How else could you describe a place where the inhabitants have built three cities on the edge of a cliff 300 meters above the sea, where the beaches are black and where the dormant volcano is a short distance away.

The city of Santorini itself is a really wonderful place. The beauty of its location is unsurpassed in Greece. The city center surrounds the edge of the crater, which appeared after a large volcanic eruption that separated the island around 1,500 BC.

Expensive tourist shops display jewelry, lace, paintings and other luxury items. Great restaurants, cafes and taverns are wedged between the grocery store, the pharmacy and the beautiful cathedral. The view of the crater is one of the wonderful attractions of Greece, but if you get bored of this magnificent view, there are beaches to lie down, boat trips that you can make and points of interest to visit.

What to see in Santorini

Everything revolves around the Caldera, a true image of the island. The sea here is intense blue and deep and the islands that rise to the surface are sprinkled with pumice and red sand.

The first thing you absolutely must see? The sunset of course! The privileged spot to look over the Caldera to admire the most beautiful sunset in the world is in the small village of Oia, where thousands of people arrive every night at sunset to admire and applaud the sunset. If you want to see this wonderful spectacle away from the tourist crowds, head from Fira to Imerovigli.

Archaeological sites of Santorini

On the island you will find one of the most important sites in all of Greece: the archeological site of Akrotiri is one of the most important prehistoric settlements in the Aegean Sea. The archeological site is open daily from 10.00 to 17.00. It is located a few kilometers south of the village of Akrotiri, about 10 km from Fira.

Thermal Baths of Santorini

Out of the center of the Caldera you will find the islands of Nea Kameni and Palea Kameni with their fumes and marine thermal springs. It is possible to take advantage of the benefits of thermal water. But bring one of your worst suits because it stains the water. Rely on organized excursions to reach them with Santorini tours.

Thirasia

Thirasia, right in front of the island is the non-tourist version of Santorini. If you have a few days available, we recommend you visit it. The architecture and landscape are similar to those of Santorini, but the island is not yet very touristy and spartan: a Santorini as it once was.
