Santorini Cycladia Tips

Small tips to make your stay safer & easier
  • Drink bottle water, since water in Santorini is not safe to drink.
  • International recognized credit cards are accepted in most of restaurants & shops but don’t forget to have some cash, always useful in order not to look for an ATM at 3.00 in the morning in case you are in a place that does not accept it.
  • Weather is usually good, especially during the summer month but make sure you carry sunburn cream and wear hat+ sunglasses because the sun may be threatening.
  • Evenings can be fresh and windy in early July and September
