I've been to Santorini before (here's a beautiful picture from my trip), and I loved it but I'm curious as to what the traditional culture of the island is like. Does anyone know?

I remember that music was always present when dining out. Nearly everywhere I went, they had a local musician sitting at one of the tables, playing traditional music. In terms of food, I would be sure to try some of the specialty tomato dishes while on the island, like the tomato croquettes (domatakeftedes). It's also a great island for wine. The terroir is unique, so you might enjoy going on a tasting tour, or even just trying some of the local selections when you're dining out.

Yes! Santorini is a magical place, unlike any other in Greece that I have seen.

A few years ago we were in Santorini for the Panagia August 15 celebration, here is a look at a local celebration (it was just amazing!):

 
The traditional culture of santorini is similar to that of all the cycladic islands. Family is key around here.Most businesses are family centered. The two most traditional occupations of the island are fishing and agriculture which has as a result some of the tastest dishes you will ever try. Music is also very important with tsampouna and violin being the most common instruments used.

Santorini advice anyone? Should we hit the beaches or the town?

Hey, does anyone have any advice about what to do in Santorini? My wife is more of a beach type of girl, but I really like hitting the town and getting to know the locals (and seeing the architecture like in this pic). What do you all recommend for Santorini?

Why are houses in Santorini white and blue?

I have always loved the architecture in Santorini, but I never knew exactly why the houses are white and blue, and why they aren't like that on other islands or the mainland. Does anyone know?
