What are the best places to stay in Santorini?
Oia is a small cliff top village located at the northern end of Santorini. It’s famous for its winding laneways and churches with bright blue domes. Oia is one of the most popular areas for tourists holidaying on flights to Santorini, and it’s teeming with activities to keep you entertained. Visit the bars and restaurants overlooking the Aegean Sea, pop into souvenir shops and high-end boutiques, and enjoy an uninterrupted view of the sunset. Look at hotels in Oia after booking cheap flights to Santorini if you’re after those classic Santorini views as well as endless dining, drinking, and shopping options.
Fira is Santorini’s capital and busiest town. Similar to Oia, Fira is home to gorgeous architecture and is located on a cliff overlooking the Aegean. The village has an endless selection of restaurants and shops that you can enjoy while visiting Greece on return flights to Santorini as well as the island’s largest nightlife scene. There are plenty of cultural activities and attractions around Fira, including the Museum of Prehistoric Thera and the Archaeological Museum. All of Santorini’s bus routes connect through Fira, and the village is located near Athinios Port, so it’s the best village to base yourself in to take day trips around Santorini and to neighbouring islands.
Emporio is a small village in the southeast of the island and is ideal for travellers who are hoping to venture off the beaten path while holidaying on flights to Santorini. It’s tucked between inland hills, but it’s only a stone’s throw away from the beaches of Perissa and Agios Georgios. There are some great restaurants and shops in Emporio, but with a quieter and less touristy atmosphere than Santorini’s coastal hubs. The Venetian Castle is the most famous landmark in Emporio, and the Tower of Nimborio is another must-see spot.

What should I pack for Santorini?
Spending time on the beach is one of the most popular activities for visitors holidaying on return flights to Santorini. Pack a few swimsuits and beachwear if you book airfare to Santorini for a spring, summer, or autumn holiday. Comfortable walking shoes are another essential for your trip to Greece, since there are a lot of cobblestone streets, hills, and hiking trails to explore around Santorini. Lightweight clothing like shorts, t-shirts, and sundresses are perfect for a summer holiday in Greece, but you’ll want to bring some warmer clothes if you book tickets to Santorini for a winter visit. Bring along jeans, a light jacket, and a scarf for the daytime and a heavier coat for the evenings. There are some beautiful restaurants, bars, and sunset cruises to enjoy in Santorini, so you may want to pack a couple of nice outfits for these occasions.
Sunscreen is something else you should pack for Santorini. Opt for a reef-safe option if you’ll be spending time in the water as there are some coral reefs around the Greek Islands. Finally, you’ll need to pack a plug adapter to charge your electronics in Santorini. Power points in Greece use plug types C and F.
