The two most popular Santorini cliff-perched villages
Travel memories are made of this
The two white-washed villages listed below take root on the island's high steep volcano rim. They are immensely photogenic. Their views of sheer cliffs and the deep-blue bay are breathtaking. Imeroviglia and Firostefani are also rim villages that attract tourists. They are located between Fira and Oia.

Popular Santorini seaside villages
Kamari and Perissa
They are moderate-sized sea resort villages. They are less charming than the cliff-perching towns, but have wide beaches directly on the Aegean Sea.

Restaurants, nightlife, and cruises
Santorini has many interesting restaurants. Some have outdoor terraces overlooking the caldera bay. They are great spots for viewing the celebrated sunsets. The experience will be one of your most treasured memories of Greece.

It's lively in Santorini, especially in the village of Fira. For the young, the clubbing-till-dawn culture is well entrenched.

Many cruise ships call upon Santorini because it is cruise-ship friendly.
