Sotiros

Sotiros is a gorgeous little village offering views over the Aegean with less than 100 houses, a handful of places to stay, a couple of little churches and a single taverna. There's no beach but there is one just 5 minutes away on the west coast.

Rhodes Town

Rhodes town is the capital and lies on the northern tip of the island. It's separated into 2 sections, the old town with it's cobbled streets and collection of historical sites and the modern, bustling new town with an almost endless amount of hotels, restaurants and nightlife.

Lindos

Lindos is a gorgeous village midway down the south east coast of Rhodes. It's a maze of narrow cobbled streets and shops selling locally produced goods like lace and embroidery. Plus, there's the incredible acropolis of Lindos on the mountain above the village.

Ancient Thera

Ancient Thera is found between Kamari and Perissa and is the ruins of an ancient city that was built in the 9th century BC and abandoned in 726 AD. It’s been excavated since 1895 by various archaeologists and the findings can be seen at the archaeological museum in Fira.

Sunset in Oia

Watching the sunset in Oia is probably one of the most popular things to do in Santorini, it's an amazing view and you’ll most likely find yourself waiting for the sunset on more than one evening, finding a bit of space to yourself can be challenging though.

Santorini Cable Car

The Cable car isn't really an attraction as such, it runs from the old port up to the main town of Fira above and allows you to bypass the 600 steps which takes 20 to 30 minutes to walk and is particularly challenging in the summer heat.

Skaros Rock

Skaros rock is a natural rock formation on the edge of Imerovigli, it’s a fantastic place for a hike where you’ll be rewarded with incredible views over the caldera and the hillside buildings of Imerovigli, Firostefani and Fira as well as Oia in the distance.

Sunset in Fira

The Sunset in Fira is a fantastic event and enjoyed by almost everyone in the town. The best thing to do is find yourself a restaurant or bar that has a Caldera facing balcony and simply sit back and relax as the sun goes down.

Caldera Cruise

The Santorini Caldera cruise is offered by almost every travel agent on the island, it consists of a visit to the volcano (Nea Kameni), along with a trip to the hot springs, a stop off for lunch and some sailing around the coast.

Pyrgos

Pyrgos is a fairly compact and traditional Cycladic village with small winding streets and the usual white and blue houses. There's a good selection of hotels as well as restaurants and tavernas both on the main street and dotted around the town too.
