Symposion by La Ponta in Santorini is housed in an old winery in the traditional village of Megalohori, in Santorini, very close to Pyrgos.

It dates back to the beginning of the previous century and offers a rich and well-rounded experience in terms of local cultural heritage and music tradition.

On its premises, it hosts a tsabouna (traditional Greek bagpipe) exhibition and workshop, as well as other traditional instruments, percussion, and flutes. They also organize daily guided tours, workshops, and a series of music performances. Lastly, in the courtyard of the establishment lies MUSES Wine Cafe, where you can taste several wines and tasty delicacies.

Public transfers: In Megalochori village lies the 12th stop of the bus route Fira > Akrotiri. Once in Megalochori, Symposion is about a 10-minute walk away.
Fira is where the central bus station of the island is located. Bus connections between this bus station and most areas of the island are available. There are buses to Akrotiri approximately every 1.5 hours. Note that time schedules might change according to the season. Check the official timetables here.
Tip: Since buses don’t always stop at every scheduled stop of their itinerary, our advice to visitors is to inform the driver about their final destination in advance.
