2 - 4 Days
This itinerary is for people with 2 to 4 days in Santorini.
If you only have 1 day in Santorini, use the itinerary here.
Tip: By far, the best time I have in Santorini is exploring the towns of Oia, Fira, and Imerovigli. Oia is arguably the most popular of all three towns and offers some of the best views overlooking the Aegean Sea.
For those with multiple days in Santorini, I’d recommend sunset views in different locations each day. This will allow you to get a better feel of the city (Oia castle is my favorite spot).
On beaches in Santorini – everyone has a different preference. I’ve provided a list of some of my favorites below. These beaches are truly unique and gorgeous; they’re covered in either red or black sand. Do some quick research on which ones you like best to allocate more of your time there.
