Greek Pompeii

Located on Santorini's southwestern coastline, the small village of Akrotiri sits just a short walk from one of Europe's most significant Bronze Age archaeological sites.
Family-friendly places like Kamari Beach and Red Beach will thrill your kids. There's lots more to do: add some adventure to your tour with Santorini Sea Kayak - Day Tours, delve into the distant past at Akrotiri, enjoy the sand and surf at Caldera Beach, and get engrossed in the history at La Ponta.

To see more things to do, traveler tips, and more tourist information, go to the Akrotiri tour itinerary maker site.

Brussels, Belgium to Akrotiri is an approximately 8.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of car and ferry; or do a combination of train, bus, taxi, and ferry. You'll lose 1 hour traveling from Brussels to Akrotiri due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Brussels in July, things will get a bit warmer in Akrotiri: highs are around 35°C and lows about 27°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 4th (Tue) to allow time to drive to Oia.

Wine Island
Known for dramatic views and romantic sunsets, the island of Santorini draws visitors with its long string of black, white, and red beaches. The largest and most significant of a small group of volcanic islands located just 200 km (120 mi) southeast of Greece's mainland, Santorini boasts just over 15,000 permanent residents. Created by a massive volcanic eruption that likely destroyed a single large island, the archipelago still features an active volcano, which saw its last eruption in the 1950s. The easiest way to explore Santorini's craggy coastline is on foot. Start by visiting the archaeological sites on the island's southwestern side, which offer a chance to discover the area's ancient past with unobstructed views of the famed volcano.
