SANTORINI TOURS: In Oia, the picturesque town on the northwest coast of Santorini, a 19th century mansion has been restored and converted into a museum that houses the maritime history of the island. Rare figureheads, seamens' chests, old maritime equipment, carrening drawings and patterns, models of old and new Thiran ships, acquarelles featuring old sailing vessels, as well as rare photographs and a library, all register year by year the contribution of the Thirans to the glorious history of the Hellenic Navy. Oia reached its peak of prosperity in the late 19th & early 20th centuries, a prosperity based on its powerful merchant fleet which plied trade in the Eastern Mediterranean, especially from Alexandria to Russia. Hence the two-story captains houses built on the highest part of the village which serve as a reminder of the village's former affluence. All items on display have detailed descriptions with extra information for all tourists. And since you are in Oia, keep in mind that there excellent rent-a-villa choices in the area.
