Akrotiri of Thera
The ancient Minoan city of Akrotiri of Thera—Santorini's Pompeii—has the most famous ruins in the Cyclades. Unearthed in 1967 after being shrouded in ash for 3,000-plus years, the town, full of paved streets with dozens of homes, some three stories high and with intact staircases, has been remarkably preserved. View important artifacts from the site at the Museum of Prehistoric Thera, in Fira.
