Akrotiri is a great attraction of Santorini and one of the most important ancient sites. Is a village of great interest and carries a fascinating history. Akrotiri is located on the southern side of the island and it’s a quiet undeveloped village with unexplored beaches, magnificent sunsets and wonderful fish taverns. Apart from the beautiful collection of Frescos and other items excavated in the prehistoric site, which is one of the most important in Greece, Akrotiri has some of the best views on the island. Here you will find a very rare sight, the Red beach, the most scenic beach of the island due to its red and black volcanic rocks and the high red cliffs. The view alone is worth the visit. Unique of its kind with vivid frescoes and architecture which witnesses a rare glimpse of the urban life in the Minoan period, Akrotiri demonstrates the high level of culture of ancient Santorini.
