I am interesting in booking a holiday in Santorini tomorrow with my partner and I just wanted to know if this is a good idea as we are black and we do not want to risk being treated unfairly because of colour, can anyone advise me if skin colour is an issue? I don't want to pay all that money for a bad experience.
Any idea to how much red leader cigarettes are please?
we are staying in Tourlos, where is the nearest place to rent a couple of bicycles please?/
For a rich but concise (200-300 pages) guide to the Cyclades -- which covers current conditions, background history, and its classical cultural wealth -- what is the best English-language guide?
I am specially interested in the opinion of those people who have been there and used this guide and found it to be first rate.
I am not worried so much about hotels & ferry schedules, right? :-)
It's the culture, politics, history of this special place.
Thank you for whatever advice you may be so kind as to offer.
Yours most sincerely, -- Eurycleia.
I am going to Santorini in first week of May. I know that there is good bus services there and relatively cheaper. Is there any facility of taking bus pass for 24 hours so that everytime I use bus I don't have to pay.
hi , its driving me crazy- i bought an amazing mens click on bracelet from santorini back in 2005, and sadly lost that bracelet..
for the life of me cannot recall the shop- im assuming it was in Fira..as we were based around there for the week.
all i recall is a grumpy shop owner,his fat tummy hanging out-but amazing jewellery and crafts.
the bracelet was really unique, lots of detail design in it.
if anyone has names and websites for some jewellery stores on santorini plz let me know.
Traveling to Santorini June 17th (flying in -- expensive$$) thought we might get the ferry back to Athens (23rd)
Is it best to buy tickets online OR buy them on Santorini, if so from where ??
We are a group of four going to Greece for nearly 4 weeks in June.
We land in Athens and want to do island hopping from there.
Want to do as much as possible, see as much as possible and make the most of it.
Obviously Santorini, Mykonos and Ios is a must.
Any advice where to go, which islands to visit, which parties are the best, best nude beaches to visit where, etc.
In fact, we don't have an idea where to start planning and where to go, haha!
We are a fun loving bunch, but would like to experience the "real" Greek way of living, not do the whole "tourist" thing.
Any advice for planning our trip?

Also is there a çheck-in time for Ferries too (that would also be included in the total travel time)? Or do we arrive on time and just take our seats.. like in a bus..? I've never travelled in a boat of any kind.. what are the things that i should keep in mind?

hello all... i want to visit symi island and santorini in april from BODRUM or MARMARIS in turkey by ferry..
i observed that though these islands are closer to turkey than athens. the approach from turkey is very difficult and very few options available via RHODES.
from athens it is very long journey by blueboat cruise and only one ferry per day to santorini. [ i am aware of flights from athens to santorini but i want cheaper option]
has anybody travelled from turkey to SYMI or SANTORINI please share your experience.
We are planning to visit Santorini Island in first week of December for 4 days. Please advise where to stay/ what to do..etc. I checked one of the Hotel and found that it is closed after last week of October. Appreciate your advice. Thanks.
In the last summer I spent a few days in the town of Kamari. I liked the pedestrian promenade along the beach with many clubs, restaurants and small hotels directly on it. It was very pleasant to have a drink in our hotel’s pool-bar facing the sea and the nice crowd walking on the promenade.
I’m wondering if a location like this exsists in any other Greek island! Do you know any?

After 34 years of hosting visitors to Santorini from every corner of the globe the Youth Hostel Oia, owned by my dear friend Manolis Karvounis, has closed its doors for good. I wish Manolis and Gabi much joy and happiness wherever their path leads them. YAMAS!
I, my wife and 2 kids will be in Santorini this weekend. We have 2 full days - we are staying in Fira and our plan is to cover a museum and then to Oia till sunset. Next day cover the boat tour to volcano island, black beach and if time permits to Akrotiri. Overnight at Athens and we have full day to visit acropolis and around before taking a flight in the evening to London. I wanted to know whatelse I should cover and what can be skipped. I have seen some cultural shows/dance during my visit to few countries- considering its history - do they have any shows conducted in Santorini.
Please,how many caverns are in Milos and can you tell me their names? Thanks, Carla de Sá - Rio de Janeiro - Brasil
