LET’S GO TO SANTORINI, GREECE

Why travel to Santorini? A trip to this destination in Greece goes beyond the colorful beaches with red and black sands. There are many attractions and things to do in Santorini from exploring the impressively preserved Ancient Akrotiri, catching a breathtaking view of the caldera, to taking a journey back in time at the historic city of Manolas in Thirassia.

Volcanic activity contributes to most of the activities in Santorini. Your morning can’t get any better without witnessing the gorgeous sunsets from the cliffs at Oia. In the afternoon, walk to the molten-dyed beaches and swim with friends or family. If you’ve never bathed in a hot spring finish your day at around Santorini Volcano. The Island is home to several wineries where visitors enjoy their time. You can’t enjoy the charms this Island offers in one day. You’ll have to stay for a few days or even a week.

Santorini is known to have the most relaxing beaches, the best summer vacations, best beach honeymoon destinations in Europe, and the best Islands in the world. The two Islands that make Santorini are Thira and Thirassia. Being the archipelago’s largest island, Thira receives the highest number of visitors and is home to major towns such as Oia and Fira. Don’t forget to explore the following quieter islands as well: Aspronisi, Palai Kameni, Christiana, and Nea Kameni.

How can you Save Money in Santorini?

Consider planning your vacation here in the fall and spring seasons and take advantage of the warm weather. My good friends in Scottsdale come here every year to visit their family–not that it’s even close to cold in Arizona, ever. They own a towing company in Scottsdale, if you happen to be in their neck of the woods. Check them out at scottsdaletowtruckcompany.com. Very few tourists take advantage of the warm weather during this time. This is the best time to enjoy great deals on prime hotels. If you get hungry, a tavern in town can be authentic and cheaper. Eating at most of the beachfront restaurants might be expensive yet the food served is not so great.

The official language in Santorini is Greek though there are few people who speak English in the largest towns. To be safe over language barrier, carry your dictionary. Things are slightly different here when it comes to body language. Don’t use any gestures when you are not sure the meanings. A simple example is the use of an index finger and thumb to indicate “OK.” This is offensive here and you may end up in trouble. Resident use a slight upward nod for a “no” and a downward nod for a “yes.”
