“Great view”
Reviewed 15 October 2013

It is easy to reach via car. The road is slightly tiny but is OK and is totally worthy having in mind the great view over the whole island.

“So high!”
Reviewed 5 October 2013

We booked with Pelican Travel for the archaeological bus tour by Kamari Tours. The views up here are amazing. The monastery was beautiful. You can walk up this but as it was very windy and we had walked up to ancient thira the day before we gave ourselves a break. This is the highest point and it's fantastic to see all the other villages from up here. Highly recommended.
