The best hotels in Santorini, Greece
Santorini, also known as Thira, is a beautiful Greek island which has about sixty thousand inhabitants and which is extremely popular among the millions of tourists who visit it every year thanks to incredible sights such as Ancient Thira, Ancient Akrotiri, Art Space and Ammoudi. Some of the best cities you could visit during your stay in this gorgeous island include Fira, Oia, Perissa and Kamari because all of them have a lot to offer to its visitors: charming buildings, delicious foods and, of course, the most amazing beaches you could ever see. Santorini is filled with great areas to stay in, but some of the best are Firostefani and Imerovigli (two very sophisticated areas) and Kamari (which is affordable as well as quiet). When it comes to the best type of accommodation for your stay we recommend you book a hotel from the ones below if you want to just enjoy the island without having to worry about anything else since the staff will take care of everything. Before booking your hotel, make sure you compare prices and check the ratings.
If you want to make the most of your trip to Santorini we recommend you visit the island from April to October because that is when you will catch the warmest temperatures and the sunniest days. However, if you don't want to visit during high season avoid traveling there in July and August. Thanks to the good weather conditions in the island there are lots of different outdoor events taking place there every year such as the Santorini Jazz Festival in July. If you attend you will enjoy live concerts by some of the best jazz acts on the beach at Kamari. Many of the events taking place in Santorini are religious, and one of the best ones is the Feast of Panagia Episkopis in August where you will have a chance of dancing to popular Greek music and enjoy some traditional meals. And in October you could attend the Feast of Agios Averkios (which is the Patron Saint of wine) where everyone drinks local wine in a charming village called Emborio.
Greece is known for all its wonderful sights, and you will find many of them in Santorini. You could start your visit to the island from Ancient Thiara, which was settled in the 9th Century BC by the Dorians, where you will find Hellenistic, Roman and Byzantine remains of temples, houses and theaters. For more extremely interesting ruins, visit Ancient Akrotiri, an ancient city which was buried under volcanic ash, where you will have the chance of seeing buildings, roads, drainage systems and stashes of pottery. If you would like to go for a good night out in one of the best cities of Santorini then go to Fira where you will find very charming narrow streets filled with shops, bars, clubs and restaurants. Also, if you reach the highest point of the city you will get breathtaking views of the area. But don't miss the opportunity to see some of the most incredible beaches of the island during your stay and visit some of them such as Red Beach, Cape Columbo and Vlychada. Make sure you are on the beach by the time the sun sets to witness some of the most beautiful sunsets in the world.
