Just 15 minutes from Athinios lies Megalochori, the largest village on the Santorini plain. Known as the village of intellectuals, Megalochori is characterized by hundreds of small white houses, as well as vineyards and beautiful churches.
Walking through the village along narrow alleyways, you will encounter a variety of traditional mansions and visit the quaint Church of the Virgin Mary, with its collection of ecclesiastic artifacts.
Continue to Eborio Village to visit the ruins of the medieval Fort Kasteli.
Your final stop will be at the volcanic beach of Perissa -- a seemingly endless stretch of intriguing black sand. At the heart of summertime entertainment, Perissa is the most popular beach on the island with a wide variety of taverns, restaurants and beach bars. You will have free time here for a swim and to enjoy this famous beach.
After your transfer to Thira, your tour ends with a ten-minute walk down to the cable car station. Guests who wish to stay in town to shop or explore independently are welcome to do so, but must make their own way back to the ship.
Wear your swimsuit under your clothing; bring a towel, sunscreen and a hat. Expect crowding and long lines at the cable car station.
