Emporio was recommended to us to as an example of a well kept Santorinian village. The castle isn't really a castle - more a collection of small quiant houses, and narrow passages. If you like taking photographs, this is for you.

To see how local people lived 50 or 100 years ago. Nothing has changed - curvy clean and narrow streets, white and yellow houses, small front doors, churches and a half-destroyed Venetian tower. Take a break at Vassili's restaurant 'The Old barber' or Vangelli's café...More

Take my advice.... don’t just go to see the Castelli, stroll around the myriad alleyways of this lovely traditional village. It’s fab, great for photography and gives a great flavour of Santorini village life.

Well worth the walk up the hill and through the quaint narrow pathways for a lovely view. This place doesn't appear to be on the cruise ship tour bus trail so much quieter than Pyrgos. We walked here from Perissa along a donkey path avoiding...More

Emporio, unlike neighbouring Pirgos, seems relatively unspoilt by mass tourism so you can climb the steep streets to the top of the town without being bothered by souvenir sellers etc.

Response from HOWARD C | Reviewed this property |
The best thing to do is go to the Bus Station in Fira, and ask them what time the next bus goes to Emporio, and the Bus number. Check how often the bus runs from Fira, and again for coming back. They will give you a... More
