10 Things to Do in Imerovigli That You Shouldn't Miss

October 28, 2017 Osvaldo Hartline

Imerovigli looks exactly as a Santorini village should: iconic whitewashed buildings with sapphire domes, narrow crisscrossing walking paths, epic sunsets. Set sail on a guided boat tour of nearby volcanic features or spend the day exploring the remains of Skaros, a 13th-century Venetian palace. Cap it all off with a simple but decadent meal of local delicacies.

100% amazing experience, we did the day time cruise. We booked the semi private but it ended up being private because no one else booked! The crew was above and and beyond! The lunch was some of the best food we had on the island. Margarita is so sweet and she answered all our questions. Plenty of time to swim or relax. We would 100% do this again. Thank you !!!

If you have to choose one thing to do while in Santorini, we would highly recommend Panos as your skipper aboard the Alex. He and Dimitri were hospitable, informative, and gracious. We Santorini from vantage points we never would have experienced otherwise and got a terrific education/history/geology lesson of this remarkably beautifully place. To boot, he prepared and served us tasty, local cuisine as we prepared to watch the sunset. We had a memorable week in Santorini but this was surely our highlight.

SantoTour Transfers & Private Guided Travel

The SantoTour company was created by tour guides with experience that decided to offer their services directly to the guests of Santorini. After working for several years all over Greece, in 2014 we decided to settle down on beautiful Santorini. We gained valuable experience in the field of tourism over the past years, working mainly on excursions in Santorini during summer and during winter we continued offering our services. After that, we decided to focus on the tailor made tours and excursions and the excellent service.

Amazing people especially the owner Kostas and our tour guide Nikolas. We had an AWESOME time on our first day, we got to see the sights in Oia, the Black Beach, and the "secret" spot that only Nikolas knows!. I would recommend this company to my friends who plans to visit Santorini. If given the opportunity to visit Santorini again, I would call them in a heartbeat! They treated us like friends, not as customers! The hospitality extended all the way to Greek Night. We couldn't ask for more! Santotour ROCKS!

I was picked up at the bus station by Aegean Divers for my two tank dive. We headed back to the dive shop to load up the gear and meet the team. I was the only diver scheduled for the day, and I was told that they would not use boats due to the cost plus it was the start of the season, so we did two shore dives. There were other dive operators there, and it was the same situation, shore dives for a couple of tourist divers. It was nice to have the Dive Master to myself, and he was really good, and had safety in mind throughout the dive. The water was cold, it was only 18 C, however the air temperature was hot at around 26 C, so suiting up in a 5mm wet suit and walking along the beach with a tank on was a bit of a concern for overheating. I was disappointed with both dives, as they were non-interesting, as there wasn’t much coral or fish to see. The surface interval was roughly a 45 minute break with bottled water and a welfare Sandwich. At the end we headed back to the dive center, where they had cold showers to rinse off with. Upon leaving, I was given a gift of an Aegean Divers t-shirt, which I thought was a nice touch.

Bella Aurora & Thalassa

Come! Sail away with us on a memorable voyage.You will board our authentic Brigantine Thalassa at the picturesque old port of Fira.We will set sail for the small port of the volcano. When we arrive your guide will lead you up to the rim of the volcanic crater where smoke rises up and the stones are hot to the touch. Remember to bring good walking shoes and a hat to protect you from the sun.Leaving the volcano, our ship heads for the “hot springs”. There you can bathe in the warm waters (don’t forget your bathing suite and towel) . During the remainder of our voyage, we pass by Thirassia, where you have the chance to swim again in the blue crystal cleal waters while the captain and his crew prepare plenty of traditional Greek meze (appetizers) and you’ll have the chance to taste the renowned wine from Santorini. Next we come to the northern tip of Santorini and the town of Ia with its two small seaports Ammoudi and Armeni. From our sailing boat we have a unique vantage point for viewing the lovely traditional settlement of Ia. Here you can relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery.Then we will set the sails and head back to Fira enjoying the wine and live saxophone music as the sun magically sets into the sea.

Excellent tour we took of the recommendation off our hotel staff. We paid €68 per person without a hotel transfer. The tour leaves from the old port at Fira. I’d recommend taking the cable car down. For those among you feeling more adventurous, there is the option of riding the donkey down also. Both cost 6 euros but the funicular takes less time.
The itinerary of your journey would consist first of the visit today volcanic island. This phase takes about two hours and is physically demanding. Once this is over, next to proceed to the Hot Springs where the boat docks off the pier and you swim to the Hot Springs. The water is only lukewarm. After this, there is another opportunity to swim close to the island of tholos. 20 moms here and it’s time for a Greek buffet! Food is adequate and tasty. You will be ravenously hungry at the end of all this activity. Next, you proceed to see the sunset. Gorgeous! Wait for the saxophone player to set the mood.
Homeward after, but not before everyone does a Greek dance aboard.
I give these to operators 5 stars for their professionalism, since the phone and variety of experience if they provided us.

Visited Akrotiri with Ramona for a wonderful musical experience. Also had a great experience at the archeological site talking about the meaning of life and the future of mankind with a senior archeologist. We were able to go back in time and get a feeling of life in ancient times and away from the crowded town . The walking was modestly arduous and not for someone who is out of shape.

We stayed in Karterados for 3 days and we went here thrice to have our brunch. I think this is one of the best bakeries on Santorini. They serve very good coffee and we loved the fresh orange juice. Staff very helpful and patient as we could not make a choice from the massive assortment. Please note that there are also seats next to the building.
Open 24 hrs.

Venetsanos Winery is located right above the port of Athinios, overlooking the Caldera. Designed by George Venetsanos, it was opened as the first industrial winery on the island in 1949. This unique winery (now a museum) is literally carved into and hanging onto the cliffs! The winery produces several white and red wines, includes the sweet Vinsanto dessert wine. We enjoyed tasting them all! When paired with food and sipped on the Terrace with the Caldera and all of Santorini at your feet – well, friends, it doesn’t get any better than this! Our Santorini Unique Experience Tour included a stop here. Make sure you allow enough time, because you won’t want to leave. I’d still be there with a wine glass in my hand if they hadn’t dragged me away.

Skaros Rock

Skaros was considered the most important of Santorini's five castle fortresses. The rock was inhabited in medieval times, because the fortress constructed there offered protection from pirates.

Reviewed By Judy R

Amazing and unobstructed views of the Caldera, hillside homes and hotels. It is well worth the walk down to see the Church as well as the surrounding areas. The water is so clear from this viewpoint. The walk back up, while a workout, made the stop at a local cafe even better.
