Detailed Itinerary

Day 13
Wine Tasting / Phira

From Naxos, take the ferry to Santorini (Thira) Island, arriving around 4:00 pm. As you approach Santorini, behold the stunning sight of Santorini’s dramatic five-mile-wide caldera. This remarkable island is a collapsed volcano, its towns and villages built atop the caldera’s rim. In the late afternoon, enjoy wine tasting in Santorini’s magnificent capital, Phira (Fira), perched on a cliff over the blue sea, with bustling squares. Phira features an abundance of the striking architecture typical of the Cyclades—whitewashed flat-roofed houses with blue doors, domed churches, and verandas spilling over with flowers.
