A short drive brings you to Athinios port. Here, you will visit Megalohori -- a typical Santorini town. Admire some beautiful examples of Cycladic architecture -- white cubic houses and countless churches with blue domes and distinctive bell towers. You will visit the most important Byzantine monument on Santorini -- the Orthodox Church of Panagia Episkopi.
Heading north towards the world-renowned village of Oia, learn more about the volcanic nature of this picturesque island. Oia is a charming city, with distinctive blue roofs, old two-story mansions and narrow cobblestone streets. The shops sell handmade ceramics, paintings and semi-precious stones. You will enjoy some free time to explore Oia.
Returning to Thira town, you will be provided with a cable car ticket in order to descend to the Old Port on your own. Guests who wish to stay in town to shop or explore independently are welcome to do so and can use their cable car ticket to return to the ship at any time.
