It was very good. I would probably do a guided tour next time, as I feel there was so much information I missed. Beautifully preserved site and everyone is very kind and helpful.

About: Akrotiri

Located on the Greek island of Santorini (Thera), Akrotiri is one of the most spectacular and important archeological sites in all of Greece, which is really saying something!

Around 6,000 years old, these ancient ruins reveal some of the best-preserved remnants of Minoan civilization ever unearthed, with incredibly well-presevered examples of ceramics and ancient architecture.

Akrotiri was evacuated before a massive volcanic eruption destroyed the city and blanketed everything in ash, much like the plight of Pompeii.

Akrotiri's location, geological formation, and sudden violent demise have led many people to believe that it is actually the real city that the myth of the Lost City of Atlantis is based on.

So, it's probably best not to anger Poseidon while you visit!
