4 days, what to do??

by JCTraveler

My traveling partner and I will be in Santorini for 4 days in mid Sept. We are looking for suggestions of where to stay and what to see while there. We are 2 females in our mid 20's and enjoy daytime relaxation or sight seeing but also enjoy a nightlife atmosphere.

What are the best areas of the island to stay in?

Is it best to reserve a hotel or figure that out upon arrival?

Any other suggestions on restaurants, bars, sights, etc.

Thank you!

To offer suggestions for rooms we need to know your maximum daily combined room budget, in Euro.

It's advisable to reserve a hotel room in advance but finding something upon arrival is also possible. Just know that you'll want to spend time researching the various areas of the island so you know where to go in advance and don't waste too much time searching on foot once you've arrived. Find a good guidebook at the library if you don't want to buy one.

Fira has the most lively nightlife, then Kamari Beach.

4 days is a lot for a small island. Most people stay in Thira (Fira). that's where the vast majority of hotels, restaurants and bars are. Pyrgos is pretty during the day and Oia is popular at sunset. There are buses to whip you around the island, or car rentals are cheap. You can't rent a scooter unless you can provide a motorcycle licence.

Actually you can rent the small motorscooters without a motorcycle licence. But bring an International Driving Permit with you from your local AAA office. You can rent a vehicle without it but if you get in an accident and don't have one you'll be in serious trouble and all your insurance coverage will be invalidated because you will have been driving illegally.

I should recommend "Koo Club" for NIGHTLIFE. I spent a night there and I'd say it was good. Take a look on:
An other club is "Enigma" but I cannot say anything about; I never went there. Take a look on:

I should recommend you this link to have a first description
When I visited Santorini on year 2006 I found "Perivolos Beach" quite cool.

Don't miss... visit OIA (also known as IA) village, I found it very nice!
An offbeat could be the Church of Panagia Episkopi (not so far from PYRGOS)
You could have a quick help on what to visit also on:

Post again if you need more deep info.
Hope you'll have a very nice stay in Santorini!

I suggest you book at Fira or Oia. You can move around by a scooter or the local buses if you are on a budget, you can relax on one of the many beaches of the island.
When we were there we stayed both in Oia and Fira. Oia's hotel (see in my tips) was really good with a reasonable price.
4 days are just perfect,and I suggest that you hire a small car and with the help of a map you travel through the whole of the island. Don't just spend time on the three or 4 popular spots. About nightlife I suggest you get down to Fira or Oia. I believe you better search for a hotel much before you go. I don't suggest to leave it for when you reach the island. I am writing my Santorini guide these days so I have much information there. You can have a look.

Travel Tips for Santorini Island

The lost island of Atlantis

by Lilasel

There is a story thousands of years old about a "lost island" in the Atlantic Ocean. The story was told by the ancient Greeks, and had been handed down from father to son for many generations before the Greek philosopher Plato wrote a famous story about it, about 375 BC.
The island of Atlantis, according to Plato's story was really a series of islands. Imagine in the center a hill, surrounded by a circle of land, then another rings of water and one of land, until there were nine rings of water and nine of land. The islands had been created by Neptune, god of the sea, for Cleito, his beloved. From their children the king and people of Atlantis were descended. The island was very rich and the people content. The city was built of black and red stone; the roofs of the houses were of red copper and flashed in the sun; and there were two beautiful temples, one surrounded by a golden wall and the other with silver walls, golden pinnacles, and a roof of ivory.

In 1967, a city buried by a volcanic eruption in 1500 BC., was found on Santorini. Archaeologists say this might be Atlantis.

Imerovigli means day guard. The castle of Scaros is worth a visit. When Venetian leader Marko Sanouthos conquered the island in 1207, he raised the flag on the castle. It was at this point that Thira became known as Santorini (Santa Irene). The castle guarded the western entrance to the island from attacks. The castle had two portions, one called Rocka and the other where Roman nobles and Catholic bishops had their residence. The castle was never defeated during the 600 years of existence.

Easter in Santorini

by greekcypriot

If you want peace and quiet, tradition and beauty come to Santorini during Easter.
Easter is the beginning of the Summer season for Santorini and it is a great Orthodox holiday for the people here. Many Easter customs have been preserved for many years:

The red textiles at the balconies every Maundy Thursday,
the smell of "tsoureki" and "melitinia" a local dessert especially cooked for Easter,
the streets of Pyrgos (a village on the mountain) lighten by thousands of oil-lamps on Good Friday, and
the meeting of the two Epitaphs, in the central square of Fira are only a sample.

We came to Santorini one week before the Greek Easter and it was really what I describe above. Everything was cheaper, even hotels and food.
I don't think I would have liked visiting Santorini during summer with crowds coming and going!

The Akorini Lighthouse

by cnango

Jeff & I rented a car and drove around the island for a day one of the nice spots we saw was on the Southernmost tip of Santorini where the Akorini lighthouse is situated. The lighthouse was built in 1892, stands 10 meters high and is perched on a rocky point covered with white sandstone . It's a nice place to walk with some nearbly caves and of course those amazing panoramic views of the Aegean Sea and the distant Caldera to be explored.
