Reviews of Akrotiri, Santorini
dapdep 20 May 2008Visit the lighthouseWhile I was in Santorini, I went to Akrotiri by public transportation, which I had to wait for 30 minutes. My accommodation was in Fira and took me about 30 minutes to get there. The condition of the roads to the village was good. The trip was quite satisfying. I also used a map to know exactly where I am.
The village is picturesque and authentic with small cubic houses but no flowers. It's situated by the sea and has beautiful surroundings. Also it has just a few churches. The local people answered well to our questions when we asked for information. They were probably used to so many tourists.
The area has public telephones, mini market, restaurants, cafes and bars.
My favorite thing about the village was the walk by the sea.
We didn't see enough of the village to say a lot about it, but it looks OK. My tip for future visitors would be to go and see the light house at the beach.
