Museum of Prehistoric Thera, Santorini

Visit the Museum of Prehistoric Thera in Fira. This museum is built upon the site of an old Ypapanti Church which was destroyed in the 1956 earthquake. The exhibition traces the history of Santorini from prehistoric times using artefacts discovered in the area. It contains ancient artefacts from excavations including Akrotiri and Potamos - finds go back to 3300 BC.
The most remarkable find is a gold ibex figurine. Other highlights of the museum include wall paintings like the Ladies and the Papyri, as well as the Blue Monkeys. There are many richly decorated clay vases, some having been restored from fragments. There are some impressive bird jugs featuring the swallows who flock to the island to roost on the cliffs. These jugs date back to the 20th and 18th century BC.
While you’re in town, try the hike from Fira to Oia and see some of the dramatic views from the crest of the island, including Skaros Rock. Or head to Perissa Beach for volcanic black sand.
