Things to Know When You Travel to Santorini

Fun Things to do in Santorini

During summer, the weather is perfect for activities like a visit to the Museum of Prehistoric Thera, a stay at a cave house, and a meal at Ammoudi beach. Summer is also great for enjoying a movie at an open air cinema, exploring the Archaeological Excavation Site and enjoying an authentic dining experience at a classic Taverna restaurant such as Taverna Aeolus. That doesn’t mean you won’t have fun if you decide to visit Santorini at any other time. You can still experience a variety of indoor activities such as visiting popular shopping malls, boutique stores and movie theatres like the Hondos Center Santorini, the Hondos Center, the Koukla Art, and the Open Air Cinema Kamari where you can book tickets to watch the latest blockbusters.
