Caldera / Oia 6hours (every day)
We leave the port of Athinios every day to embark on the traditional boat for our visit of active craters of the volcano on the top of the island of Nea Kameni, in Greek means "new burnt"... where we will stop for about 1 1/2 H.
Then we sail to Palea Kameni, “old burnt”, where thermal springs provide natural warm-water bathing. While the surrounding water and beaches may be cold, and winds can be daunting. Our stop will be about 30m. Next destination will be Thirassia which is a typical cycladic village with a way of life as it used to be before the invasion of tourism. Tiny houses of various colours give a special character to these small settlements. Is an ideal place to taste some of the traditional plates of Santorini (lunch is not included in the price), to swim or to discover the simple village of Manolios by donkey. Here our stop will be about 1 ½ - 2H. When we arrive in our last destination the assistant will inform you the pick up point and the time that our buses depart (that depence sunset time) . The village is approximately 150 meters above sea level. This distance covered or walking the traditional steps on feet (250 steps) or by donkeys. Oia was severely damaged in the 1956 earthquake and much work has been involved to implement its restoration. The beauty of Oia is unsurpassed. In fact, it is almost impossible to describe in words. Small white houses tier the hillside, interspersed by splashes of rich okra, deep fuchsia, cobalt blue, oyster pink and earthy red. Oia is one of the most photographed places in Greece. It has inspired artists, poets and every visitor who visits Santorini. Oia is best known for breathtaking sunsets; if truth be told, sunrise in Oia is also magical. In Oia there are two types of dwellings, the cave houses dug into the volcanic rock on the Caldera cliffs, and the Captains houses. The cave houses used to be the homes of ship crews, whereas the Captains houses belonged to the affluent class of ship owners. Many of the churches in Oia were dedicated to sailors. The time of go back has come.. we will disembark at the port of Athinios with the greatest memories
