    Things to do

    -Food and drink: One of the joys of spending time in Firostefani holiday rentals is that holidaymakers can get to try out traditional Greek cuisine in the variety of eateries that are found in Santorini. Instead of trying to put together a meal for themselves they can try out the Akropolis which is found on the road to Oia. The food is excellent and the prices amazingly affordable. A taste of authentic Hellenic cuisine can be had at Nikolas.

    -Nightlife: Santorini has the perfect joint for different tastes; those who want to party it up with other tourists can head to the Two Brothers Bar. Holidaymakers who would like to party into the wee hours after other bars have closed should visit the Koo nightclub.

    -Art: Lovers of art will find a number of galleries in Santorini to browse through. Among the more renowned art galleries here is the Mnemossyne Artists House in the town of Oia. This is a place where holidaymakers can buy not only paintings but also one-of-a-kind handmade jewellery pieces. Visitors will also get to admire and purchase the photographs of such acclaimed photographers as Andrea Motta. The contemporary, yet uniquely Greek styling of the gallery itself is captivating.

    -Beaches: A day at Kamari Beach is enough to purge the stress and anxiety of city living and relax the mind totally. This stretch of Aegean Sea coastline is covered in fine black sand and a smattering of volcanic rock, another indicator of the recent volcanic activity in this area. Those staying in Firostefani holiday homes should make a point of going down there to enjoy the perfect sunshine tempered with delicious sea breezes. The fact that it doesn’t get too crowded means visitors will get a measure of seclusion.

    -Museums: There are many museums in Santorini from which history buffs can ferret out information about the locale’s past inhabitants and significant historical events. A trip to the town of Fira will bring them to the Santozeum Museum which houses copies of the colourful frescoes that were dug up from the Akotiri site. The originals of these can be found at the Museum of Prehistoric Thira and trip to the well-preserved site from which they were dug will round off the experience nicely.
