TRAVEL IN TIME AND UNRAVEL SANTORINI’S HISTORY

Discover the rich history of Santorini island, which begins from 18 c. B.C. Visit the Prehistoric Site of Akrotiri, in which the latest excavation revealed a Minoan Bronze Age settlement with the Minoan civilization due to inscriptions in Linear A, and close similarities in artifact and fresco styles. A must-see site, also, is the Ancient Thera, an antique city on a ridge of the steep, 360 m high Messavouno mountain. It was named after the mythical ruler of the island, Theras, and was inhabited from the 9th century BCE until 726 CE.
