We were keen to visit this site as we loved Pompei which we had previously visited.On the day only part of the Akrotiri site was open.Meaning that we only got to see inside the bioclamtic building.That in itself is a wonderful building but one questions just how much damage building it has done to the remains.
That being said it was interesting but simply did not compare to pompei.It is a very small site ,as yet,and we fealt sheated that all the artifacts had been sent to a museum in Athens.None of the paintings etc were available to view .As these were renowned to be in such good order we were disappointed.
We did use what probably turned out to be the best toilets in Santorini though- modern clean and uncrowded.
The bus from Fira to Astrokiri cost 1.8 euro and you need to alight at the Museum.
If you are a history buff don't miss it ,otherwise prioritise this visit alongside everything else.
