Ancient Thira - Review

The Ancient Thera lies on a coast of Santorini Island. This gorgeous ruin is a reminiscent of the past that blends seamlessly into the present. Discovered through painstaking excavation, this beautiful ancient wonderland is a must visit while in Santorini.

Almost the entire city, including the central city, several buildings as well as the ancient cemetery or necropolis can be seen. The stone structures have a variety that deserve to be explored. Located closed to Kamari city, this beautiful city is quite interesting for both culture seekers as well as history lovers.

It is recommended that you take a guide along as there are quite a few interesting stories to be heard about the area. A walking tour of this area is sure to be an amazing experience.

Ancient Thira, Santorini Reviews

  • If you get lucky enough to go to the Greek islands, Santorini is compulsory! It offers everything you can imagine: beautiful beaches, amazing historical villages, food that leaves any foodie blown away and breathless views. Here are 5 tips: 1. Avoid peak times... gets too crazy spring or autumn are the best 2. Go sailing: find a boat that takes you around the island and jump into the water every chance you get 3. Sample every food you can 4. Hire a care and lap the island 5. Learn even the most basic Greek! Everyone appreciated it! Santorini is a tourist hit spot - but planned right, just perfect!

  • Wonderful place is Santorini, Greece. It's a delight to watch the houses so well connected and planned. Magnificent scenic beauty to watch the views. The night vision is more clearer and better to watch as the lights are switched on. The province of Santorini has many such breathtaking views.

  • Small enough to feel like you can get a sense of the whole island (and feel like your totally disconnected from the world). That Aegean blue is something else. And the caldera is breathtaking, especially with morning light.

  • Make sure you visit Santorini when you go to Greece. It is magic! An island that is a volcano, what's more dreamy? Make sure to try the naturally sweet local red wine, sweet tomatoes and lava. It is a must. The hotel with its sea views are great and the people are friendly

  • A dream like island. Amazing to see homes stacked over each other on the cliff edge. Better to visit late evening with sun setting and a dinner table seating outside on the cliff.
