Visit Santorini: get started
SANTORINI TRAVEL GUIDE
WHAT TO EATDishes featuring locally sources ingredients like cherry tomatoes, capers and white eggplants, Santorini tomato fritters (domatokeftedes), Fava (a purée of yellow split peas), offal soup (sgardoumia) and popular Santorini sweets called kopania, made with barley, raisins and sesame seeds.
WHAT TO BRING BACKCraft beers from the Santorini Brewing Company or wine from the many wineries (Santo Wines or Venetsanos), literary finds from Atlantis Books, unique island-inspired jewellery, volcanic lava or donkey milk soap (it’s a thing!) and countless sunset shots.
FUN FACTSantorini was home to one of the planet’s largest volcanic eruptions ever recorded, the Minoan eruption of the 2nd millennium BC. The eruption triggered the collapse of the Minoan civilization that populated many islands of the Aegean Sea—you can visit archaeological remnants of this ancient society at the prehistoric settlement of Akrotiri on Santorini!
