8 THINGS TO DO IN SANTORINI

1. Eat lots of amazing Greek food

 Our favorite restaurants were Sunset Taverna Ammoudi (Ammoudi Bay), Metaxi Mas (Exo Gania), Pitogyros (Oia), and Lolita’s (Oia).

2. Explore alleys

 Some of the best views are down little side streets off Oia’s main path. Just remember, whatever stairs you walk down, you will have to walk back up

3. Rent an ATV and explore the island

 Santorini is so small, you can explore the island by ATV. Make sure to grab a map and wear your helmet!

4. Visit Ammoudi Bay

 If you dine on Ammoudi bay at sunset, you will see views that will stay with you forever.

5. Get a fish pedicure

 May be a little cliche/touristy, but we did it and it was fun. We recommend starting with the 10 euro/10 minute time slot if you’ve never done it before

6. Try Santorini wine and beer

 Winemaking is an important part of Santorini’s history. Be sure to try Vinsanto wine! We visited the (interesting) wine museum which also allowed us to learn about the history of winemaking in Santorini and also do a tasting at a very reasonable price

7. Watch the Sunset and Sunrise

 Santorini is famous for its sunsets but its sunrises are just as amazing. Wake up early and watch the shimmery blue waters of the caldera turn pink
