Your tour begins with a stop at the island's iconic caldera, a striking viewpoint. Enjoy views of staggered cliffs and rock layers dotted with whitewashed houses and blue domes. Then head to Akrotiri, a former, Minoan Bronze Age settlement, for more insight into the island's ancient history. Learn about the island's first inhabitants, who arrived there in 3000 BC.
