This is the quiet side of the island. Less crowded. excellent for walking and exploring. Get a ride over here and then explore. A bit touristy but much less so than the main town. Nice local eateries. Friendly people. This is where the locals live....More

If you are tired of relaxing and want to see where the locals live, this is an interesting place to check out. Not much to do. Just absorb and appreciate.

We took a bus tour and had a guide to tell us all about this really old little village. It is very unique and worth the effort to get there.

Pleasant walk thru the village and its Venetian fort - narrow alleys, steep stairwells (you don't have to walk up these), pretty patios - very clean, not crowded. A pleasant 60-90 minutes.

Waterless vineyards, red pistachios and a pretty and interesting little town. Underground cave house and 1956 relics from the last earthquake.

I don’t think that time will allow an Oia sunset I’m afraid. The length of time you are in santorini will not allow you to see and do everything that’s well worth seeing and doing. I can make some suggestions if you want to... More
