Location

On the Rocks 4 star hotel is carved into the face of a high cliff 200 meters above the Caldera basin in the picturesque village of Imerovigli providing the most breathtaking panoramic view of the area and the renowned sunset. It is ideally situated 10 minutes away from the island’s capital Fira therefore guests can enjoy seclusion and serenity away from the vibrant capital and yet in close proximity to Santorini’s airport and Athinios port.

Distances

200 meters above the Caldera, in Imerovigli / 10 minutes from the island's capital Fira town / 10km from Santorini airport and Athinios port.

Excursions

Explore the natural beauty of the island by making excursions with a catamaran within the caldera; the caldera basin has a 4-mile diameter and its history is still linked by scientists and archaeologists with the myth of Atlantis. You will have the opportunity to visit the volcano island, the hot springs and the volcanic island of Thirassia. Feel the sea breeze on board while enjoying the island of Santorini from a totally different point of view that will surely excite you.

Culture

Santorini, despite the relaxing and summer atmosphere for which is well-known all over the world, has a great history linked to the explosion of the volcano and its consequences. Visit the Museum of Prehistoric Thera and the Archaeological Museum and plunge into the long and rich history of the island. The Museum of Prehistoric Thera hosts the important findings that were brought into light with the excavations in Akrotiri. Then, visit the village of Akrotiri and travel in time by walking around the streets and squares of a pre-historic city of 30.000 inhabitants and admiring the elegant mansions and high finesse of the 17th century B.C.

Gastronomy

After a long sunny day, there is nothing better than a tasty meal at a veranda overlooking the deep blue Aegean Sea while the sun sets. Discover the gastronomic treasures hidden in the traditional tavernas and restaurants of the island accompanied with local wines made with great prowess and expertise by local producers.
