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. 

Summer in Santorini

Summer will see Santorini become your playground with gorgeous weather and endless activities to enjoy. Drive up the coast and visit one of the famous red or black lava sand beaches peppered around the island between volcanic rock cliff-faced beaches. Take your car hire in Santorini up to Mésa Vounó for the most spectacular views of the island and see ancient city ruins. Watch the sun set from the 15th-century Oia Castle and relax for the evening with good food and friendly locals.

One of the few car rental companies in Santorini that offer a Zero (0) Excess cover option. Although Sixt were more expensive, I ended up going with them for this extra peace of mind. Car (VW Up!) was near brand new, very clean, staff at airport branch were very friendly and checkout/in processes were very quick. Would definitely recommend!

Best quality/price balance. Great company service. The personal was very polite and attentive. We had a problem with the car and the propose us to change it in less than 40' for another one. If you rent it at Fira is it possible to give it back directly at the airport.
