Ancient Thira, Santorini Reviews

  • Santorini is beautiful place to stay. A perfect blend of ocean, sky and blue. Very good honeymoon spot. Famous for red and black beach. Time well spend with friends and family.

  • Beautiful place. I walked up and rode down, but maybe the other way around would have been easier (duh)!

  • One of the most popular islands worldewide, one of the Cyclades Group of islands, in Greece. Famous for the breathtaking sunset, with many good entertainment and accomodation options. Crowdy enough on the days of summer, pretty nice destination for all ages.

  • As breath taking as everything you read about. Recommend ferrying our to Santorini then renting a sailboat and island hopping your way back to Athens.

  • I see people taking about having to use donkeys on some of the Isalnds to get from the sea to the towns. What are the restrictions. Can kids ride? Can a kid ride with an adult? How much weight can it hold? Donkeys are small and I am tall will that be a problem? It sounds like fun!!
