The Village of Ia Fira and Winery

From the ship you will board a local tender and disembark after 15 minutes at the island's main port Athinios.

Here you will board your motorcoach and ascend the colorful rocky sides of a caldera wall while enjoying panoramic views of the island.

Once the top is reached you will make your way to the highest peak of Santorini (883 feet) to Mt. Profit Ilias where the monastery of the same name was built in 1712. From this point you have a magnificent view of the entire island.

Departing from the village of Pyrgos you will drive through traditional villages towards Ia on the northern end of Santorini.

On the way to Ia you will have the opportunity to see the different layers of lava that the volcano has produced over the years in every phase of its activity. After a drive of about 50 minutes you will arrive in the traditional village of Ia that is particularly well preserved. Its pristine white houses and brightly colored vaults, courtyards and mansions endow it with a special beauty.

Leaving the village of Ia you will be driven to a local winery for a small tour and wine tasting.

After the winery visit you will continue to the capital of the island Fira, where you will have free time to walk and browse in the local small shops and cafes.

You will return back to the ship by cable car.
