Plan of a full day tour in Santorini
Let’s start, first visiting the village Oia. This unique village is the second most famous town on Santorini and, for many, its most beautiful spot. Oia is a traditional settlement of Santorini. It is also called Apano Meria or Anomeria (the upper side) and the inhabitants of Apanomerites. It is located in the north part of the island. Later on, explore the traditional villages, which include Firostefani and Pyrgos. There is quite a magnificent view, allowing tourists to see the volcano and Oia from a different perspective.
Firostefani means the crown of the capital Fira, located between two villages, with a magnificent view all over the Cliffside.
Pyrgos is the village in which the character of the medieval communities of Santorini is best preserved. Once you are in Santorini, don’t forget to taste our famous white wines, all produced locally.

Tips for a Santorini full-day tour
Eat at a local restaurant or tavern on the cliff or nearby the sea. Don’t forget to try our local dishes: Tomatokefte and Fava Cream.
Wear always comfortable shoes or sneakers. Most of the walking areas are made of black lava rock.
Have a good camera! You have no idea what is waiting for you.
Carry back home not only memories but also a bottle of Vinsanto (naturally sweet wine). Taste it and travel once more back through your memories. Remember your moments in Santorini while drinking the wine with your friends; let them feel the island breeze.
Bring your swimming suit and your slippers. It is almost impossible to walk bare foot on the black sand without getting burnt.
In summer, wear light clothes, bright colors for the photos that you will take unstoppably.
Put on your best smile and feel the vibes.
