Ancient Akrotiri

Ancient Akrotiri

Thousands of years ago, in 1613 BC, a volcanic eruption buried the ancient Minoan city of Akrotiri underneath a layer of volcanic ash. This Bronze Age settlement was hidden from the world until 1967, when excavators discovered its well-preserved remnants. See it for yourself with a day trip to Ancient Akrotiri.
