Historical sites in Santorini

Santorini has a couple of amazing historical sites, both Ancient Thera and Ancient Akrotiri offer a glimpse back at the history of the island and are well worth the trip to visit. There's plenty of information signs at both so you'll learn a lot as you go round.

Family friendly Santorini sights

Santorini isn't the most family friendly island, there used to be a water park but it's been closed for a while now. 

The towns of Parissa and Kamari have hotels with swimming pools that youngsters would enjoy but the beaches are generally volcanic stones and the only real attractions for young people are the open air cinema in Kamari and the caldera cruise boat trip. 

If you're looking to entertain little ones you would be better off looking at another island.

Religious sights in Santorini

There's a number of Greek orthodox churches on the island, several with the traditional Cycladic white wash walls and blue domed roofs but possibly the most famous church on the island is Panagia Episkopi on the outskirts of Mesa Gonia. It has some stunning icons and frescos that will delight anyone who enjoys religious artwork.

Other Santorini sights

The main attraction to Santorini is the unique volcanic makeup of the island and the way the villas, hotels and restaurants are built on the cliff face. For this reason one of the most popular things to do is watch the sun set with a caldera view. You can do this from any of the towns on the west of the main island with popular options being Fira, Oia and Immerovigli.
