Santorini is by far the most famous island in Greece and for good reason. It’s iconic white and blue houses, dramatic cliffs, and centuries-old cuisine make give it the reputation as the ‘Crown Jewel of Greece.’
When in Fira you have to take a donkey ride up from the port up to the told town. It’s best to take it up now down because the way down is a bit slippery and I wouldn’t recommend it.
Many tourists arriving by cruise ship choose to take a donkey up the 588 steps from the old port to the town of Fira. If you want a faster alternative, there’s a cable car that takes about 3 minutes and costs 5 Euros.
Oia is the northernmost town in Santorini. It’s a picturesque village and from here you have incredible views of the caldera. The entire town in pedestrian friendly, there’s tavernas, souvenir shops and boutiques. Now lets explore Oia!
We are here at Ammoudi Port, this is a small port at the base of Oia. It takes around 200 steps to walk down from Oia, you can also drive down. We are eating today at Dimitris Taverna, which was the first restaurant to be established at the port. From here you have the best sunset from Santorini!
Dimitris restaurant is delicious! We had a rock lobster pasta, white wine, Greek salad, meze plates, and a grilled fish!
Next up are two ancient Greek sites! You may be surprised to know there’s a lot of history on this island.
Akrotiri is considered to be the Pompeii of the Aegean because it has been preserved by volcanic ash. What you see is a village that date back to 1650 B.C., which is the middle Bronze age period. They also found artifacts that date back to the 5th millennia B.C., which is late Neolithic period.
The settlement was destroyed in the volcanic eruption around 1627 BC and was completely buried by volcanic ash, which ended up preserving many frescos, artworks and buildings. It will take you around 1 hour to visit the site. Next up is the ancient city of Thera!
The ancient city of Thera was built in the 8th century B.C. about 1000 years after the volcanic eruption that destroyed Akrotiri. It was built by Dorian’s from Sparta, and named after their leader Theras. From here you have incredible views of Kamari Beach and the Aegean Sea.
A few must see’s here are the ancient Agora, the 2nd century Theatre and the public Stoa, or portico that was supported by 10 Doric columns
Santorini is famous for it’s wine, but did you know that they have one of the best micro breweries in Greece? Donkey Brewery was established in late 2011, and they currently produce up to 70 litres of beer. Yellow, Red and Crazy donkey are the three main beers of the company!
At the brewery you can watch and learn about the whole process of beer making! If your wondering about the name of the brewery is because Santorini is famous for its donkey’s.
If you want to experience a typical Santorinian village, head to Pyrgos, which is located at the highest point on the island. Here you’ll get some amazing panoramic views of the island and get the chance to see its traditional archictecture.
Now let’s head to a winery!
We head to Sigalas winery, it’s located right outside of Oia. Next up is Gaia Winery! It’s situated on the beach in an old factory.
We saved the best for last because there’s nothing quite like experiencing Santorini’s unique caldera by sea.
Today we are sailing around Santorini with Santorini Sailing. We’ll be making a few stops at red beach, white beach, sail through the caldera, stop at sulfur springs and end in Ammoudi Port.
Let’s hit those thermal waters. As you approach the thermal spring the water really warms up.
As we make our way closer to Ammoudi port, we sail closer and to disembark.
We stopped at Saint Nicholas Church to jump off the base. Let’s do this!!!

15 Things to do on Santorini, Greece Travel Guide Video Transcript: (Σαντορίνη / Θήρα Ελλάδα):
We got our first glimpse of Santorini aboard the ferry and it was immediately apparent why this place has been linked to the Lost City of Atlantis.
What was once a single island, was destroyed by a massive volcanic eruption, and all that remains today is the caldera rising out of the Aegean Sea.
The first thing that caught our attention were the soaring red cliffs, and atop these, a collection of villages, all painted white.
We imagined we’d spend our week in Santorini just lounging around, but the island lured us out to hike its trails, get lost in its towns, and look back at its history. So with that in mind, in this travel guide we’re going to share with you a few things to do in Santorini on your visit!
The hike from Fira to Oia turned out to be our favourite activity on the island, but we’ll warn you, it took us closer to 5 hours, so go prepared with lots of sunscreen, plenty of water, and a few snacks to sustain you along the way.
Of course, no trip to Santorini would be complete without spending a bit of time in Oia.
Situated on the northern tip of the island and built on the slope of the caldera, this is probably the most picturesque town on the island, and a very popular spot right around sunset.
We had a leisurely ride out to the island and once we docked, we paid an additional 2 Euros and 50 cents per person for admission to Nea Kameni Volcanic Park.
From there we hiked along a gravel path until we reached the top of the crater, where we did a full circuit around the rim.
There were a few spots where we could even see active sulphur vents.
And that’s a wrap for our time in Santorini! We came here thinking we’d do a whole lot of relaxing and not much else, but as it turns out, this is a great island for an active holiday.
Our week in Santorini was spent village hopping, hiking the trails, learning about the island’s history, and feasting on Greek food.
It was the perfect way to end our travels in Greece, and also wrap up our Eurotrip.
Wishing you happy travels, and we’ll see you in the next video!
This is part of our Travel in Greece video series showcasing Greek food, Greek culture and Greek cuisine.

Prehistoric Town of Akrotiri , Greece
Version en français plus bas.
Unlike Pompei, no human remains have been found at Akrotiri, and only one gold object was found on the site, suggesting that the Minoans performed an orderly evacuation before the eruption, and they had time to take their valuables before they fled.
The Minoan civilization existed on Crete and its surrounding Greek islands, and flourished from approximately 3600 BC to 1400 BC. The eruption of Thera has been credited with its demise; geologists have called it the most destructive natural event in recorded history. The town of Akrotiri was an outpost of Crete which dates back to the third millennium BC and gradually developed into one of the main ports and urban centers of the Aegean.
Contrairement à Pompéi, aucun vestige humain n'a été trouvé à Akrotiri, et seul un objet en or a été trouvé sur le site, suggérant que les Minoens ont effectué une évacuation ordonnée avant l'éruption, et ils ont eu le temps de prendre leurs objets de valeur avant de s'enfuir.
La civilisation minoenne existait sur la Crète et ses îles grecques environnantes, et a prospéré d'environ 3600 avant JC à 1400 av. L'éruption de Théra a été créditée de sa disparition; Les géologues l'ont appelé l'événement naturel le plus destructeur dans l'histoire enregistrée. La ville d'Akrotiri a été un avant-poste de la Crète qui remonte au troisième millénaire avant JC et peu à peu développé en un des principaux ports et centres urbains de la mer Egée.

Akrotiri ancient city in Santorini - Greece
Subtitles in EN - Υπότιτλοι στα ελληνικά - Napisy w Polskim
Στα σπίτια και στους δημόσιους χώρους βρέθηκε πληθώρα αντικειμένων, έτσι όπως τα άφησαν οι ιδιοκτήτες τους.
Χάλκινα σκεύη, αγγεία, εργαλεία και όπλα, αντικείμενα που μαρτυρούν την άσκηση μεταλλοτεχνίας, καλάθια.
Τα κοσμήματα που βρέθηκαν στο Ακρωτήρι είναι λιγοστά, προφανώς γιατί οι κάτοικοι πριν εγκαταλείψουν την πόλη πήραν μαζί τους τα πολύτιμα αντικείμενα.
In homes and in public places were found multitude of objects, as their owners left them.
Baskets, copper utensils, pots, tools and weapons, artifacts which attest metalworking.
The jewelry found in Akrotiri are scarce, probably because the people before leaving the city took along the valuables.
