    Paros is Santorinis cheaper cousin!

    As much as I love Paros I completely disagree with this statement. Santorini has a geological history that none of the other islands have. If you are interested in that kind of things you can not say Paros and Santorini are the same.

    What is the cheapest island in Greece?

    Go to the lesser known islands like Andros, Tinos ( easy to reach from Athens ) or the smaller ones Amorgos, Folengandros, Sikinos ( travel time and costs are higher) and off season is always cheaper.

    What place in Greece do you regret travelling to?

    Don’t regret going to any island. Won’ t go to Iraklia again. Too small, but the people were friendly, the beach was good so no regret.

    What place in Greece do you regret travelling to?

    Stayed in Mykonos to go to Delos. That is a good reason 😉

    Is there one ferry company in Greece that is better than the others?

    The high speed ferries tend to be less reliable when it's windy ( they will have more delays) but the boats are all more or less the same. Which ferry you take depends on where and when you want to go. This year we went with Bluestar from Santorini to Paros (no delay), from Paros to Ios with...

    Does transit through the Santorini airport take forever?

    I don't know which transit you mean. Check-in is regular if you have filled in all the right documents and had your tests or vaccinations. When you haven't you will be requested to do so first and come back later. Customs was also regular. No waiting time when we went ( in the evening)

    What is a typical price of a subbed in Santorini?

    Even if .... I wouldnt spend it on a sunbed. Really Mykonos is too expensive.

    Does Santorini tend to be more windy than other areas of Greece?

    Andros, Tinos and Kefalonia tend to be the most windy islands. On every island you will always have some wind. Sometimes it's more and sometimes less windy. Yesterday (Friday) on Ios there was really no wind at all. On Monday it was very windy. So it changes.

    I heard there are not many taxis in Santorini...what do I do?

    As far as I know they do. This year they seem even more on time 😉

    What is a typical price of a subbed in Santorini?

    Price of sunbeds varies. Some it is just have a drink of the beach bar and beds are for free. We paid 3 euro per bed, 7 for a set or 10 for a set. Most expensive ones we have seen were on Ios, 50 euro for a hanging sunbed in a cool club.

    I heard there are not many taxis in Santorini...what do I do?

    There are enough busses to get around and there are also taxi's available. And you can rent a car or a bike to get around or book an island tour or a boat trip.

    The number of Greek tourists will increase dramatically this year

    On Paros I hear it is almost normal with tourists this month. They expect a decline for September.

    Are there any museums in Santorini that you recommend??

    Been to the museum of prehistoric Thira yesterday in Fira. They have made an extra floor with the wallpaintings of Akrotiri. I liked it a lot!

    Are all of Santorinis churches operating?

    Here in Santorini I read in church that during the tourist season there will be no church services
  16. Lotjeurope

    What is the best place in Santorini for restaurants (besides Fira)?

    We like almost all restaurants so I am not a good judge. Try a restaurant in Pyrgos or Emporio. Those villages are less touristy.
  17. Lotjeurope

    Are there any museums in Santorini that you recommend??

    When you are interested in archeology, go visit Akrotiri. I like it a lot, but if you are not into archeological sites you will just see piles of stones. When you are travelling with children the Atlantis experience is a nice one to visit. Visit the maritime museum in Oia only if you are...

    If you want to be covid safe, I recommend skipping island hopping this year

    We do go island hopping. We did 3 islands last year and it felt really safe. I hope it will be the same this year. It is all really up to yourself. Keep your distance or wear a mask ( the right way) and keep clean and get vaccinated. If you don't feel safe in a place, just go somewhere else.

    How much euros in cash should I bring on a trip to Greece?

    It really depends on where you are going. If it is the touristic places, you can often pay by card, but when you go of the beaten track, bring money. We usely bring around 500 euro ( small coupures! 50 max.) to start and then use an ATM to get more when needed. If you are low on money and you...
