Things to do in Santorini

Tours and boat trips

In view of its pronounced tourist vocationIt is not surprising that Santorini has a very wide, one might even say excessive, range of organised tours. The most popular are the sunset tours, to see the sunset from a boat or a particular viewpoint. Tour prices vary greatly depending on the length of the tour and whether or not dinner, drinks or musical accompaniment is included. Another popular excursion in Santorini is the cruise to the islets of the caldera, Nea Kameni, Palia Kameni and Thirasia. Generally, this boat trip by motorboat or catamaran includes a stop at the ancient crater and the hot springs and is a fascinating way to learn more about the island's volcanic origin.

Wine tastings

On the island of Santorini, good wines white and rosé wines are produced from a indigenous grape variety called assyrtiko. You will certainly have the opportunity to taste them during a dinner in a restaurant, but if you want to get to know them better, or if you want to take a break after walking in the sun and lazing on the beach, you can visit one of the wineries on the island and perhaps end the visit with a guided tasting of local wines. Santorini's most famous vineyardOne of the most popular wineries, as well as the most touristy, is SantoWines, run by a cooperative of local producers. You can join the short guided tour of the winery and then choose one of the tastings offered at the wine bar: excellent wines and spectacular views, a winning combination. Treat yourself to a food and wine tour of Santorini and stop at one of the many innovative restaurants, elegant bistros, small cosy taverns serving traditional cuisine or at the vineyards open to visitors, all combined with a fascinating and exciting landscape !

Trekking and beautiful photos

Even if walking is not your favourite activity, Santorini will put you in the mood: with its unique views, a walk along the caldera ridge in search of the most beautiful view, of course with your camera around your neck, is a must. You can limit yourself to the walks around Fira, but if you want a more rewarding hike, go all the way to Oia: it's not particularly difficult but it's certainly more demanding than a city walk, so follow all the usual precautions for a long walk (avoid the hottest hours, protect yourself with sun cream, bring plenty of water). If you prefer more artistic photos to the quick snapshots and selfies of the tourists on the go, Santorini will offer you a framing opportunity at almost every corner: because of its unique beauty, the island is truly a photographer's paradise.

Getting married in Santorini

In recent times, more and more couples are choosing the fantastic island of Santorini for their most important day! Weddings in Santorini are a wonderful experience for both the bride and groom and their guests because of the unique and romantic character that can be found in every corner of this, the most beautiful island in the Mediterranean. Why not exchange your vows of eternal love in one of the many small white churches with blue domes and splendid views of the caldera, perhaps at sunset when the golden sunlight floods the landscape with a magnificent play of colours? Or in one of the chapels overlooking the beautiful black beaches ? All of them may have been bathed in the intoxicating traditional Greek music and the joy of the islanders who love to party with those who choose their land to say yes! Imagine your wedding album with photos taken in the small cobbled streets of Fira or one of the many villages of Santorini and let yourself be tempted by a marriage and a dream honeymoon! Excellence is in the details, so choose local flowers for your bouquet, such as lilies or liliums, and buy rings from one of the island's many jewellery shops. Don't forget that couples wishing to get married in Santorini must prepare the documents before leaving their country.
