Akrotiri: a journey to the prehistoric Aegean sea

private tour of Akrotiri (transportation from your hotel included)

This is a private tour in the excavations of the archaeological site of Akrotiri, one of the most important prehistoric settlements of the Aegean. The volcanic debris that covered it during the eruption of the 17th century BC sealed the town and preserved it in a perfect condition for about 3600 years. The excavation that is still carried out revealed a brilliant civilization with technology advanced in all aspects and especially in construction: multi-storey houses, decorated with avant-garde frescoes and equipped with a very advanced sewage network and all these. . . during the Bronze Age! Follow us on a journey to this incredible era and allow yourselves to "meet" the society that reached this high level of achievements approximately 3600 years ago!
