Your tour will begin in Fira, with a visit the newly built Prehistoric Museum of Thira, the second largest pre-historical museum in Greece. The museum houses finds from the excavation site of Akrotiri, as well as other sites on the island. The exhibition is structured in four units, referring to the history of research at Thira, the geology of Thira, the island's history from the Late Neolithic to the Late Cycladic I period and the heyday of the city at Akrotiri. The exhibits include fossils of plants that flourished before the human habitation of Thira as well as archeological objects dating back to 3300 B.C.

After our visit, we’ll drive through the countryside to visit Oia. This traditional Greek village of whitewashed cubes is perched impossibly high on cliffs at the north west tip of the island. Here, take in the stunning views of the island from one of the charming cafés or stroll above the rooftops of the homes carved into the cliffs and gaze into the deep blue waters of the caldera far below.After Oia village, we’ll return to the town of Fira. Our tour ends here. The rest of the day is yours to wander the twisting alleys and pedestrian walkways of Fira Town, filled with galleries, jewellery shops, and Greek souvenirs.
Please note that on Mondays the Museum is closed. We can substitute it with a visit to Pyrgos village and a local winery instead.
