the Lost City of Atlantis, and the numerous conquerors through the ages.
Then, you’ll enter the picture-pretty Firostefani village that sits atop the breathtaking Santorini’s eyebrow-shaped caldera cliffs. While winding your way through Firostefani’s charming alleys with the whitewashed houses, the blue-domed churches, and the bougainvilleas, you’ll grab a delicious organic ice-cream on the go.
Following your guide’s directions, you’ll discover the marvel of Santorini’s architecture, the Blue Dome of the Virgin Mary Orthodox Church. Definitely, this spot is the most-photographed postcard place of the island. Capture some of your best photos here, with the church and the caldera in the background, and blow up your Instagram account!
It’s almost noon, so why not relax your muscles in a local-favorite place where you sample local flavors and tastes? Savor organic seasonal tapas and quench your thirst with a freshly-brewed local beer that follows a local original procedure in the making using volcanic stones for filtration and local Aegean raw ingredients, while admiring endless views over the island’s active volcano. ‘’Yamas’’!
You’ll then finish up our Santorini walking tour by exploring appealing Fira, Santorini’s main town, where you’ll pass by workshops and showrooms of local artists and artisans and visit a deli with flavors and products from every corner of Greece
From our last stop, you’ll have the option to head off on your own (your guide will be more than happy to advise you on your next move), or continue with us on our unique ‘’It’s Santorini wine o’clock!’ tour for some premium Santorini wine, epic views, and unique cultural experiences!
