Rooftops of Santorini, Greece, yacht charter

Santorini, Greece

There are many different ways to arrive in Santorini Island, Greece, however; arriving by private charter yacht cruising into the inner harbor Caldera is the most extraordinary. The present Caldera was created sometime around 1645 BC, by a huge volcanic eruption, during which volcanic ash and debris covered an ancient and very wealthy Minoan trading city near present day Akrotiri, Santorini.  The disappearance of this city, may be the basis of the legend of the “Lost City of Atlantis”.  After cruising into the Caldera in Santorini by charter yacht, head ashore to explore the Akrotiri Excavations, where extraordinary wall murals depicting Blue Monkeys were found.

Ancient Greek Ruins at the Archaeological Island of Delos

Delos, the center of the Cyclades, has been inhabited since at least the 3rd millennium B.C. As did the Hellenic Nation, this island rose in importance and around 480 BC, became the center of the Delian League. The Delian League located their treasury on here solidifying the importance of this island in the ancient world. Today Delos is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the most important archeological sites in the world. This island, located just next to Mykonos is open to visitors 12 hours during the day, every day of the week. Visiting on a private yacht charter, is so easy.  This island is certainly not to be missed.

Santorini Excavations

Akrotiri Excavations

Explore the many secrets of the magical mystical Cycladic Island of Santorini, Greece, when cruising the Cycladic Island chain on a luxury crewed yacht charter, as tucked away on the Island of Santorini, excavations continue revealing the remains of an ancient wealthy trading city. This is a city lost in time; covered by ash and debris in the massive volcanic eruption in the 1600’s BC when the island blew its top, literally. It was in 1967 that excavations began in earnest, and still continue at a site in Akrotiri on the island of #Santorini where only 5% of this ancient city is said to be revealed to date. The ruins are fascinating to see, and excavated artifacts are on display at the Archeological Museum in Fira. Include both the #Akrotiri Archeological Site and Archeological Museum in Fira on a land tour when visiting the #GreekIsland of Santorini on a crewed sailing yacht or mega yacht charter.

The lost city was discovered in the 1800’s in fields in an area of the island known today as Akrotiri.  As the origin of the civilization that built this extraordinary city with three story apartment buildings, running water and a city sewer system was unknown, the excavations are now known as Akrotiri by their location on the island.  Today only a small area of what was once an extensive wealthy trading city has been excavated.  That which has been excavated, based on excavations in other parts of the world, is now felt to have been a wealthy Minoan trading city, that clearly evacuated the city before the final and most devastating volcanic eruption on Santorini Island covered the abandoned all for a city lost in time.

Windmills of Mykonos

Cruising through the Cycladic Islands on a luxury yacht charter in Greece includes the Greek Islands of Santorini, and Mykonos, considered by many to be two of the top Greek Islands to visit out of over 6000 islands and islets. It is the Cycladic Islands where the well-known cubist white buildings with cobalt blue trim are found, in the old Choras on each island, with little walking streets. The Greek Cycladic Islands are the only island chain seriously affected, however by the Meltemi Winds which can blow at any time from May to October. So that on a #crewedyachtcharter, cruising through the #CycladicIslands is a #yacht charter itinerary only if the Meltemi Winds allow.

Temple of Apollo in antique city of DidymaTemple of Apollo Ruins

Charter today cruising along what were, in the Ancient World: water highways and trading routes.  Cities sprang up in protected harbors which were home to civilization after civilization through the centuries, and which are still today, protected anchorages and harbors to visit on a crewed charter yacht. An Ancient Trading Route ran from Istanbul down the western coast of Turkey and the Greek Dodecanese Islands, along the southern coast of Turkey past Cyprus. Similarly, an Ancient Trading Route ran from Venice, along Croatia, through Montenegro and the Ionian Islands of Greece. It is those same harbors and ports today, and more, which on a crewed yacht charter visit offer a portal into Ancient History.
