What to know before traveling to Santorini, Greece

  1. POSITIVES. Romantic sunsets and unique nature. Ancient history - go see the excavations. It's great to take a boat out for a sunset cruise, it's a must, try get in on a smaller group cruise, if possible. Good public transportation, not great. Outside of Oia and Thira some great restaurants for the foodies, in town great views and decent food.
  2. NEGATIVES. Don't take the children, couples only. Expensive. These are no donkies, those are mules and the stench walking or riding the mules down the harbor is unbearable. No Greek dancing Taverns open or available. Greek salad served in Thira restaurants subpar, tomatoes are not the authentic ones (volcanic island, hello, food imported). Dusty!
