I am thinking to book a trip to Santorini this summer and taking the ferry from Athens. I am just wondering...how do I get to my hotel from the ferry? What are my transportation options? I don't think my hotel has transfer options like a shuttle because its very small. Does anyone have experience with this? I have heard there are not a lot of taxis on the island.

I just took a taxi. Also, even though the hotel might not have transport, you can ask them - they are usually very helpful and forthcoming with information.

Taxis in my opinion are the easiest way to get around in Santorini. There aren't a lot, that is correct, but it's because the island doesn't have the infrastructure to handle more taxis. Vehicles in general are limited. To get back to the port/airport when leaving Santorini, I would recommend booking a taxi in advance, but to get from the port to your hotel, there will be plenty waiting in the taxi stand.

Taxis are rare to find in santorini (only 37) and especially after the new cooperation they have with the cruiseships . You can try a private taxi service which is reasonable priced
Which part of the island are you going to?
if you decide to take the bus you can you have to go to Fira and then everywhere else on the island.
You can check the Santorini bus schedule here
I actually live in Santorini so if you need any info let me know

You should try the food while in Santorini!

I recently spent some time in Santorini and my one takeaway is that the food there is fantastic, especially the tomatoes. But everything is delicious.

I have been trying to replicate a dish - "domatakeftedes" - since I enjoyed them on the island I've been wanting to make them. Does anyone know what to do?

I think the ingredients are something like this:

- Ripe tomatoes (maybe grated)
- Feta cheese - crumbled
- Chopped Fresh Herbs - parsley, mint, maybe oregano?
- Flour or bread crumbs
- Egg? (recipes I have found online - some say to use egg some leave it out)
- Oil for frying

What do you guys think?

Is Santorini actually overrated?

I keep hearing this statement over and over....and I'm kind of confused. I loved Santorini when I went, as you can see in my profile picture. I loved riding the donkeys with my kids and exploring the island. I get that its crowded and a little overpriced but I think it was an unforgettable experience. I wouldn't have taken it back and gone to another island! What are your thoughts for those that have been?

Stunning Santorini wedding at Le Ciel Santorini

Santorini has become one of the most popular destinations for weddings for so many years now. This wedding is absolutely stunning and the view is what makes it! Le Ciel Santorini is one of the most luxurious hotels on the island, and is located in the northern part (not too far from Oia). It is a common destination for weddings and I highly recommend it for anyone who is interested in getting married in Greece.

Did you know that Santorini has an industrial tomato museum?

Santorini had a huge production of tomatoes, which was so big that they even have an industrial tomato museum that is open to the public. Santorini no longer exports as much tomato paste as it used to, I'm assuming because it became one of the most popular tourist hot spots in the entire world. The museum is located in the former D. Nomikos Tomato Factory, and I really suggest that you check it out!! Safe travels :)

These are the top two foods to try in Santorini!

Santorini has some of the best sunsets, but also some of the best food! The island has so many fantastic restaurants, many of which are taking a modern twist on traditional Greek cuisine. Two of the must try foods that are local dishes in Santorini are domatokeftedes (tomato fritters) and fava. Here are pictures of both dishes!
