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

How do I avoid the crowds in Santorini (besides going in the off season)?

I might be asking a very stupid question here… But is there anyway to avoid the tourists in Santorini besides going in the off-season? My husband is a teacher, and we really only get summers off, so there isn't a chance for us to go to Santorini in May or September. If anyone has advice on how to avoid the crowds, and how to travel on the off beaten path, please reply to this thread! Thank you so much!

Where to explore the history of Santorini

Santorini has such a deep and rich history that definitely should be explored on your next trip to the island. The Ancient Byzantine Castle is one of the best places to start your exploration of the history of the island. The Byzantine Empire played one of the most influential roles in the culture in history of ancient Greece. The empire was led by Christian rulers, who spread the Greek orthodox religion throughout the country. You can also visit the Akrotiri Archaeological Site which shows ruins from the bronze age, dating back to 1600 BC. Safe travels!

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 :)

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.
