Experience the absolute splendor of Santorini, while strolling through some of the most scenic and quiet villages of the island.

Visit a traditional winery to taste the local volcanic wines, or enjoy a mythical music journey at the unique space of Symposion by Laponta (closed on Mondays).
Your local guide will take you to the countryside where you will get to see locals still living there, and learn about professions and crafts that no longer exist. Stroll by amazing cave houses and capture the essence of Santorini as it used to be, before being wrecked by a massive earthquake. Enjoy a trip back in time, and let the aura of Santorini’s villages enhance your senses.
