Top 7 Things to Do in Santorini, Greece, Santorini, Greece (B)

When we think about Greece islands, I believe Santorini is the first one that pops up in everyone’s mind. Santorini has a perfect combination of archeological sites, exotic beaches, an active volcano, breathtaking sunsets that are all part of its romantic and picturesque scenery.

To Akrotiri city it took around 40min to get there, and the bus stopped exactly in front of the entrance. The archeological site of Akrotiri, the first of my top seven things to do in Santorini, is one of the most important Minoan Bronze Age settlements of the Aegean Sea, and it transports visitors back to those ancient times. The city is a huge acclimatized hangar full of ruins from the fifteen millennium BC when it was a small and fisherman village.
