I remember visiting back in the day and Santorini was pretty affordable, especially if you weren't planing on shopping and eating at fancy restaurants all day. But I was looking at hotel prices and they're skyrocketing! I was a fool to think that they'd be cheaper because of the pandemic. I guess everyone is jumping all at once to get a booking in before the summer starts. Any thoughts?
 
Yes honestly I've been very dissaopinted with the way that Santorini is going...everything is so expensive and there are so many tourists that I feel like I can't get some peace and quiet on the island. It's such a shame
 
Living in Santorini the last 7 years,i can inform you that hotel prices have gone down this year but i agree that santorini is expensive over all.

Are the prices down because of COVID? Or another reason?
 
It is because of covid.Santorini has way to many hotels villas etc and we are used of getting large number of tourists.Now less tourists are coming so the prices have to go down because there is too much competition-options.

If your so disappointed that your fellow Greek is not making money from you or any other tourist during summer, I recommend you don't go.

Stop criticising Greece. Go to India if you want a cheap holiday.
 

Jarred Santorini capers are one of the best souvenirs

Capers are local to Santorini and one of the best souvenirs. Just make sure that they're jarred and sealed because you cannot travel with it on the plane.

Visiting Emporio Village, Santorinis largest village

Emporio village is only about 12 kilometers from Fira and it is incredibly close to the village of Perissa. I would recommend hiring a taxi or taking public transportation to get to the village.

Is Santorini getting too expensive?

I remember visiting back in the day and Santorini was pretty affordable, especially if you weren't planing on shopping and eating at fancy restaurants all day.

What are the best water sports to do in Santorini?

I know Santorini isn't known for water sports, but do you have any recommendations about where I can do water sports and which types are most popular on the island?

Check out the Santorini wine museum

At the museum you can sample the wines and learn about the history of Santorini and the history of wine making! I suggest taking a guided tour and picking up a bottle on the way out
