Best places to visit in Santorini

  • Ancient Thera: Visit the ancient city of Thera where you can see some of the oldest ruins in the world's civilization. Sitting on top of a mountain, this is also a great place to capture photos of the Aegean Sea and the surrounding landscape. 
  • Fira: As the capital city of Santorini, Fira has many historical and cultural attractions for tourists to enjoy. This includes the Karavolades Stairs, the Cathedral of Saint John the Baptist, and Skaros Rock. Catch a ride on the cable car for a great view and a quick ride up and down the cliffs. 
  • Oia: This is another large town on the island that overlooks the volcanic calderas and sits on the coast of the Aegean Sea. While visiting Oia you can go swimming at Amoudi Bay or make a visit to the Castle of St. Nicholas. 

Summer in Santorini

In the summer months, many tourists flock to the Greek island of Santorini to enjoy its many beaches and to visit its wineries and vineyards. Nightlife is also popular in Santorini in the summer months. At nightclubs, you can dance with the locals to the music of a DJ or listen to live music. 



Very positive experience, all was good, nice service at the desk, we got a free upgrade to SUV since we had a lot of luggage, we had full coverage so Sixt just blocked 100EUR for fuel and it was returned the same day as we gave back the car.


Highly recommended, great service with flexibility.
