Things to do

Museum of Prehistoric Thera:

The Museum of Prehistoric Thera has pieces from archaeological digs at Akrotiri. These digs, led by the Archaeological Society of Athens, also include objects found at Patmos by members of the German Archaeological Institute of Athens. The museum is currently showing wall paintings from the Neolithic and Cycladic periods.

Lignos Folklore Museum:

The Lignos Folklore Museum was founded by Emmanuel A. Lignos, the director of the monthly newsletter 'Theieraic News.' The museum is comprised of an old winery with various workshops. The chapel of Agios Konstantinos is also on the grounds of the museum, located in a cave house that was originally built in 1861.

Santozeum Museum:

The Santozeum Museum is a modern art museum and cross-disciplinary space in Fira. The museum aims to create cross-cultural dialogue in various disciplines. The current exhibits include Akrotiri wall paintings that are on loan from the Thera Foundation. The exhibits were developed with the Getty Museum and Kodak Pathe.

Santorini Sailing:

The Santorini Sailing Company offers catamaran sailing courses and tours around the island. The catamarans are available for rental with crew and optional catering. A private beach is also available. Both day sails and sunset sails are available with a reservation far in advance.

Santorini Wine Tours:

Santorini Wine Tours take place across the entire island and give visitors the chance to sample wine from various vintners and traditional cellars across Santorini. Guests can also opt to take cooking classes as part of the tour. Traditional Greek method is taught as part of these classes, as are the Greek names of many commonplace ingredients.

Santorini Photo Day Tours:

Run by local Olaf Reinen, Santorini Photo Day Tours range in length from two hours to a full week. Olaf has lived on Santorini his whole life, and enthusiastically gives visitors an entertaining and authentic tour experience.

Weather on Santorini

A Mediterranean climate dominates weather patterns on Santorini. Winters are generally mild, reaching a low of 10°C. Summers are hot and dry, with temperatures reaching 30°C. A group of winds called the Etesians (or Meltemi in Turkish), blows from mid-May to mid-September. The winds are most active in the late afternoon and die down in the evening. The Etesians are most dangerous for sailors and travellers on the western-most beaches in the afternoon.

Travel to Santorini

Getting to Fira is not difficult, though it does take some time. First fly into Athens Airport (ATH), then take the bus or a taxi to the port of Piraeus. Ferries leaving from said port for the port of Athinios on Santorini take about five to eight hours to arrive at their destination, depending on which ferry one takes. From there, there are several car rental options. The drive to Fira takes about 30 minutes.

Fantastic location and views, helpful hosts

5 of 5
3 separate living areas sharing two outdoor spaces, so the villa provided good privacy for our group which comprised one couple and 2 singles. It was in the midst of Fira but quiet and a short walk away from centre of action. Loved the place and very friendly reception. Very comfortable and would book again if we go back. Santorini is just amazingly beautiful! Best place to eat, definitely Metaxy Mas and To Ouxeri if in town.
