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.

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

Blauw vierkantje - illu Akrotiri
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.

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.

Blauw vierkantje - illu Vulkaan
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.

Blauw vierkantje - illu Archaeological Museum
In Fira, the island's capital, stands the Archeological Museum in which are housed finds representing the island's long history.

Blauw vierkantje - illu 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.
