  • When we read that Akrotiri was older than the famous Pompeii, it became a must-see for us. We love history and it was incredible to look at the ruins and even walk in some of the ruins!! Everything is housed under a large roof so this was a nice break from the heat. Do not pay money to park in parking lot across the street. Just drive a little further towards the beach and park on the street! Even my six year old enjoyed the tour although she had a hard time grasping the concept of "super old" and "do not touch" 😂

  • Very interesting place to have a look around. Best done with a guide to explain the history of the place and exactly what you're looking at. The site is very well preserved and has a roof cover so you're not in the sun all day which keeps it cooler.

  • - historically speaking, a very interesting place - the truth is, for 12€ entrance you won't get that much - I asked 2 times whether there is a brochure, but I was assured that it is all self-explaining. I went in and ended up reading descriptions of what I'm seeing. I suggest you print out the Wikipedia article and read it there, because the culture and traditions of that place is left out completely

  • Very interesting, especially if you get a guide. Sometimes you can't really tell what it is that you're looking at. Just like with all archaeological sites, with a guide to explain, the visit is a lot more interesting. Also, the site is very well preserved, inside a really nice structure, which makes the visit more comfortable.

  • Interesting site of archaeology. It was great to see such well preserved ruins of Greece. The volcanic eruption of Santorini both destroyed and kept the city for millennium. I agree with other folks that a tour guide would really bring this to life with their experience and stories.
