So down the stairs and........overwhelming, amazing. What a great athmosphere, the history drawn on the... More

This place would be a legendary bookstore in any city--the fact that it's located in little Oia just makes you feel like you're getting away with something. From rare first editions to great literature (if you're looking for Fifty Shades kind of stuff, you're out of luck, and...why not challenge yourself?) Atlantis has everything you could want. We picked up... More

For such a small space, there were surprises around every corner. We spent much longer there than expected, taking time to hang out in the "reading room". Employees were friendly and helpful.

Atlantis Books stands out from the rest of the souvenir, jewelry and apparel stores that line the streets of Oia. The vast selection of books and the helpful staff made for a pleasant experience. Craig, one of the owners, not only recommended the perfect book for what I was seeking, but he also helped with dinner plans and a spot... More

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.
