Visit the post-minoan town of Akrotiri, with its magnificent wall drawings which used to decorate its houses.
Visit the Prehistorical Museum of Thira which hosts archaeological findings dating back
to the Neolithic Age up to the 17thCentury BC – it is the second largest prehistorical museum in Greece,
after the one of Vergina.
The Archaeological Museum with findings of the Geometric and Roman Years is also worth visiting.
Go around the caldera on a fisherman’s boat, visit the islands New and Old Kammeni and Thirasia.
It is most definitely worth walking on the crater of the volcano (only 30mins away from
the port of New Kammeni where the boat drops you off).
Light clothes and sunscreen are highly recommended, as well as loads of water and durable,
soft shoes for this particular excursion!
