Europe - Santorini , Greece

Hey Guys !

I have decided to take you away in Greece in Cyclades to be more precise. I had the chance to explore the most beautiful island in the Aegean Sea: Santorini. Furthermore many tourists from all around the world appreciate this destination.

  •       A little friendly reminder about geography:

Greece is located at the crossroads of Europe, Asia, and Africa. Situated on the southern tip of the Balkan Peninsula. Santorini and Mykonos are the most important isles of the Cyclades islands group.

Many people consider Santorini like one of the Earth’s gems, in effect its particular architecture, and its charming places appeal many tourists every year. Moreover the important crisis in Greece has affected the standard of living and prices never been lowest than now, more it is important to know that Santorin’s primary industry is tourism!

Where to sleep?

Despite the lowest price in Greece, Santorini and Mykonos are staying the Cyclades’s island the most expensive.  In particularly concerning accommodation, due to the small size of the island, there is no many hotel or flat and this explain why prices increase quickly during summer.  Add this the few accommodations are intended for a wealthy clientele.

To find an accommodation in Santorini there are two possibilities:
  •      Rent a flat, for example you will find many offers in AirBnB and sometimes flat are so amazing, with private swimming pool, or a panoramic view of the sea.
  •    Choose an hotel, generally there is no important hotel resort like in other tourist’s destination, often Hotel are little, with some room but so charming with a good service’s quality. 

Main cities in Santorini Island:

  • Oia - Απάνω Μεριά, Ανωμεριά

From the Old port you can directly take a boat to join the little village of Oia, this village is the most famous of the Cyclades. In this place you will find the famous houses “blue and white”. Take some hour to discover its lovely street and taste traditional Greek dishes.
  • Fira- Τα Φηρά
Fira is the main city of Santorini; it was built in the caldera. The architecture is similar to Oia but the panoramic view of the 11 miles long the caldera is really beautiful. Concerning access, you can use the road and also from the old port there is the cable bar to join the town.

My personal advice is to rent a car or a quad, and explore the entire isle by this way. The main advantage is that Santorini is a little island and if you have the chance to stay numerous days in this place it will be great to organize your own trip to explore other places far from the tourist’s places, secondly rent a quad it’s really cheaper if you compare from usual cost (from 25€ per day).
More if you prefer the beach there is different kind of uncommon beach such as black sandy beach (Kamari Beach), or secondly beach with red sand (Red Beach); unless you prefer learn and appreciate the Greek history you can also visit different museums or archaeological sites.
Nonetheless for me the best way to enjoy your trip is to attend a sunset in Oia ;)
