Only 2 days in Santorini

because of the way the flights 'IN' and the ferries 'OUT' work, we will only get two days in Santorini (2 FULL days though) ... Can you help me with priorities of 'MUST SEE' ... (we're not into Winery's) - our days will have to be planned so we don't waste a minute - any suggestions ?? (we've all ridden scooters so that can be an option)

thank you

Liz

Hi Leaping Lizz,

For Ancient Thira - you can scooter up part of the way ... be careful on the loose gravel - the roads in Greece are not like they are here - and then walk up from there. Its a steep walk with some loose gravel so wear suitable shoes.

If you are keen on using scooters then just use them to work your way around the island. Alternatively hire a car. Its not a big island and two days is enough time to see most places of interest.

The village of Pyrgos is definitely worth seeing - park in the square and walk up through the village. I find the traditional settlements/villages interesting and there are several of them close to Pyrgos.

When you visit Oia (if you aren't staying there) then head down to Ammoudi Bay afterwards or before - great place for lunch (if a little pricey but the view is worth it) or to take a swim (follow the path which leads around the headland and you'll no doubt see others swimming. There isn't a beach there (dive off the rocks) but the water is crystal clear and its a lovely place to swim.
