Santorini Villages Walking Tour

Scenic streets of Pyrgos
One of the best ways to experience Santorini is by walking through the island's most scenic and peaceful villages. With the help of a local guide, this tour takes you to historic mansions, authentic rural houses, and abandoned neighborhoods lost in time. After savoring the scenery and history, you'll visit a traditional winery and microbrewery to taste local volcanic wines and fresh beer.

You'll start by strolling through the countryside, stopping to chat with a few locals and learn about historic island professions and crafts. Along the way, you'll admire authentic cave houses as your guide shares stories about Santorini's essence before its famous earthquake changed it all. Enjoy this trip back in time along cobbled and ancient paths, weaving through the settlements of Pyrgos, Exo Gonia, and Mesa Gonia.

After a morning of walking, rest your feet at a local winery. You'll taste traditional Santorini wine uniquely grown in volcanic soil. Then, visit a microbrewery to try fresh, local beers. Compare the taste of the two and learn how the soil impacts the flavor.
