Create an itinerary including Akrotiri LightHouse
One of the oldest lighthouses in Greece, Akrotiri LightHouse still stands as a sentinel on Santorini. A French trading company built the square structure in 1892 and operated it with oil, but the beacon switched to electricity in 1988. Wear closed-toed shoes to safely climb the rocky hill, and when you're finished, consider a meal at one of the surrounding fish taverns. Bring your camera to take advantage of the many photo ops here, which are especially gorgeous at sunset. Using our international travel planner, Akrotiri attractions like Akrotiri LightHouse can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • Worth visiting, work out when quietest, wouldn't go for sunset as you would be sharing the experience with +++×× strangers. If you want quiet, spiritual sunset, visit west coast of Ireland 😁
