Description

Start your off-road experience and discover the Medieval castle of Emporio. Constructed in the mid-15th century by the Venetians to shield themselves from the pirate invasions. Stroll through the interior of this well-maintained fortified settlement with interesting architecture, quaint ambiance, and beautiful colors. The scenery reminds a labyrinth with very narrow streets, arches and houses built side by side. It is considered one of the most beautiful landmarks and a must-see site of Santorini.

Afterward, follow a small road towards the hilltop above the village of Emporio. Along the rim see the 8 traditional windmills and an isolated whitewashed chapel on the edge of the cliff. A stunning location with an open view, suitable for panoramic pictures and a wonderful sunset.

Continue to Santorini Arts Factory, a former tomato cultivation & production facility, which has been transformed into a modern Museum. Learn about Santorini’s famous cherry tomato, which is thicker-skinned, sweeter, and smaller than the garden variety because of the island’s volcanic soil and lack of water. Take a free guided tour through the old equipment & other antiques, learn the history of tomato production and taste the tomato paste.

Visit a family farm and relax by tasting homemade products such as The local Fava, sun-dried tomato, capers, caper leaves, tomato paste, traditional sweets, and the family wine. The hostess of the farm will escort you around the property from the volcanic vineyard to the family cellar and reveal secrets about wine production procedure, by stomping the grapes. Sample different varieties of Santorini grapes, enjoy your Greek coffee, and experience the hospitality of a traditional local family.

Nearby the family farm is the lighthouse. Standing on the southernmost edge of Santorini is quite impressive for the view to the Aegean sea and the scenic pathways surrounding it. A stunning location for memorable pictures and a unique sunset experience away from the crowds.

Sunset tour starts at 4pm or 5pm and includes an amazing sunset experience either from the windmills hilltop or the lighthouse.
