Firstly, upon your pick up from your hotel we will guide you to Akrotiri, a settlement on Santorini that was covered in ash about 1500 BC.
Follow your official licensed guide through the city to discover how it was organized during your trip. Learn about the sad circumstances that buried the city following a volcanic explosion and how this led to its preservation.
As you go past private homes and public buildings, look for traces of a sophisticated infrastructure to learn about how people lived 4,000 years ago and optionally the unique finding retracted from Akrotiri excavations at the Prehistoric Museum in Fira.
Another unforgettable experience is awaiting at the Lost Atlantis 9D Experience Museum. Through interactive films, explore all the evidence that links Plato's lost Atlantis tale to the island's volcano eruption. Explore the world's largest Atlantis diorama and experience its daily life through virtual time windows using augmented reality. Through an interactive fresco, follow Plato's voyage that inspired him to write about the perfect city.
View a holographic simulation of Santorini's geological progression from prehistoric times to the current day. Plato, the Greek philosopher, appears as an active hologram. Interact with him and inquire about his philosophy and the possibility that Santorini is the genesis of the Atlantis legend.
In a 9D experience, relive the earthquake, tsunami, and volcanic eruption that led to the destruction of Atlantis with all of your senses. Inside an active volcano, you can walk on lava. Get suited up and pose for photos like an Atlantean.
Afterwards, we will drop you off at your hotel or any other desired destination.
