Akrotiri Archaeological Site

Dating back to the Minoan Bronze Age, the historic settlement of Akrotiri in Santorini is a fine example of the thriving days for the islanders of antiquity. Until it was vanished by the enormous volcanic eruptions of 1,600 BC, Akrotiri was a commercial and cultural hub for Santorini. It revealed the thriving times and the glorious past, offering a glimpse at the everyday life of the people living there. 

A place filled with life, Akrotiri was a huge market where merchants would sell their goods and a meeting point for everyone. Due to its location in the heart of the Aegean, Santorini and more importantly the settlement of Akrotiri had been easily accessible. As a result, people from all over the world sailed there to engage in business and become parts of a worldwide culture. 

From the moment you step your foot in the archaeological site of Akrotiri, you will be blown away by the excellent structure and the well-preserved spaces. There are houses with two storeys, columns and warehouses, in an inspiring setting bathed in natural sunlight. Excavations are still taking place, but the site is open to the public for a unique opportunity to explore the past of Santorini!
