Day 5: The day is yours! Head to the beach to soak up some sun, sip a cup of coffee on the waterfront promenade, or explore the town’s winding streets as you weave in and out of whitewashed buildings.

Day 8: Uncover the past at Akrotiri, an ancient city buried and preserved in volcanic ash that is commonly referred to as the "Minoan Pompeii." Take a peek into the 15th century BC and explore the town. Head through a landscape of vineyards and volcanic cliffs to Oia, a seaside village with the island’s best viewpoints. Next, visit a local winery and enjoy the famous wines of Santorini. The rest of the afternoon is yours to relax and explore more of this Mediterranean gem.
