Santorini - Holidays to Santorini - Places To Visit -Travel Advice
The capital is the town of Thira and its main port is Acinios (Athinios) quite out of Thira. There are many Orthodox churches in this small territory, the guide told us that families built their own church, explaining because there are so many places of worship. The roads are narrow and winding, a real danger and an adventure I do not recommend to heart. The rise of the harbor to the island is traumatic but the views are unparalleled, and are highly valued for the driver.
The sunken caldera of the volcano separates the main island Fira crescent-shaped with the other 4 beautiful islands (Thirassia is inhabited only as Fira). Today is one of the main tourist destinations in Europe and has a night (not as exaggerated as their neighbor Mykonos).
Views of the caldera from Fira - Tips - If you are only one day dedicate everything to Oia, which is really a paradise and you can buy very nice gifts. In Fira better walk down the stairs instead of waiting for the endless queue of the funicular, although at first it is overwhelming.
Oia - Santorini - is for me the most beautiful Santorini, a quiet town nestled in a cliff overlooking unique.
Time seems to have stopped and in this wonderful town where you can enjoy the sunset and the most beautiful sunset in the world.
It also has bars and restaurants with terraces where a drink, not without first looking at the prices (avoid surprises).
Fira - Santorini - is on the edge of a precipice. It has more terraces, its houses and narrow streets. We visit the two Cathedrals, the Orthodox Metropolitan Cathedral and the Catholic Cathedral. Access from its port can be by cable car or on foot. The descent advises walking and avoids the trauma of the poor animals.
Where to eat? - You can eat on the terraces of the restaurants in Oia and Fira and enjoy the views. But Oia is quieter and more economical choice than Fira. Also in Armeni are typical fish taverns.
On the local cuisine to comment on what little I know. Obviously we can enjoy seafood of course. Autochthonous wine also divided into two categories, white and Vinsanto (sweet wine). Widened be stressing the Octopus, the Greek salad, tzatziki, the taramosalata but I fall short. And with coffee frappe take a Ouzo, the traditional Greek liquor.
