What is the best way to get around Santorini? Can I walk? Or do I have to rent a taxi or take the bus?

Really depends what part of Santorini you are staying in. When I was last there I rented a car, drove, parked and then walked around. Hope you have a good trip to Santorini!

Santorini can be walkable, but sometimes walking isn't comfortable. The island isn't quite small enough to be able to walk it. There is a bus. You can also take a taxi. There aren't really many rental cars. I've walked up and down the giant hill at Oia, and that is doable but a little hard.

Santorini is well serviced by its buses. They are cheap and can quickly and easily get you to the beaches and other towns such as Oia. I didn't need to hire a car because the buses could get me where I wanted to go. If you want to roam more freely on the island and go to beaches on the other side and lesser known beaches, then you should probably hire a car, otherwise there's no need really. And I was travelling with a family of 4 and we still all found it convenient to use the buses.

I also really like to use the buses on the island. They run pretty frequently

The best restaurants in Santorini

Santorini has some of the best Greek cuisine! Ever since the tourism industry has been booming, chefs from all over the world have been visiting, opening up restaurants, and collaborating with Greek shifts. In my opinion, this is the island where you can get the most diverse and elevated cuisine. These are the best restaurants in my opinion, but please let me know your top pics. I would love to know.

- Ouzeri
-Almira
-Ambrosia
-FalafeLand (vegan)

These are just a handful that I can remember off the top of my head!

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 :)

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?

The truth about costs in Santorini

Have you ever wanted some insight about the reality of how much you would spend in Santorini? Here's a video that does a pretty good job of showing you what some day-to-day expenses would be. If anyone has some advice on where to go in Santorini that is affordable, please let us know!

The Santorini crowds seem to be getting worse and worse

I can't seem to escape all of the criticism about the Santorini crowds. This makes me wonder… are the crowds getting worse? Or are people just posting about them more on social media? I haven't been to Santorini in many years, but this is just a glimpse of what you may be faced with when visiting the island. Of course, take it with a grain of salt, and the whole island will definitely not be full of people. I do recommend visiting in May, June, and September if you want a quieter vacation.
