Excursion to Santorini from Chania. Get aboard a modern ship and take advantage of the proximity of Crete to Santorini, the jewel island of the Aegean Sea. See one of the most beautiful and romantic Greek islands! The island is built on the remains of volcanic soil, the eruption of which is said to be the reason for the Minoan civilization extinction.
The eruption of Thera, the capital of Santorini is for many the reason for the myth of the lost city of Atlantis: Major attractions on this trip from Chania to Santorini include Oia, Kamari, Perissa, Imerovigli, Therasia, and Pyrgos.

Stops are being done to Oia & Fira in order to admire the scenery and the amazing views. Afterward, you either stay at Fira, the capital of the island or keep exploring Santorini’s beaches at Perissa or Perivolos.
