Top Things to do in Santorini

Walks: The most exciting activity is to walk along the edge of the caldera and admire the views. The hikes in and around Fira are spectacular, particularly heading north towards Firostefani and Imerovigli along the road to the caldera. Keep walking, and eventually, you will reach Oia, but keep in mind that it is not a small island and that the road beyond Imerovigli can be hard. It is about 9 km in total and a good walk of three to four hours in one direction.

History, The intrigue of Santorini, delves into the past, with the fascinating site of Akrotiri showing the city of Minoan destroyed by the volcanic eruption of 1613 BC. In Fira, the impressive Museum of Prehistory Thera helps you to reconstruct the history of the ancient Akrotiri.

Sunsets: The work of nature is on display from any seat facing the sea, but the best view of the sunset is in Oia, where thousands of tourists come to admire (and applaud) the fall of the sunlight.

Swim: Take a step forward in the infinity pool of your hotel or, in your suite's private pool, from the edge of a ship on a caldera cruise or, on a black sand beach on the east coast.
