Tourist attractions in Santorini
Although Santorini is all about the sunset views and drinks, you might want to take a stroll around the island in the morning, at your leisure and explore some of the tourist attractions we suggest, as long as you feel like it.
Fira is the capital of Santorini, its main town. It is filled with shops, little alleys that sparkle through the way and are perfect for photos, restaurants and of course museums.
Also, Thira is particularly a great choice for a visit, because it’s the only place on the island where you can combine the destinations you wish to visit. You can see the Caldera beaches, the sunset, you can visit the historical places such as the Ancient Thira, but also take a boat trip and see other locations, within close proximity. We kindly suggest you visit Fira!
Before visiting the modern village of Akrotiri, you could take a look at the archeological site of ancient Akrotiri. Ancient akrotiri was a wealthy minoan town in the Late Bronze Age, because of its center and port. Then, the volcano erupted, killing everyone on its path, and leaving Akrotiri a ghost town. Now, the Ancient Akrotiri serves as an archeological location, where you can find excavations and preserved belongings that were discovered since the eruption. The site is often compared to the Pompeii incident, not only because a civilisation was lost to the same cause, but because most of the remains were perfectly preserved, such as a charred bed that was covered in ash. Also the red beach is located near Akrotiri town, so be sure to visit it, it is a sight for sore eyes! Santorini Wonders offers you a chance to visit Akrotiri through a guided tour that lets you explore the ruins and see for yourself the frescoes discovered!
We can’t neglect the best panoramic views on the island of Santorini. Oia is the town you visit when the sun sets, the romantic place everyone is bragging about! If you wish to catch the sunset, you need to get in line and be early on the spot. The crowd goes insane over this particular hour of the day, just because it is THAT pretty!
If you’re with your significant other, you can visit one of the many restaurants and bars and watch the view. Otherwise, we suggest you take the road to the Byzantine Castle, one of the best locations to watch the sun setting!
