Santorini, also known as Thira, is an enchanting island in the Aegean Sea, part of the Cyclades island group. It’s recognisable by the white houses hanging on the cliffs over the sea. This Greek island is a top destination with its volcanic sand beaches, romantic sunsets and sensational panoramic views.
Fira is the capital of Santorini and is made up of beautiful whitewashed houses with terraces overlooking the sea. Oia is a little more up-scale with infinity pools and luxury accommodation. The ancient village of Akrotiri was buried under lava and excavations revealed it was an important trading centre. Here you can visit the Red Beach, as well. Another interesting archaeological site is the Ancient Thira, while you can see most of the artefacts in the Archaeological Museum.
The bus is the only public transport mode in Santorini. The main bus station is located in Fira and the buses operate daily until midnight. The Santorini bus transport is efficient and easy to use, but during night hours you will need to find an alternative transport. Always check the schedule and buy tickets in advance during peak season.
