Best areas to visit in Santorini

  • Fira: The capital of Santorini and the cultural hub of the island, Fira is a fantastic place to visit. Built around the volcanic caldera and the Ormos port, the town is surrounded by scenic beauty in every direction. Home to great entertainment, nightlife and activities, the architecture is picturesque, and the town has easily accessible beaches too. 
  • Perissa: Known for its famous black sandy beaches, the coastal village of Perissa is well worth visiting for a relaxing day in the sun or even a longer holiday. Home to the longest beach on the island, Perivolos, the village also hosts archaeological sites for history lovers and has bars and restaurants for a relaxing stay. 
  • Megalochori: Based on the island’s winelands, Megalochori is one of the most popular Santorini villages. With beaches, ancient architecture and a lively culture, you can take in the true Santorini experience here. Traditional housing creates a picturesque view, and the winding alleys and taverns create that true Greek island experience. 



Very positive experience, all was good, nice service at the desk, we got a free upgrade to SUV since we had a lot of luggage, we had full coverage so Sixt just blocked 100EUR for fuel and it was returned the same day as we gave back the car.


Highly recommended, great service with flexibility.
