TRAVEL HUSTLE REPEAT GEAR ►
MY FILM MAKING KIT ►

Santorini is by far the most famous island in Greece and for good reason. It’s iconic white and blue houses, dramatic cliffs, and centuries-old cuisine make give it the reputation as the ‘Crown Jewel of Greece.’

When in Fira you have to take a donkey ride up from the port up to the told town. It’s best to take it up now down because the way down is a bit slippery and I wouldn’t recommend it.

Many tourists arriving by cruise ship choose to take a donkey up the 588 steps from the old port to the town of Fira. If you want a faster alternative, there’s a cable car that takes about 3 minutes and costs 5 Euros.

Oia is the northernmost town in Santorini. It’s a picturesque village and from here you have incredible views of the caldera. The entire town in pedestrian friendly, there’s tavernas, souvenir shops and boutiques. Now lets explore Oia!

We are here at Ammoudi Port, this is a small port at the base of Oia. It takes around 200 steps to walk down from Oia, you can also drive down. We are eating today at Dimitris Taverna, which was the first restaurant to be established at the port. From here you have the best sunset from Santorini!

Dimitris restaurant is delicious! We had a rock lobster pasta, white wine, Greek salad, meze plates, and a grilled fish!

Next up are two ancient Greek sites! You may be surprised to know there’s a lot of history on this island.

Akrotiri is considered to be the Pompeii of the Aegean because it has been preserved by volcanic ash. What you see is a village that date back to 1650 B.C., which is the middle Bronze age period. They also found artifacts that date back to the 5th millennia B.C., which is late Neolithic period.

The settlement was destroyed in the volcanic eruption around 1627 BC and was completely buried by volcanic ash, which ended up preserving many frescos, artworks and buildings. It will take you around 1 hour to visit the site. Next up is the ancient city of Thera!

The ancient city of Thera was built in the 8th century B.C. about 1000 years after the volcanic eruption that destroyed Akrotiri. It was built by Dorian’s from Sparta, and named after their leader Theras. From here you have incredible views of Kamari Beach and the Aegean Sea.

A few must see’s here are the ancient Agora, the 2nd century Theatre and the public Stoa, or portico that was supported by 10 Doric columns

Santorini is famous for it’s wine, but did you know that they have one of the best micro breweries in Greece? Donkey Brewery was established in late 2011, and they currently produce up to 70 litres of beer. Yellow, Red and Crazy donkey are the three main beers of the company!

At the brewery you can watch and learn about the whole process of beer making! If your wondering about the name of the brewery is because Santorini is famous for its donkey’s.

If you want to experience a typical Santorinian village, head to Pyrgos, which is located at the highest point on the island. Here you’ll get some amazing panoramic views of the island and get the chance to see its traditional archictecture.

Now let’s head to a winery!

We head to Sigalas winery, it’s located right outside of Oia. Next up is Gaia Winery! It’s situated on the beach in an old factory.

We saved the best for last because there’s nothing quite like experiencing Santorini’s unique caldera by sea.

Today we are sailing around Santorini with Santorini Sailing. We’ll be making a few stops at red beach, white beach, sail through the caldera, stop at sulfur springs and end in Ammoudi Port.

Let’s hit those thermal waters. As you approach the thermal spring the water really warms up.

As we make our way closer to Ammoudi port, we sail closer and to disembark.

We stopped at Saint Nicholas Church to jump off the base. Let’s do this!!!

That was our top 10 things to see and do in Santorini Island! Comment below if you have been or want to go!

Crete's Top 10 Travel Destinations

Crete's (Greece) 10 Best Travel Destinations according to DK

10. Gournia
Gournia is the site of a Minoan palace complex on the island of Crete, Greece, excavated in the early 20th century by the American archaeologist, Harriet Boyd-Hawes. Gournia lies in the municipality of Ierapetra in the prefecture of Lasithi.

9. The Amari Valley & Mt Ida
Crete's Mount Ida is the island's highest summit, sacred to the Goddess Rhea, and wherein lies the legendary cave in which baby Zeus was concealed from his father Cronus. It is one of a number of caves believed to have been the birthplace or hiding place of Zeus. On the flank of this mountain is the Amari Valley, the site of expansion by the ancient settlement at Phaistos.

8. Samaria Gorge
A 14km gorge that descends 1250 meters to sea level through some of Europe's most spectacular natural scenery. The walk up the gorge from south to north is pleasant for the main part but the last 3km, up the Xyloskala is extremely tiring. The most famous part of the gorge is the stretch known as the Gates, where the sides of the gorge close in to a width of only four meters and soar up to a height of almost 300 meters.

7. Gortys
Gortyn is a municipality and an archaeological site on the Mediterranean island of Crete, 45 km away from the modern capital Heraklion. The seat of the municipality is the village Agioi Deka. Gortyn, the Roman capital of Crete, was first inhabited around 3200 BC, and was a flourishing Minoan town between 1600-1100 BC.

6. Rethymno
Rethymno is a city of approximately 40,000 people in Greece, the capital of Rethymno regional unit on the island of Crete. It was built in antiquity, but was never a competitive Minoan centre. It was, however, strong enough to mint its own coins and maintain urban growth. One of these coins is today depicted as the crest of the town with two dolphins in a circle.

5. Phaistos
Phaistos currently refers to a Bronze Age archaeological site at modern Phaistos, a municipality in south central Crete. Ancient Phaistos was located about 5.6 km east of the Mediterranean Sea. The name, Phaistos, survives from ancient Greek references to a city in Crete of that name, shown to be, in fact, at or near the current ruins.

4. Chania
Chania is the second largest city of Crete and the capital of the Chania regional unit. It lies along the north coast of the island, about 70 km west of Rethymno and 145 km (90 mi) west of Heraklion. Despite being heavily bombed during World War II, Chania's Old Town is considered the most beautiful urban district on Crete, especially the crumbling Venetian harbour.

3. Heraklion Archaeological Museum
The Heraklion Archaeological Museum is a museum located in Heraklion on Crete. It is one of the greatest museums in Greece and the best in the world for Minoan art, as it contains the most notable and complete collection of artifacts of the Minoan civilization of Crete.

2. Heraklion
Heraklion is the major city and capital of the largest Greek island of Crete. Its Archaeological Museum holds the remains of the 3000-year old Minoan civilization, which grew around the nearby legendary palace of Knossos (of Minotaur fame), as well as Byzantine churches and a well-preserved Venetian wall and fortress from the 15th century.

1. Ancient Knossos
Knossos is the site of the most important and best known Minoan palace complex in Crete. It is located some 5 km south of Heraklion. According to tradition, Knossos was the seat of the legendary Cretan king Minos. The Palace is also connected with further legends, such as the myth of the Labyrinth and the Minotaur, as well as the story of Daidalos and Ikaros. Excavation has revealed that the site was continuously inhabited from the Neolithic period (7000-3000 B.C.) until Roman times.

Athens (Greek: Αθήνα, Athína - Ἀθῆναι)

20 Things to do in Athens Greece Top Attractions Travel Guide Transcript:

Well, good afternoon from sunny Athens. We are currently exploring the Greek capital. We recently actually spent a few days traveling around Meteora and now we're finishing up our trip here in Athens. We've got two full days to explore the city which isn't a lot of time but we're going to try to do our best.

Our first stop was one of the most recognized sights in Athens - the Parthenon, which was dedicated to the goddess Athena who was seen as the patron of Athens.

After sunset we lingered atop Mount Lycabettus for some night views of the city before taking the funicular down to the bottom. Seeing the Acropolis all lit up at night was a pretty cool sight!

Next up we visited the Temple of Zeus which once housed the statue of Zeus, and was considered one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.

When it comes to shopping, there are a few different options. We made our way to Monastiraki, which is one of the principal shopping districts in Athens. Here we visited both the Flea Market and the antique shops in the area. 

The Agora was the central spot in ancient Greek city-states, and it is where people gathered.

So we are wrapping up our time here in Athens. Any surprises or final thoughts to share? Yeah, something that really surprised me were just the amount of stray animals that I saw on the streets.

I also thought there was really good dining options as well. We had a number of really good Greek meals and also some really good International food too.

Final thoughts, I think this is a really underrated capital in Europe. A lot like Warsaw in Poland so if you have an opportunity to visit Athens in Greece definitely do so.

So what did you think of Athens? Well, I thought it was a really cool city and I actually had a great time here. It kind of reminded me a little bit of Tel Aviv with the Mediterranean feel but also Berlin because it is very artsy and gritty. So it's a really cool place to check out. Great food, lots of attractions. You have a mix of antiquity with urban.

And that's a wrap for Athens! We hope you enjoyed this city guide and that it'll come in handy when you plan your own trip.

This is part of our Travel in Greece series. We're making a series of videos showcasing Greek culture, Greek arts, Greek foods & Greek cuisine.
