Description - What to expectTake a bus sightseeing tour around Santorini and visit traditional villages and places that will stun you with their beauty and charm. Visit the oldest Byzantine church of the island, built in 1115, from the ruins of a 6th-century church. The church is full of wall-paintings, and it is supposed to be one of the most historical monuments.
Next drive to Mesa Gonia village, considered to be the center of wine production on the whole island. The houses have not been restored since the great earthquake of 1956, so you will have the opportunity to see this settlement and how life was before this dramatic event.
Continue to Pyrgos village, once the capital of Santorini, and one of the most charming villages of the island. Stroll around the village and capture with your camera, its beautiful churches, and magnificent views once you reach the top of the village.
Your last stop is at Oia village, once a thriving village built from captains and sailors, located on the western part of the island with the most famous sunset.
