Friday morning we landed in Santorini around 6:15am, and were picked up by the hotel shuttle bus. We were exhausted, but were still able to enjoy the scenery along the ride. When we finally arrived to the hotel the owner/receptionist/doeseverythingwoman greeted us from her window. We checked in and she began discussing …
... back and forth up to the town. Upon closer inspection we realized
the small path was actually a donkey taxi zone. Tens of donkeys were making
their way up the hill with tourists perched on their backs! We saw a dude at
the base of the hill with a sign reading “Donkey Station” and we were so amused

picturesque village of Oia, which all the expensive excursions were ...

The caldera being 400m deep makes it possible for all but the largest ships to anchor anywhere in the protected bay; there is also a newly built marina in Vlychada on the southwestern coast. The principal port is called Athinias. The capital, Fira, clings to the top of the cliff looking down on the lagoon.

TravelPod Member ReviewsBella Santorini Perivolos
Bella Santorini is a great place to stay! It's a short 5 minute walk to Perivolos Beach, has great rooms with good facilities, balconies with views, wonderful pool area, delicious included breakfast, and Evagelia is so friendly, welcoming, and eager to help you with making the most of your stay! The room was a little hot.. I'm not sure if the air conditioner didn't work, or if we just didn't work it correctly. However, overall everything was great!
