A Complete Guide to Santorini, Greece, Santorini, Greece (B)

I got to spend a week in Santorini and had the most amazing time. Here is what I would recommend if you’re planning a trip there!

There are a lot of steps. The whole island of Santorini is on a cliff, which means there is a lot of going uphill and downhill! Make sure that you are able to go up and down steps if you’re planning on visiting.

You don’t need a ton of time there. Santorini is a beautiful and relaxing place, but there isn’t a ton to do. I wouldn’t recommend staying more than 4 or 5 days.

It’s safe. “The Greeks bark, they don’t bite” is what the receptionist at our hostel told us. Seemed to be pretty true too. I got honked at, whistled at, and cat called so many times while I was there, but I never felt unsafe. I even hitch hiked for the first time in Santorini! I was traveling alone and never once felt nervous or in danger.

It’s not all white buildings with blue roofs. I expected the whole island to look like the pictures I’ve seen. I was surprised how few there actually were! I had to go on a hunt to find these 3 buildings to get my typical Santorini pic! (They’re in Oia!) ...... (follow the instructions below for accessing the rest of this article).
