Are you preparing your luggage to Santorini? There are 9 things you should definitely do in Santorini!
Travel to Santorini! At last!
After endless conversations and a remarkable battle, you have persuaded your loved one to visit the most romantic island of the Aegean Sea!
With a shape that resembles a little croissant and a reputation spread to the most remote countries abroad, one is for sure… This island of Cyclades will surely steal your heart.
1. Try local Santorini tastes
It would be a tragic mistake to go to Santorini and not taste the delicious local dishes. It is one of the top culinary destinations in the Aegean Sea for its own food as well as for its own restaurants and taverns with its unique decoration and unique view.
There are taverns and restaurants for all pockets, but you have to be careful because you are most likely to choose the wrong tavern and pay a very expensive lunch. To be sure your money and experience will be worth, choose places with award-winning chefs.
Try the famous fava and tomato bites of the island, well-known cod, scandamacarona and known as meatballs of poor or pseudo-bite (meatballs of various herbs and legumes).

2. Tour to Akrotiri, Santorini
Akrotiri is a top destination if you are a history lover. Although not so advertised as Vergina or Mycenae, it is one of the most important archaeological sites of the whole Aegean, at a distance of 15km from Fira.
Paving streets, exceptional frescoes and finds of an ancient civilization that has remained in obscurity for more than 3,500 years will make you stand out.

3. Visit the Santorini Museum of Prehistoric Hunting
The Prehistoric Hunting Museum is definitely one of the museums to visit. It is easily accessible, with great exhibits and very important finds from excavations. Often those who visited it say that it looks like a “dive into the dangers of Aegean history“.
It can be easily combined with the visit to Akrotiri, completing it. Only for the Prehistoric Thera Museum the price is €6, while there is a combined ticket.

4. See the Santorini sunset
The magical sunset of Santorini is by itself the main attraction of thousands of tourists every year because of the amazing color palette it creates during its set. The castle of Oia is the top choice for sunset but it is not the only place where you can admire the unique feeling of the sunset in Santorini.
At Faros in Akrotiri, the sun literally looks diving in the sea, while the world is much less than in Oia. At the beach of Vrychada the volcanic scenery creates a very special atmosphere, while the view from Imerovigli, Prophet Elias or Firostefani is equally seductive.

5. Go for a Santorini dive
Perhaps only diving lovers can appreciate the uniqueness of such an experience. The bottom of Santorini is far from common.
Besides its rich underwater treasures such as redfish, colorful sponges or sea slugs with its wonderful colors, you will have the chance to admire volcanic rocks, unique in the Mediterranean.

6. Stay in a Santorini cave home
Another unique experience that this magical island offers. Cave houses are essentially houses that are built in the rock. They are built by the locals in this way to protect themselves from the winds.
They offer dew in the summer and heat in the winter while the architecture gives them an unbeatable beauty in the landscape. If you are claustrophobic try it for one night. Worth!
7. Try Santorini wine from a winery
Apart from the fantastic sunset and the archaeological interest of the region, the volcanic vineyards of more than 3200 years of age attract numerous wine lovers every year.
Visit some of the region’s award-winning wineries and travel to the world of senses in a different way.

9. Visit Santorini, Emporio Thera
Emborio or Nimborios is 12 km away from Fira and is the largest village of Santorini. It was part of the sale – and probably of production – of the products during the 17th century, and often residents of the area visit the village for supplies.
The medieval Kastelli and the Tower of Goulas, located in the village, are a masterpiece of architecture and definitely worth a visit.
