My wife and I are going to Santorini soon. We usually stay with people, but they don't live on the caldera like this.

I thought it would be a nice treat to stay somewhere for a few days that his this kind of a view!

I know there are some great caldera-perched places in Oia. I know they're expensive but they seem worth it.

Anyone have any recommendations?

Santorini sounds like an amazing getaway! Staying on the caldera is a real treat, isn't it? My partner and I visited a similar spot last year and it was breathtaking. We found this charming little hotel nestled right by the cliffs, and the view was just out of this world. It felt like we were living in a postcard! While I can't recommend specific places in Oia, I'd suggest checking out hotels near me online for some hidden gems.

Thanks in advance for sharing your tips and experiences! Looking forward to an unforgettable time in Santorini.

Red Dress Photo in Santorini?

I'm planning a trip to Santorini soon and have always dreamed of capturing that iconic red dress photo against the stunning white and blue backdrop of the island. I’ve seen so many beautiful images online and would love to create something similar during my visit.

Could anyone provide some advice on the best way to go about this? I heard there was a business associated with this shot? Is that true? If so, how do I contact them?

Budget trip to Santorini?

I'm in the early stages of planning a dream trip to Santorini, but I'm trying to do it on a tighter budget and would love any advice you could share.

Santorini’s stunning views, iconic blue domes, and sunsets have been on my travel list for years, and I'm finally taking the leap to make it happen. Given its reputation as a luxury destination, I'm looking for ways to experience the best of Santorini without breaking the bank.

If you have tips on affordable accommodation (are hostels a good option here, or should I be looking at another type of lodging?), budget-friendly eating spots that don't skimp on the experience, and must-see sights that won’t cost a fortune, I’m all ears.

Also, if there are particular times of the year that are more budget-friendly than others, I'd really appreciate insights on that as well. Plus, any advice on getting around the island affordably would be a huge help.

Last but not least, if there are any lesser-known gems or tips for experiencing Santorini like a local, I’d love to hear about those too.

Taking a Boat Tour of Santorini?

I am really excited about my trip to Santorini and wanted to do something different. Was thinking of a boat tour! However, with so many options available, I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed and would love to hear from those who have experienced boat tours in Santorini before.

I'm particularly interested in hearing about your recommendations for boat tour companies or specific tours that stood out to you. Whether it's a catamaran cruise, a traditional Greek wooden boat excursion, or a luxury yacht experience, I'm open to all suggestions!

What were the highlights of your boat tour? Did you visit iconic landmarks like the volcanic hot springs, the famous Red Beach, or the picturesque island of Thirassia? How was the overall experience in terms of service, safety, and value for money?

Also, any tips or advice on booking the tour, such as the best time of day to go, whether morning, afternoon, or sunset, would be greatly appreciated. I want to make sure I choose the right tour that fits my preferences and budget.

Best Souvenirs to Bring Back from Santorini

I am going to Santorini soon and I love to shop and get gifts for people.

Could anyone suggest the best souvenirs to take home from Santorini that would give a taste of the local culture and charm to friends and family? I'm looking for things that are unique to the island - something you can't find just anywhere else!

Any tips on where to find these local treasures would be super helpful, too.
