Santorini Sightseeing & Wine Tasting Tour

Santorini Sightseeing & Wine Tasting Tour

When you visit the Greek island of Santorini, there is a lot for a wine enthusiast to do. Not only does Santorini sightseeing offer you the opportunity to visit local wineries for tours and wine tastings. Tours to these and other Santorini sights are available through a single, all-inclusive Santorini wine tour.

Tour Itinerary

When you first take off on your Santorini wine adventure, you will meet with your guide at your hotel or the departure point in Fira village, near the cruise port. After that, each tour goes first to the Santorini Caldera, where you will be introduced to the landscape. You will also have the opportunity to appreciate the unique view of the island before moving on to the rest of the village of Imerovigli and learning about the local history, including the use of Skaros as a lookout point to guard against pirates.

After that, you will continue on through the countryside until you come to the village of Oia. Built in the northern part of the caldera rim, it is the single most photographed location on the island and a favorite place for many visitors on the Santorini wine tour. As you tour the island and see more of the caldera in Oia, you will notice those entire buildings are carved out of the face of the volcanic rock, creating a uniquely picturesque view.

Next up is a stop it Firostefani to see the famous Blue Dome Church, which you might recognize from its popularity on postcards from Santorini. After that, it is time to head to the peak of Prophet Elias. The 2,000-foot summit is also home to a Greek Orthodox monastery that your guide will be happy to introduce you to.

After the monastery, the first of the winery visits commences with a tour of the Venetsanos Winery, where you will have the opportunity to try a few of the local wines while you learn the secrets of the local winemaking trade. After that, it is time to go to Red Beach, where the volcanic sand stands out in striking contrast to the sea and sky.

The final Santorini sights you will see include the Black Beach, and there is an optional lunch before a shuttle takes you back to your hotel.
