Akrotiri came to an abrupt end in approximately 1613 BC with a catastrophic volcanic eruption that buried the Bronze Age settlement in a carpet of ash. Beginning in 1967, excavations of the Minoan town revealed buildings, drainage systems, and pottery, but no human remains or gold valuables, indicating locals had time to flee before disaster hit.

You’d be missing out on some of the best views in Europe if you didn’t walk the caldera-top path at least once. Santorini is a pretty amazing place.

You also have tiny towns full of buildings dressed in white, adding to the otherworldly utopia feeling. The walking path is a mix of paved, pedestrian streets and dirt hiking trails. On our way from Fira to Oia you will pass through the towns of Firostefani and Imerovigli and enjoy some of the most beautiful views of the island
