Things to do on Santorini
Making the most of your time on an island paradise
Not to be missed, the archaeological site of Ancient Thira offers the remains of sanctuaries, houses, a theatre, a stoa and a gymnasium. The view from Ancient Thira is similarly magical.
The ruins of the Venetian Castle ‘Skaros’ are located close to the Astra Suites Hotel in Imerovigli. It was at this castle that Duke Marco Sanudo raised the Venetian flag when the island was conquered in 1207.
It is also worth visiting any of the wonderful monasteries and churches scattered throughout the island, as well as the Archaeological, Folklore or Prehistoric Thira Museums in Fira, or the Maritime Museum in Oia.
There are also some very beautiful Santorini beaches on the northern coast, including Armenaki and Amoudi, as well as the beaches of Baxedes, Koloumbos, and Vourvoulou.
