Full of hidden coves and snorkeling spots, Santorini’s gorgeous coastline is best seen from the water. This catamaran cruise takes you to a series of beaches and landmarks that can only be reached by boat, with time to soak in the island’s volcanic hot springs, too. Plus, with two tour times to choose from and round-trip transport, food, and snorkeling gear all included, this tour is extremely convenient for any traveler wanting to add it to their itinerary.

The Archeology Museum was a very short visit as they only had one exhibition open and it was only in Greek and French. To be fair, we were told that when we went in and it only cost €3 but it was still disappointing. Looking through the reviews here, a lot of the photos are actually from the Prehistoric Museum of Thera.

This is a very small museum with an admission price of €2/person. It is one small room, with mainly displays dedicated to a French archeologist. All signage is in Greek and French. This should be so much better. The “caretaker” was a little surly also, like he did not want us inside.

It’s €2 entry for a small one room exhibition with descriptions only in Greek and French. Spend the money to the prehistoric museum instead.

Or thou it’s only a one room museum with only a few items, it’s dedicated to an archaeologist who spent all his life to explore the Santorini island and to find the Kiklad culture traces of the early and middle Minoan bronze period So good to visit this place to honor this person and to see a few but interesting findings and the history of exploring

This small oldfashioned museum is still closed for a much needed complete renovation. It only has a small room open with a photo exhibition in greek and french language, on a french archaeologist. On display are a few items from the vast and interesting collection of artefacts from excavations all around Santorini, but NOT objects from Akrotiri. The collection is in storage until the Archeological Museum reopens. I was promised it would reopen in summer of 2019,but was recently told "Maybe in 2020"... Many don't observe there are TWO museums in Fira! There is this unknown small, now closed Archeological Museum, located close to the CABLECAR, and the modern worldfamous Museum of Prehistoric Thera, located close to the Cathedral and the Busstation - and THAT is where all the objects fom Akrotiri are on display, and the Museum most ppl want to visit (but unfortunately many get those two museums mixed up and visit the wrong one and get disappointed!)
