Which Greek Island Blog


Pastida isn't one of the most popular tourist resorts but it does still have all the facilities you might need. There's a small selection of hotels and restaurants as well as bakeries, supermarkets, cash machines, car hire shops and more.

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.

Ancient Akrotiri

Ancient Akrotiri is a Minoan Bronze Age settlement close to the modern village of Akrotiri. The ancient village was buried by the volcanic eruption that created the caldera and made the island the way it is and dates back over 3500 years.

Museum of Prehistoric Thera

The Museum of Prehistoric Thera houses many artefacts that were discovered in excavations on the island, particularly from the Ancient Thera archaeological site as well as impressive vases and sculptures dating back as far as the 5th century BC.


Oia is the second most popular resort on the island behind Fira. It’s a beautiful village perched on top of the caldera with amazing views. It’s a romantic little village and very popular with couples and honeymooners, it also hosts many weddings every year.


Fira is the capital of Santorini, it's a beautiful town that looks like it’s grown out of the hillside with whitewashed and pastel coloured houses, upmarket hotels and restaurants offering stunning views out across the caldera and loads of nightlife options.


Akrotiri is a small village located at the southwestern end of Thira in Santorini. Akrotiri is not a developed tourist destination so don’t expect the sort of facilities you’d have in Fira or Oia. What it does have is a Cycladic charm about it, with the usual narrow streets.

Archaeological Museum

Thassos Archaeological museum is located close to the old harbour and right next to the Ancient Agora in Limenas. It's just 2€ per person and consist of pottery, sculptures and tools that have been excavated from the island plus models of how structures would have looked.


Theologos is a traditional village built into the natural beauty of the Thassos hillside. Once the capital of the island, now it's a small village with winding cobbled streets that's lovely to spend a morning or afternoon wandering around, exploring and enjoying the scenery.


Limenas is the capital and largest town on Thassos and is often referred to as Thassos Town. It's home to the main port on the island and links to Keramoti port on the mainland. It has everything you need including plenty of hotels, a wealth of restaurants.
