Santorini Sightseeing


The Lignos Folklore Museum, in the Firá suburb of Kondohóri occupies a 19th century troglodytic dwelling, featuring reproduced workshops for extinct rural crafts, including an old-fashioned cave-winery.

Key Areas

Tour the island's microbrewery, Santorini Brewing Company (santorinibrewingcompany.gr) in Episkopi Gonias, with its unmistakable donkey logo. Red Donkey is stronger (5.6%) than Yellow Donkey label (5%), or try Crazy Donkey, India pale ale in 750ml bottles. 'Donkey' beers are unpasteurised, so should be stored and served cold.

attend concerts, exhibits or other events of the Megaro Gyzi Festival (late July to late Aug), staged in this former Catholic archbishopric or the cathedral itself; consult megarogyzi.gr for programmes.

Day Trips

...the beach crowds by hiking the ancient cobbled path linking Persia and Kamari, pausing en route at the ruins of post-eruption ancient Thera and Zoodohou Pigis cavern, sheltering the only potable spring on Santorini (fill your bottle).

Escape...to Thirasiá, Santoríni's only inhabited satellite islet. An excursion boat departs Skala Firás daily at 10.45am, taking in the Kaméni islets en route and reaching Thirasiá in time for lunch.
