We visited here as part of day bus tour. We didn't know about the excavations prior to going. It covers quite a large area. It was amazing to see what was excavated and it is so well done. All under cover, sign posted, guides available (which we had with our tour) and only a 5 Euro entrance fee. It is an ancient Cycladian civilization with a Minoan influence buried in 4000BC in the major volcanic eruption. At present only 3 1/2 houses have been partly excavated from the town estimated to have had about 40 buildings. Many intricate wall paintings were found there but they have been moved to the museum in Athens. Copies are on show at the Santorini museum.
