About Santorini Island

Beautiful, photogenic, and with lots to discover under the surface, Santorini is the poster child of the Greek islands. Sip wine as you watch the sun set over blue-domed churches or take a three-hour hike from the island’s capital, Fira, to the famous village, Oia. Do as much or as little as you like. With such beautiful surroundings, whatever you choose to do will be a joy.

Flying to Santorini (JTR)

Santorini Airport is on the East side of the island, close to Kamari village. Regular buses take you on your short 20-minute journey from the airport to the capital, Fira. As the island is quite small, everywhere is easily navigable from Fira, but if you’d rather be dropped off directly at your hotel, then a private or shared airport transfer is your best option.

Or maybe you’re travelling to Santorini’s port and making your way to another island? The airport and port don’t have any direct public transport links, so you’ll need to get a private transfer from the airport. Be sure to book it in advance to avoid post-landing queues.

Enjoy the Art of Wine

Art Space Santorini offers its own unique take on the idea of winemaking as an art form. The 19th-century winery both produces wine and plays host to an art gallery. The winery’s cavernous chambers complement the modern works of art on display, and create an unforgettable atmosphere unlike other galleries. Finish off your tour with a wine tasting, and you’ll also have the opportunity to buy a bottle (or two!) of the wine that’s produced here.

Explore a Bronze Age Settlement

Depending on where you’re staying in Santorini, you should visit either the archaeological site of Ancient Akrotiri or Fira’s Ancient Thira museum. Ancient Akrotiri was the site of a Bronze Age settlement buried by a huge volcanic eruption many centuries ago. But, like the famous Pompeii, the area was well preserved despite the damage done to the roofs of many of the buildings.

A visit to the site allows visitors to see this ancient city first hand and walk down the same streets as its ancient inhabitants. Make the most of your trip by opting for a guided tour to learn about the settlement’s history in greater detail.

Discover the History of Santorini

If you’re staying closer to Fira, then a visit to the Ancient Thira museum will teach you about Akrotiri’s history. It includes exhibitions of paintings, pottery, and other finds from the excavations at Akrotiri. The museum gives visitors an in-depth look at this ancient civilisation and what made it special.
