A Visit to the Archaeological Site of Akrotiri
Greece is a splendid country filled with glorious past and places of significant historic value. Among the most notable civilizations in Greece was developed and thrived in Cyclades. Santorini was the center of the Cycladic civilization, which evolved and became a hub of commerce and marine life. People from all over the world back then reached the shores of Santorini and exchanged merchandise, sold and bought goods. And one of the most important coastlines where commerce bloomed was Akrotiri.
Up till now, Akrotiri remains a place where the past is depicted most eloquently. The archaeological site still reminds travelers of how life was like in that very spot of the island, thousands of years ago. Upon setting foot on the site, you find yourself surrounded by ruins of the market and the center of daily life. It is assumed that the outstanding catastrophe that took place with the volcanic eruption and the tsunami that followed was the main cause of this civilization’s deterioration. But even now, you can still feel the aura of the glorious past surrounding you in Akrotiri. If you take the guided tour, you will learn a lot about the ancient civilization and you will be able to admire the rare findings at the archaeological museum on the site. Of course, most excavations have been moved to the museum at Fira.

It is a splendid opportunity to combine a daily trip to Akrotiri for sightseeing at the archaeological site, along with the enjoyment of a hiking trip surrounded by nature’s wonders. Akrotiri is by far one of the most beautiful settlements on the island and you ought to visit the Lighthouse and apparently the archaeological site in the area for a unique experience!
