    Υποτίθεται ότι το Αlexandra hotel είναι 3 αστέρων ξενοδοχείο αλλά είναι πολύ χειρότερο και από το πιο φθηνό πανδοχείο σε κάποιο χωριό... Τα δωμάτια είχαν πολύ άσχημη μυρωδιά και ήταν γεμάτα σκόνη πάνω στα κρεβάτια και παντού.Οι φωτογραφίες που υπάρχουν στο ιντερνετ δεν ανταποκρίνονται καθόλου στην πραγματικότητα.Τα έπιπλα στο υπνοδωμάτιο ήταν πολυ παλιά, στο μπανιο δεν υπήρχε κουρτίνα και μύριζε πολύ άσχημα λόγω των παλιών σωλήνων. Δεν υπήρχε ανσανσέρ και αναγκαστήκαμε να βγάλουμε μόνοι μας από τις σκάλες τις αποσκευές μας.Τα σερβίτσια του πρωινού ήταν εκτεθειμένα στην τραπεζαρία από την προηγούμενη μέρα. Η πισίνα ήταν λερωμένη και γεμάτη μύκητες.
    Όταν κάναμε παράπονο για τα δωμάτια και την καθαριοτητα του ξενοδοχείου, τύχαμε απαράδεκτης συμπεριφοράς από τους ιδιοκτήτες και μάλιστα μας ΑΠΕΙΛΗΣΑΝ πως αν γράψουμε οποιοδήποτε αρνητικό σχόλιο στο ιντερνετ, θα μας κάνουν αγωγές εκατομμυρίων.'Οταν θελήσαμε να αλλάξουμε ξενοδοχείο, μας έδιωξαν με τις κλωτσιές.Είχαμε τις χειρότερες διακοπές εξαιτίας τους.Έχω ξαναπάει άλλες δύο φορές στην Σαντορίνη και πρώτη φορά αντιμετώπισα τέτοια τρισάθλια κατάσταση. Είχαμε βρεθεί 8 άτομα, άγνωστοι μεταξύ μας, που είχαμε φτάσει την ίδια μέρα στο ξενοδοχείο και κανείς δεν ήταν ευχαριστημένος... Δεν νομίζω να είναι και τόσο τυχαίο... Στη σελίδα του ξενοδοχείο στο ιντερνετ έλεγαν ότι υπάρχει στάση λεωφορείου σε 50m αλλά η στάση απείχε 20 λεπτά με τα πόδια από εκεί.Είναι κρίμα να πάθουν και άλλοι τα ίδια...

are there any direct international flights from Santorini (namely from Rome or Milan)

by crewrower

It seems the answer is no, based on what I've researched online, but but would like to see if anyone knows?

EasyJet flies from Milan Malpensa to Santorini. However, I think it may only be at certain times of the year and not all year round.

Hi Chris,
I don't know the answer here, it was by ferry when we went many years ago. But it was a lovely trip, arriving mid-afternoon. And we made plenty of friends on the journey, that we met up with for drinks while we were there.

So....all I can say is....congratulations....have a lovely honeymoon. Bettsxx

by greekcypriot

Hi,
I believe if you fly by Easyjet from Malpensa to Athens it will give you the opportunity to see some of Athens as well. And when in Athens you have the chance to see another island as well....that of Aegina (worth visiting) and then you can take a flying dolphin and sail to Santorini.
Aigina is a very beautiful island and very economical to sail there with a ferry.
I believe I have given another alternative that would help.

by crewrower

thanks Meryimelda - looks like Easyjet flies direct only in the Summer. Your reply was still helpful, though, because it helps explain why some information online indicated that there were direct flights.

I will assume that in September there is no direct option.

by wonderdida

you should also check meridiana.
I know there are also other airlines that fly directly, but mainly june-august

Re: are there any direct international flights from Santorini (namely from Rome or Milan)

by JohntheFinn

AirBerlin flies from a number of destinations (in Germany, Austria and the UK) direct to Santorini, with at least some flights continuing well into September. Their last flight to London is on October 10.

Re: are there any direct international flights from Santorini (namely from Rome or Milan)

by Mikebb

Late September,2008 we took a flight Madrid to Santorini on Olympic airways, however we had to join a connecting flight in Athens. The flight booking was changed and we had a 6 hour wait in Ayhens airport and arrived santorini 12:30 am.

For the 3 days we had on Santorini the delay was soon forgotten.

Travel Tips for Santorini Island

Vegetarians

by adabernice

I don't eat meat, fish or bods. But in Greece I never go without! A top tip is to say "Horace Crayas" as this means no meat please. The spelling may be inaccurate but if you say that it should be understandable. Also the Briam is good, a bit like veggie stew. And don't forget the cheese pies! To die for!

Santorini Street Names

by johngayton

Greek street signs can be confusing at the best of times especially when you are looking for a specific street for which you only have a Latin transliteration. Santorini manages to deftly avoid such confusions simply by not having names for streets.

If you want to find a specific hotel or restaurant etc you need to know where it is in relation to some landmark or well-known building. Thus, for instance, the "address" I was given for my first hotel was simply the hotel's name and location in regards to the main square - "Markakis - 150m down the side street heading away from the caldera, where the mini-supermarket is"!!

I can imagine it being a bit of a nightmare on your first day in your new job as the postman!

Oia port

by Lilasel

Oia is also a port, which today mostly caters to the expensive private yachts and caiques which dock below. Half destroyed by the earthquake of 1956, and once having 9,000 residents, it has won major awards for its reconstruction and restoration efforts and is a charming place built on top of its self on the cliff face.

WINDMILLS

by DAO



All across Santorini you will see real windmills – if you look for them. All too often you will see fake ones adorning a restaurant or hotel. Most of the real windmills are now ruins (pictured). A Santorini Windmill uses 12 sails on 12 poles to drive a wooded wheel inside. This was combined with a pole and a large rock that crushed grains into flour for bread in the days before electricity. Many of the internal wooden mechanics and even the mill stone can still be found inside. So if you are zipping past one on the side of the road, slow down and take a closer look!

Ancient Thira...couldn't see a point

by mapakettle

Ancient Thira sits on top of a huge barren rock outcropping which divides Kamari and Perissa, known as Cape Mesa Vouno. Immediately behind Ma (as shown in the picture), is the summit of Mt. Profitis Ilias, with the radar station tower quite evident. The entrance to Ancient Thira itself is located to the left of the photo, with a slight valley separating the two ridges.

During the dates we were on Santorini, many parts of Ancient Thira were temporarily closed to the public, and even the tour guide providing bus runs from Kamari up the long switchback road recommended we not bother. The shuttle departures were greatly reduced, so long hours of waiting for a return ride could be expected. Walkable, but not for the Kettles in this heat.

From what the guide told us, the site is more of an interest destination for the tourist, and not much of of an important archaeological site 'at this time'. Old building foundations are apparent, as is a poorly preserved theatre, and many very faint carvings of an erotic nature. Interesting for sure, but much remains to be excavated, and the site is an ongoing project. From the books we had read, it described the site much differently, and we had anticipated a ruins much like Pompeii. Disappointing, but certainly worth a gander upon our return next visit.
