      Santorini

      Santorini: the most beautiful.

      Santorini’s white and azure aesthetic is probably the most iconic of all Greek islands. And it’s even more beautiful in real life.

      Flights to Santorini Island, Greece

      The island of Santorini was once known as “Kalliste”, which means “the most beautiful”, a name it certainly deserves. This volcanic island is surely the most legendary in Greece.
      Originally round, it acquired its crescent shape as the result of a volcanic eruption in the fifteenth century BC. What’s more, Santorini is the jewel of the Cyclades archipelago where you will be captivated by its red and black beaches and little villages of sparkling white buildings with blue domes, nestled atop the soaring cliffs.

      What to do in Santorini?

      1. In addition to offering one of the best views on the island, the village of Akrotiri is home to excellent fish taverns, breathtaking beaches, tiny churches and even a castle.
      2. The Santorini Caldera is one of the most beautiful bays in the world. It affords an incredible panoramic view of the islands of Nea Kameni, Palea Kameni, Thirassia and the rest of Santorini! An absolute must-see!
      3. The picture-postcard village of Oia is the island of Santorini’s most iconic spot! Something of a victim of its own success, Oia is flooded with tourists in the summer, overwhelming the locals. It is also renowned for its spectacular sunset views!
      4. If you like, you can take an excursion to the Nea Kameni National Geological Park. There, you can climb the volcano to the black volcanic cliff. Your efforts will be rewarded with a sublime panorama from the top.
      5. As its name suggests, the Red Beach has naturally red sand. It’s not the most beautiful beach in the world, but this rare phenomenon is well worth the detour.
      6. If you’re looking to add some variety to your activities and excursions, visit Rethymno in Crete. A 4-hour boat ride from Santorini, your journey will be rewarded!
      7. The little cliffside village of Firostefani offers a spectacular view. It is also the starting point for a beautiful walk to the Agii Theodori church.
      8. If hiking is your style, you can walk from Fira to Oia. This may sound long and exhausting, but the experience will not disappoint. The route will bring you to several other charming villages!
      9. What better way to soak up the local atmosphere than a wine tasting? All you have to do is visit the wine museum in the picturesque village of Messara!

      What to do and not do in Santorini?

      • The island of Santorini covers only 76 km2, but it does not have a highly developed public transport system. It is therefore advisable to rent a car, or even a 4x4, if you want to explore the magnificent landscape. Keep in mind that not all of the towns on the island have service stations, so be sure to start your day with enough fuel.
      • Bring along a good pair of walking shoes because most of the sites are difficult to access and require climbing a lot of stairs or rocky terrain.

      A few words of Greek

      • Kalimera is the usual greeting in the morning, if you’re greeting someone in the afternoon or evening, say kalispera. Goodnight is kalinikta, do pay attention though as kalinikta is only used as a goodbye, never as a greeting. Going for drinks with friends? The Greeks don’t say cheers but yamas! Want to go out? Say Pame gia café. It literally means “Let’s go for a coffee” but it’s generally used to go out for drinks, not specifically coffee. If you have a particular Greek lady or gentleman in mind, this is the way to ask them out for a drink.

      When to go to Santorini?

      Santorini has a Mediterranean climate, with mild, rainy winters, and hot, dry summers. The best time of year for visiting is between June and mid-September. If you’re sensitive to cold, you’ll want to bring along a light sweater as the wind can lower the temperatures. However, you will definitely not want to be without your sunglasses and sunscreen.

      What to eat in Santorini?

      The Greeks love to cook and seldom eat alone! That’s why, on the island of Santorini, you can sample many mouthwatering Greek specialties.
