Some say the Lost City of Atlantis is Akrotiri on Santorini, Greece.

 

Long believed to be the “Lost City of Atlantis,” the archaeological site of Akrotiri on Santorini has seen plenty of historians, archaeologists and geologists come and go for years—nearly seven years, in fact. Now reopen to the public, Louis Cruises is digging in with an Akrotiri Village & Excavations excursion to take voyagers straight to the heart of this ancient city.

During the half-day excursion, your clients will explore the ruins of Akrotiri, destroyed around 1650 B.C. by an eruption of the Thira Volcano. Despite the destruction, they’ll see the buildings and city squares of the once-busy town, along with multi-story edifices and famous frescoes including Saffron Gatherers in the Xeste 3 ritual building or the Young Princess in the West House.

The Akrotiri Village & Excavations excursion is priced at $91 for adults, $58 for children, available on 4-day Aegean Legends sailings aboard the Louis Majesty. For more information, call (877) 568-4787 or visit louiscruises.com.
