Emporio Santorini Private Guided Transfers
Emporio is a village of Santorini island which is located at the center of the lowland at the southeast side of Santorini. The distance between Emporio and Fira is between 12 kilometers. Emporio is a spectacular village that nowadays is almost a united village with Perissa.
Reaching the village you are going to see how the houses are built over the hill and as you are still far away you are going to have the sight of a castle at the top of the hill but this is only because the houses in here are one right next to the other.
There are a lot of hotels here but during the summer it is very difficult to find a free room at the last moment.

History of Emporio
During the middle ages Emporio was fortified. The roots here are so narrow that it is very difficult for two people to walk side by side. There are only some ruins from the castle but both the two entrances are well preserved.
At the north side of the village you are going to find Goulas tower which was build during the ottoman empire in order to take care of the villagers when the pirates were coming and also to take care of the treasures of the monastery Monis Patmou.
