I planned to stay here only three days but I changed my mind 20 minutes after my arrival and I stayed here 7 days. It was a good decision and good choice indeed.
Don't come here for one day like a lot of tourists coming to Santorini from Crete. They only see the capital Fira and Oia. The both towns look diffrent in the morning hours before the one day tourists come and in the evening after their departure. The both towns are overcrowded during the day. I think it is reesonable to plan the trip in September or in October.
The beaches are not so splendid like in Crete but the views cannot be beaten.
I think you can find here everything you need or you want to find.
1. donkey ride
2. the beautiful towns of Pyrgos and Emborio
3. the Prehistoric Museum in Fira
4. the walking tour from Fira to Oia
5. the ancient town of Old Thira
6. the Volcano and the Hot Springs
7. take a dinner in the port of Therasia
