    • Couple Fira or Oia church questions

      Santorini Island Jul 14, 2015 at 12:47 PM

      I am driving myself crazy trying to figure out where certain churches are located.  I found the site "Greeka" and a guide to 9 churches in Santorini, but I'm trying to get more specific information on just where these churches are.  I've tried to attach a picture of one that really interests me that's in Firostefani.  I know Firostefani isn't that big, but I'm not great on finding things, so need some extra help!  Can you drive to this church (we're renting a quad bike) or must you drive close and then walk?

      Also, I ran across an article that provides GPS coordinates (which I can't understand or get to work) to a church that's supposedly in Oia, but I'm thinking it's really Fira, as it mentions "Gold Street."  Isn't that in Fira?  It is a church (or maybe two) with salmon belltower and 2 blue domes.  The person is standing in front of a gate to (I suppose) a hotel or maybe just a way to get downhill to the church.  She says to duck into the alley beside the Minerali jewelry store.  Anyone know where this might be?  The GPS coordinates start with 36 degrees north and 25 degrees east, which indicates further to me that it's somewhere in Fira - but the numbers aren't in good enough shape for me to determine the rest and enter it into Google Earth..  

      Also, this may be same church, but I read that there 's a really nice blue domed church with 3 bells in Fira, near Mama Thira's.  Can anyone give me more information on that?  Looks like the website where I found that is "theplanetd"under photography guide for Santorini.

      One more question: I've used Google Maps and less so viamichelin to plot routes on Santorini.  Are those times fairly reliable, even if I'm going to some of the lesser tourist-traveled places like Mesa Gonia, Pirgos and Megalochori?

      Thankyou & Efharisto tor anyone who can answer my questions!

      While I was in Fira a couple of weeks ago my friend saw a safari type hat with Greece written on it and wanted to get one but could not find his size. I was wondering if there was anyway I could get on line and get a hat like that for him.

      How expensive????

      by sunflower7 Online Now Dec 8, 2005 at 9:18 AM

      Please can someone help me by giving me an idea of just how expensive Santorini is???? I have heard that its cheaper to eat in Fira than Oia but not sure if its true? How much roughly does it cost for a 3 course meal in a nice restaurant? (Not looking for anything to fancy, just nice food). Food is a very important part of our holiday. Is the food on the island quite good? How much should we expect to pay for a pint of beer/bacardi and lemonade and glass of wine for example? Are the supermarkets expensive? Im from Scotland so not used to paying London prices!! I really want to go to Santorini but am worried it will be to expensivr for food and drink. I would just like an idea so I can work out a budget for food and drink. Also is the island crowded in September? Thinking of staying for 1st 2 weeks September next year.

      I appriciate any help and advice! Apartments I have seen are in Imerovigli.
      Thanks xxx
