I will be in Santorini arriving 8:15 pm on August 18th by plane and departing August 20th at 3:30 pm by ferry to Naxos. So I have a day and a half in Santorini staying at Homeric Poems in Firostefani. We are a family of four (two 11 yrs old who have been studying Greece this past year at school). I've done a bunch of research and this is what I've come up with.
Day One: Rent a car for the day. Through the hotel? They say it's 45 euros whether it's for the day or a couple of hours.
-Drive to Akrotiri. Hire tour guide onsite. My understanding is it's about 10 euros per person
-Lunch. Open to recommendations
-Kamari and Ancient Thira
-Stop at a winery on the way back to Fira. Recommendations?
-Dinner near hotel in Fira or Firostefani. Recommendations?
-Watch Sunset from our balcony
-Hike from Fira to Oia (3-4 hrs)
-Lunch Amoudi Bay. Recommendations?
-Taxi back. Pick up luggage at hotel. Get to ferry. Walk or taxi?
-leave to catch 3:30 pm ferry to Naxos. Should I buy my tickets in advance??
I'd actually like to do the hike on the first day but I can't figure out how to work it. As for restaurant recommendations, we love seafood and want to experience traditional greek food in a good atmosphere (i.e.. views, etc.). Willing to pay for it but the best isn't always the most expensive so would love to hear any recommendations. Thank you!
