Thira, the Jewel of the Greek Islands

Be careful about planning your trip to Santorini! I thought I was going to spend about 2 weeks in Greece, and I spent a month. Santorini (Thira) and the other islands are what made me change my plans. The beauty of these islands, and especially Thira, make it immensely hard to leave. The food, the fun, and the people will capture you and won't let go. You need a minimum of 3 days on Santorini, just to get the feel of the place. It is worth a longer look, if you have the time. Its doesn't have many attractions, per se, but then again, it doesn't need them. On the west side of the island at sunset, you will find out why...

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Food, Romantic Setting, Vin Santo, View
  • Cons:If everything is so good, everyone comes to see...
  • In a nutshell:Worth every penny....

    Beautiful. Next to Crete and Ehodes, Santorini is the other island I really want to visit.

    Great Santorini page! I just got back from there myself and I wish I found your page BEFORE my trip. You're spot on with your comments.

    Did you ever see something on VT that was so incredible you had to spend HOURS looking for it again later? That's what your blue domes did to me. Very cool! Cheers, Ed.
