The magnificent Santorini shines like a sparkling jewel in the blue waters of the Aegean Sea. With the completion of the group of Cyclades Islands, Santorini itself is located at the site of a flooded volcano and is home to the astonishing caldera that gives the island its distinctive shape. Life on the island itself is pure luxury. Secluded villas with infinity pools and private Cliffside suites and honeymoon exits create an upscale atmosphere filled with divine decomposition.
The island has a distinct culture and depth of history, and the local settlements consist of villages, each of which differs in architecture and development and is characterized by its unique charm. Santorini's romance shines with the wonderful nature of its sunset. When the sun goes down the ocean illuminates and lights up the caldera, a sight that attracts thousands of visitors every day.
Santorini is a luxury destination: some places you stay in Santorini are rich in imagination and cater to a host of elegant visitors from all over the world. Whatever the budget, the traveler who comes to the beaches of Santorini will enjoy the evenings the horror watches as the sky changes color and enjoys the sanctuary of Greek holidays. The days on the island are filled with delicious food and the opportunity to lie on your terrace among a panorama of ideal Greek-white buildings, as the sun sets over you and indulges in the joy of life in Santorini.
Spend quiet evenings in Fira, the island's largest city and the vibrant heart of Santorini. With an abundance of restaurants, bars and night clubs, Fira is the place to stay in Santorini if you want to party until the early hours and then spend your days exploring the island, browsing many of the city's shops in the shadow of a volcano's beauty in the distance.
Vera is the perfect place to enjoy and discover all that Santorini has to offer. All bus routes that cross the island start and end in the city, which means you can travel around the island. If you don't imagine getting on the bus, it is easy to rent a motorcycle or even your own car and travel as you like. Hotels in Fira are more expensive than surrounding villages, but there are plenty of accommodation options to choose from.
Near Fira, the quiet, quiet imerovigli is a great place to spend your honeymoon. The village is one of the most expensive places to stay on the island, but with stunning views of Lake Caldera and a haven of romantic luxury, it provides the perfect slice of secluded Santorini.
The charming city does not have a beach but it has great 4 and 5 star hotels to choose from, many of which offer beautifully designed private suites, some of which are built in the cliff and overlooking the volcano. From Imerovigli it is easy to travel to nearby cities; many hotels provide a free shuttle bus, although local buses also connect to the busy Fira.
Kamari is much cheaper than the villages overlooking the Caldera, but what it lacks is the famous scenery that compensates it in its beautiful beach. If you're visiting Santorini with children, staying in Kamari is an excellent choice for the place. The family-friendly village features a wide area of sandy beach filled with few bars, local restaurants, supermarkets and shops, which means spending long days playing on the beach and evenings enjoying delicious meals with your family.
This is the place to stay in Santorini if your budget is a little tight, and usually the best hotel rooms are out of the peak summer season. Since most of the properties are within walking distance of the beach, there is no need to take a bus or taxi to reach the water as it is in other cities on the island.
