After being picked up from the designated meeting points, the excursion begins with the visit of the Prehistorical settlement of Akrotiri, located in the southern part of the island, a city that has remained alive for 3.500 years beneath the lava. The settlement (approx. 20 hectares) remained alive for 3.500 years beneath the lava and its ashes, the volcanic materials covered the entire island and the town itself protecting at the same time all the buildings and their contents through the ages. The first habitation at the site dates from the late Neolithic times (the 4th millennium B.C.) and thanks to the elaborate drainage system, the sophisticated multi-storied buildings with the magnificent wall-paintings, furniture and vessels found we can understand the great development and prosperity of theist civilization.
The tour will continue with the visit of Lost Atlantis, the first worldwide museum dedicated to the myth of the city of Atlantis, situated in Megalochori village. An interactive journey to discover more about the Minoan history of Santorini and all the evidence that connect Plato’s myth with the first volcanic eruption of the island. A unique experience that brings the philosopher Plato back to life in an animated hologram and give you the opportunity to talk with him about his life’s work. Included the 9D Cinema show that will allow you to feel with all your senses the destruction of the island.
