Inspirato offers rooms and suites at two of Santorini’s finest hotels, both recipients of the AAA Five-Diamond Award. With three infinity-edge pools and stunning sea views, the Katikies Hotel earned a nod as the #1 Resort Hotel in Greece by Travel + Leisure magazine.
Meanwhile, many of the accommodations at the Chromata Hotel offer private pools, hot tubs, and terraces with sweeping views. From either location, you can stroll the cobblestoned streets of Pyrgos, a well-preserved medieval-era village, sample local food and wine, or simply lounge on the beach. The boutique Grace Hotel offers sweeping views and heated plunge pools overlooking the Aegean Sea.
The rocky islands of the Santorini archipelago were formed thousands of years ago after one of the largest volcanic eruptions in history. In the ensuing centuries, Santorini played a vital role in the development of Greek and Minoan culture. Today, with its breathtaking scenery and charming whitewashed villages, Santorini is a naturally romantic vacation mecca. Modern attractions include a burgeoning wine industry, excellent restaurants, and water sports, all set against the shimmering, turquoise backdrop of the Aegean Sea. On an island with such fascinating history, the past and present work together to create an unforgettable vacation destination.
If you’re spending several days in Greece, consider visiting other islands before or after Santorini. Mykonos and Crete are two popular destinations. Private boats and public ferries can whisk you around the Aegean Sea.
They may be obscure, but Santorini’s wineries are internationally renowned. Winemakers swear by the island’s volcanic soil, which infuses unique flavors and characteristics into indigenous grapes such as assyrtiko and mantilaria.
While Santorini’s beaches are mainly dark and rocky, they’re still excellent for sunbathing and swimming. Red Beach, Kamari, and Perissa are among the most popular. Most beaches are found on the eastern coast.
“Charming” doesn’t do justice to this esteemed independent bookstore. A group of expats have operated the shop for more than a decade, offering an eclectic selection of tomes, literary events, and a film festival.
There are several dive shops on the island offering scuba equipment and excursions to view the island’s marine life and landscapes. Other vendors rent out snorkeling gear, paddleboards, kayaks, and more.
The ancient town of Akrotiri was buried under volcanic ash for centuries before being excavated in 1967. Its shockingly well-preserved ruins include colorful frescoes and other artwork. Take a tour and travel back in time.
Expect pleasant weather and warm temperatures from April to October, the dry season. From November to March, the island is cooler and rainier, but overall, Santorini enjoys a mild and sunny Mediterranean climate year-round. The island is known to be windy at times, especially during the summer.
