Santorini tourist information
Santorini is one of Greece’s most beautiful and unique islands, noted for its peculiar moon crescent shape and the wide variety of places you can visit: towns, beaches, archaeological sites and much more.
What to see in Santorini
It is the capital of the island, a town full of beauty where white houses with blue roofs stand out. It is located on the edge of a cliff facing the sea, so the views from this city are impressive, especially at sunset. Do not miss the Orthodox Metropolitan Cathedral and the Catholic Cathedral.
Firostefani and Imerovigli
Among the many villages that you can visit on the island, there is Firostefani, which stands out for its ancient Byzantine monastery and restaurants that literally hang over the sea. In Imerovigli you need to visit the Skaros Rock, a Venetian castle that was destroyed by an earthquake in the 19th century.
Other beautiful and well-known towns, such as Exo Gonia, Oia and Pyrgos, are also a must.
Museums and archaeological remains
If you like history, culture or art, in this Greek island you can visit many museums, where you can expand your knowledge and satisfy your curiosity. Visit, among others, the Prehistoric Museum, the Wine Museum, the Megaron Gyzi Museum and the Bellonio Cultural Center.
On the other hand, Santorini is the perfect place if you like to visit archaeological sites, since you can find sites and remains in the villages of Profitis Elias, Vlihada, Arhea Thira, Pyrgos and Thermi. Do not miss the Akrotiri site, where you can see the remains of the ancient Minoan civilization.
The Nea Kameni and Palea volcanoes
You can go on a trip to the volcano, where you can explore solidified lava trails, see small holes through which sulfur vapor comes out, bathe in hot springs and even look out to its crater. An experience that, without a doubt, will not leave you indifferent.
Three volcanic stone beaches are the most outstanding: The Red Beach (Kokkini Paralia), where huge reddish stone cliffs stand out; the White Beach, with cliffs of almost completely white rocks; Kamari Black Beach, the most famous of the island and perfect to go with family and, finally, we recommend Vlychada Beach.
Driving route through Santorini.
Now that you know the main attractions, we recommend you to first travel east, since it is where the airport is, visit cities like Perissa and Kamari and enjoy some of their many volcanic stone beaches. In the west, on the other hand, go visit Fira, Imerovigli and Oia, where we recommend you to enjoy an unforgettable sunset. In this area, you can also go on a trip to Nea Kameni and visit some nearby beaches, such as the Red Beach.
Some typical dishes must be mentioned, such as the souvlaki, a recipe similar to the famous Moorish skewer; the dolmadaia, a roll of rice wrapped with grape leaves and gyros, similar to kebab. Fish, Greek yoghurts and cheese, especially goat cheese, are also typical. If we talk about desserts, the Baklavas stand out, which are vanilla, honey and almond cakes, and the Kourabiédes, almond cakes flavored with Ouzo liqueur.
Weather in Santorini
In Santorini the weather is moderate Mediterranean, so winters are short and mild and summers are hot, dry and sunny. December, January and February are the months in which the rainfall concentrates; if you travel to Santorini during these months we recommend that you pack warm clothing and rain gear. However, if you travel in summer you need to pack sunscreen, a hat and light clothes.
