Apart from the museums, galleries and cultural events, it has the island’s largest shopping center and the biggest choice of dining out and entertainment. The volcano can be seen from every point, as can the mesmerizing sunsets.
It also derived importance from its proximity to Skaros Fortress. Imerovigli has views of the volcano, breathtaking sunsets and tranquility. The largest part of Imerovigli was destroyed in the 1956 volcano eruption.
Some of the population perished, while others moved away to the mainland. Imerovigli has since then been restored and is home to some of the most beautiful hotels, villas and traditional cave house settlements on the island.
Oia is one of the most photographed places in Greece, if not the world. It has inspired artists, poets and every visitor who visits Santorini. Oia is best known for breathtaking sunsets; if truth be told, sunrise in Oia is also magical.
In Medieval times, Akrotiri was one of the 5 fortified settlements on the island.
Akrotiri lies exactly on the axis of the shipping lane from Piraeus to Alexandria.
The lighthouse is one of the best in Greece. From the light house you can enjoy a different angle of the caldera and the most spectacular sunset in the world overlooking the whole rim of the Cliffside.
Traditional architecture, remains of neo-classical mansions, narrow winding paths leading up the hillside, small white houses, galleries, vineyards, churches and breathtaking panoramic views.
Home to historical mansions, old traditional houses, pirate hideaways and wine canavas, it has a history of merchants and wealthy land barons exporting Vinsanto wine that the island still produces.
Kamari offers a wealth of cafes, bars, restaurants, shops and supermarkets, as well as a lively nightlife. The beach is organized, with sun beds, umbrellas, water sports and diving.
Both beaches are organized. Perivolos in particular is a more up-market dinning and clubbing scene, an extension of Santorini’s fine dinning and nightlife by day.
