We had an interesting visit to the old capital of the island. Good to get away from the more touristy places in Santorini and bask in the history. Note - No facilities

Well worth the walk/drive. An excellent view of the island from the top. Quite a surprise how big the city of Ancient Thera was. An amazing place.
