Im concerned that more and more people are visiting Greece this year, particularly Santorini and that the restaurants will be full (especially the good ones). Is this the case? Should I be making reservations in advance?
I am not sure, before the pandemic we could just walk up to most restaurants and tavernas in Santorini and find a table without any issues. Now, I would either try to call ahead (if you speak Greek) or just show up a bit earlier and try to get a table.
Santorini Greece is a wonderful place to celebrate New Years! Many hotels will be having low-key celebrations and have many discounts for the winter season! I found this website that lists all of the most popular hotels to visit for New Years... here are a few on the list
1. Porto Fira Suites, Fira
2. Amaya Selection of Villas, Oía
3. Aqua Mare Luxury Suites, Imerovigli
4. Volcano View by Caldera Collection, Fira
I always watch this guys videos!! Youtube is one of my favorite ways to see what actually goes down on these Greek islands. If you've ever wondered what to do in Santorini, look no further! I recommend renting a gourana (four wheeler) and touring the island that way. You can also be more cost efficient (and healthier) and get a regular bike or even walk around the island if you're feeling like it. Definitely don't rent a car and definitely have fun!
The monastery is dedicated to Agios Panteleimon, Zoodoxos Pighi and Agios Nikolaos. This monastery is super special because it is created by women which is pretty rare considering usually men are monks and priests, and considered the leaders of the Greek orthodox religion. It was established in 1651 by daughters of the Gizi family. Today the monastery is one of the most important religious sites on the island of Santorini and has many historical icons. I really recommend a visit for anyone who is going to the island.
Two couples are hoping to go to Santorini for our anniversaries. I know the crowds are gone by then but will there be anything open? Restaurant’s etc? Will it be too cold to go swimming? Any information is appreciated. Thank you.
