Santorini Island Shopping Tips by csordila
Santorini Island Shopping: 43 reviews and 46 photos
Shopping in Fira, which is the main "tourist shopping" centre on the island, is a fun experience, with many shops lining the small cobbled streets, ranging from cheap souvenir shops to very expensive fine jewelry boutiques.
Jewelry prices seem a bit high, but most of them are 22 karat, rather than 18.
The tasty local wines, such as Nykteri, Brousko and Visanto, are also a good idea to buy.
Here the most popular local crafts are leather and woven goods, jewellery and folk art, but Kamari Beach has also a wide selection of local craft shops. Of course, every shop sells souvenirs: polished pieces of lava are very popular.
Don't be surprised if you do not find any mirror in the dressing room, in most stores there is only one mirror in the center of the shop.
Oia is rather oriented for contemporary Greek art offering a more exclusive selection of art galleries, shops, but you may not expect to find GAP, Limited, or Express stores, there is not any (yet!).
What to pay: Prices are mid range in most shops. But be careful of the prices in art galleries for paintings by no name artists; they are offered at a sale price of 2-3 thousand euros.
Don't forget your wallets!
