Blue Star Ferries
Travelling by bus within Santorini is not without its quirks. Although there are routes to most of the main areas, bus timetables& frequencies change regularly (according to the seasons)
Donkeys and mules in Santorini are part of the native charm of the island and can be loads of fun. During the
summer the main business of the day is carting the tourists up and down the endless steep steps which
connect Fira town to the small port below and Ia to Ammoudi harbour. They are extremely adept at negotiating
the steps, but they do have a tendency to go very fast and take the bends like racing motorcycles.

Fira - hoofdstad van het eiland Santorini
It is the most touristic of santorini villages and a stop for most cruise ships. The street are filled with all kind of
shops, traditional and modern (many jewellery),souvenir shops, restaurants, bars and night-clubs. Despite
of all the tourism, the landscapes are fantastic. Small houses in the traditional architecture, blue domed
churches, sun-bathed verandas, stepped streets and as a backround, an endless blue around the black islands of the volcano
The ancient city at Akrotiri is not merely the most important archaeological site on the island, it is also, thanks
to its excellent state of preservation and the wealth of finds it has yielded, the most important prehistoric
settlement found anywhere in the Eastern Mediterranean. Akrotiri could be called the prehistoric Pompeii of the Aegean.
Ia - Oia is world known for its quite life and fantastic sunset
It's obviously the most beautiful and picturesque of santorini villages, hanging from the cliff. Oia offers you a
different angle of view of the volcano (Palia & Nea Kameni) and of the small island of Thirasia. Oia is also build
in a traditional way with blue domed churches, sun-bathed verandas, stepped streets. Many of the buildings
are built into niches in the rock. There are also plenty of tourist shops, but less commercial than in Fira.
Imerovigla is a beautiful and peaceful village. It's a perfect village to stay.
Firostefani is the nearest village to Fira (1 km away), it is today the extension of Fira. You can find there one
of the most famous blue domed church of Santorini villages which post card made the round of the world
Messaria is a village situated 4 km south-east of Fira.
Pyrgos offers a full 360 panoramic view of the island.
The strategic qualifications of the site attracted the attention of the Lacedaemonian colonisers of the island
who founded their city upon the limestone rock of Mesa Vouno. From the 9th century B.C. until the spread of Christianity, the city of Mesa Vouno was the only urban center of the island.
Kabelbaan in Fira
The cable car travels up the path and in three minutes time you're comfortably in the beautiful town of Fira, Santorini's capital,which is at the altitude of 220 meters.
In de buurt van Mesa Gonia staat de kerk van Panagia Episkopi, gesticht door de byzantijnse keizerAlexius I
Comnenus. The marble templon of the church is a rare example of marble-carving combined with wax decoration. De muurschilderingen van de kerk dateren van ongeveer 1100.
Twee kleine eilandjes in het centrum van de Santorini caldera, Palea en Nea Kameni, " de vulkaan " voor de
plaatselijke bevolking, zijn de jongste vulkanische stukken grond in het oostelijke Middellandse Zee-gebied.
Palea Kameni [ Old Burnt Island ] is minder dan 2000 jaar oud, terwijl Nea Kameni (Young Burnt Island) zich
zo'n 425 jaar geleden begon te vormen and its youngest lavas are less than 50 years old. These two islands represent the volcano's most recent activity.
Cuisine - Griekse keuken
The island's cuisine, dependent on locally grown produce, fish and seafood from the Aegean Sea, has
become timely again today by proving once more how delicious and healthy this cuisine truly is.
The tomato croquettes made from tiny, delicious tomatoes, the split pea puree known as "fava" with all its
different versions, the white aubergine with its firm body, the wild rabbit, the fish with capers, the salads
with caper leaves, the fresh goat cheese and the sweet "melitinia" have found their place once again on the
restaurant menus. Together with the drink "tsikoudia", the wonderful white wines, and the sweet dessert wine "vinsanto", the Santorini cuisine satisfies even the most demanding plates.
The island produces especially excellent dry white wines (a wide choice of over sixty local brands), dry red wine (in very small quantities) and sweet dessert wines (vinsanto).
Two great civilizations have left their mark on Santorini. The one belongs to prehistoric times and is that which
is coming to light in the excavations at Akrotiri. The other is the Greek civilization and is represented by the ancient city located on Mesa Vouno.
In Fira, the island's capital, stands the Archeological Museum in which are housed finds representing the
island's long history. The Museum contains collections of sculpture (ranging from the Archaic to the Roman
period), inscriptions (ranging from the Archaic to the Roman period) and vases and clay figurines (dating from the Geometric to the Hellenistic periods).
Located in Kontohori, Fira, in a cave house built in 1861. The museum displays workshops of carpenters,
barrel makers, shoe makers and tinsmiths as well as an original old winery, a gallery with works of local current artists and document archives.
Museum of Prehistoric Thera
The Museum of Prehistoric Thera, located in the island's capital Fira, is not an ordinary provincial museum. Its
special contents, masterpieces of art in the prehistoric Aegean, such as the famous wall-paintings and the
unique gold ibex figurine, place it on a par with the Acropolis Museum of Classical Greece (Parthenon sculptures) and the Vergina Museum of Northern Greece.
