something rare!

you dive in another era, bookshop that reminds you of Dickens's novels, rare editions but worth the visit even for those who do not read. It is something one must visit.

I am a huge book lover and was delighted to find such an awesome bookshop while on my holiday! The shop was amazing and filled with interesting books. I decided that I wanted to buy a book while I was here and was looking for a book written by a Greek author (but written in English!). I was directed to... More

experienced travelers that have graduated beyond trinkets ,cheap souvenirs etc....but you would like a memento of a visit. A book or music CD of a local place is the perfect gift for others or for yourself. You MUST stop in for a bit here and enjoy...whether you want a first edition Zorba the Greek or something around 20 euro....it's all... More

...or City Lights in San Francisco, you'll love Atlantis Books. Same general aesthetic, and a true anachronism in Mediterranean Oia. Friendly staff, mostly expats, and lots to look at and browse through. Give yourself at least half an hour if you're a book lover. It's also a cool and shady break from the sun on the main promenade.

An excellent book cave to descend into. It has quite a few literary treasures residing here. The gentleman that worked there (don't remember his name) made some good recommendations. Do stop by even if its just to check it out. They accept card as well as cash :)

Unique store in Santorini. You'd normally see jewelry shops, souvenir shops and restaurants around Santorini, but this book store stands out. It's small, and intimate.

Tracked down this little gem after it was recommended to me by a friend. The owner was very helpful and took the time to chat with me and my friends. Would recommend a visit here to anyone in the area!

Atlantis books has many books packed into a small area. The shop has a very cool set up and the look is very intriguing and unique. There are several very rare first addition books they have on display.

A special bookshop with knowledgeable, relaxed staff. It was genuinely a pleasure to nose around - the array of first edition books is astonishing. The best place we visited in Santorini.

My family discovered Atlantis Books when we were following the crowds along Marble Street towards the famous Oia sunset. We passed by in a hurry, but made a point to return afterwards. What a truly unique and well stocked little bookstore. Not only do they stock the current bestsellers for beach reading, but if you want to take advantage of... More
