Santorini Day Tour from Crete by Santorini Palace

Santorini is the southern island of the Cyclades, with an area of 76 km square and a coastline of 70 km long. Many legends take place on this island, as it is called the "Lost Atlantis" or the "Pompeii of the Aegean".

You will visit the towns of Oia and Fira, famous for its beautiful white houses and stunning views. Then you can swim and refresh at the beach with black volcanic sand! You will have the opportunity to learn the fascinating history of this amazing place, take unique photos, and buy souvenirs! At every stop you will spend about 1.5 hours, 6 hours in total on Santorini island. The tour will be by air-conditioned bus with free time in each of the stops. On the ship you will spend 1 hour 45 minutes each way.
