Visited this bookshop when on Honeymoon in Oia. To say it was a breath of fresh air on the main street is an understatement. Besides this and a few more interesting clothes shops, an antiques shop and one jeweller, it's all straight buy the magnet to say you've been tourist shops. This bookshop has books in so many languages I... More

Atlantis Books is one of my favorite book stores in the world! Located in the heart of Oia, it is a perfect stop for any travelers in search of the perfect book (selections in almost all major languages). Its shelves are stalked with all types of treasures both old and new. We stopped in and ended up buying a map... More

Atlantis books is one of those gem bookshops that you might only find once in s lifetime. It is seriously a dream world - like something out of a movie (a spinning bookshelves and pirates movie). Besides the amazing collection of curated classics and modern wonders - this book shop is home to some amazing posters, hand made journals and... More

I was in this shop in the late winter and knew I'd have to come back. There were even more titles and more 1st edition treasures this time around, and the owner of the shop was there for the season. He is a very sharp bookkeep and recommended several things I'd just read and loved, which meant he was on... More

Atlantis Books is truly one of a kind. They have books for everyone, including incredibly rare first editions that you won't find anywhere else. To be able to spend time in a book shop like this, on an island like Oia, is an incredible experience. I couldn't recommend it more as a highlight of any Greek vacation.

Such an amazing thing to step out from the madding crowd and into a quiet space dedicated to conversations and music and meetings and stories. The guy behind the desk was very knowledgable and helped us out tremendously with tips on where to go and what to eat. They seems to be having some troubles with their landlord, but the... More

This extraordinary oasis nestled into the heart of Oia is a true treasure. It is an iconic bookstore...up there with Shakespeare Books in Paris. It should be listed under 'attractions' vs. shopping :) Because it is not about the things you can buy so much as the things you discover...not only discover upon the shelves but that which you will...

This is a neat little store. I wish I could recommend a visit, but the owner doesn't come across as very friendly. It's a shame. Places like this are disappearing, and to find one in a tiny town like Oia in the middle of the Mediterranean is something that should be applauded. They have an impressive inventory considering the obvious... More

The coolest bookstore on the Island. It has a great selection of books, you can buy Greek classics as a souvenir, and their upstairs terrace is great for pictures. Loved walking through this bookstore, but I was sad to hear that it is closing :( Small independent bookstore like these need to be saved. Make sure you visit and support!

The most adorable book store I'll probably ever see! It's beautiful filled with old favorites and amazing quotes on the walls. It's a dream I just wanted to move in with them. And I loved how much they cared for local animals! Definitely recommend stopping by
