Look at this picture and tell me if you don't want to be there as soon as you can. Colours of Mediterranean will make you relax and think how different is this world to our world!

You will be transferred from the ship by colorful local kaiki (tenders) to Fira port, where you will meet your guide. Together you will go up the cliff to Fira by cable car. From here you will be lead to meet your awaiting motor coach. Your guide will explain the history of the island as your drive to the Antoniou winery. The building which houses the Antoniou winery has been salvaged and preserved in order to show the old way wine was once produced using the island's natural elements. Carved into the volcanic rock are the cave like vats which once held wine awaiting transport by pipes to ships hundreds of feet below in the port. Antique presses have been restored and are a classic example of post WWII engineering. After a guided tour of the winery, you are invited to sample some of the wines with local cheese and traditional snacks. Your guide will explain the history of the island on the drive to Santorini's highest peak, crowned by the Mt. Profitis Ilias monastery. Here you will have an ideal photo opportunity to capture the beauty of the island and get a full understanding of it's unique volcanic shape. Next you'll drive to Oia, a unique village on the northern most tip of the island. This dramatic village, built on a steep crest of the caldera, has many of its dwellings nestled into niches hewn from the volcanic rock. The village was once the home of wealthy seafarers, a fact still evident in their two story mansions painted pastel colors. Your local guide will walk with you among the narrow cobbled streets where you'll come across many tiny shops of local ceramic art, paintings and semi precious jewelry. Coffee shops perched on the edge of the cliffs offer spectacular views of Fira and the volcano below.
