About Santorini, Greece

Home to black-sand beaches, prehistoric ruins at Akrotiri, vineyards producing refreshing whites and rosés, and two wildly photogenic cliff-hugging towns called Fira and Oia, Santorini will not disappoint.

Plan to spend the day wandering the streets, enjoying lunch on a restaurant patio overlooking the beautiful scenery, and shopping. Loved Santorini!

Try Lolita's gelato in Oia! Very tasty...and get off the boat early. The cable cars have limits on how many people can get up and down in an hour.

Took the included tour and this takes you to Oia which is really what I was looking to see anyway... no need to pay for other excursions.

After tendering to shore, take a water taxi to Oia. That should avoid long lines for the gondola. You can work your way back to Fira from there via shuttle buses.

When you reach the Island, take the boat ride to Oia with a return bus trip across the island back to Firia. All of this is included for only $15 Euro.

After tender, consider taking the boat around the island that meets-up with a coach that takes you to the exact spot as the cable-car. Cable car lines are 1 to 1-1/2 hours which leaves little time at the top. The coach option not only get you there quicker, but you get to see the other part of the island. I think boat/coach option is 20 Euros.

Visit Akrotiri if you like ancient history. The fully under cover archaeological excavations are from an advanced Minoan Bronze Age settlement buried under volcanic ash over 3,500 years ago.

Oia (the town with all the blue and white buildings) is actually a bit far to get to. Take advantage of the services offered locally from local vendors offering a speed boat trip or bus tour to get there, otherwise it can be a little challenging. Don't go too early in the morning, there is absolutely nothing open and not much to do!
