“A MUST SEE!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2013

DO NOT visit Santorini without seeing this beautiful little town. Typically greek. Typically island like. Typically santorini. Park ur bike/quad at the roundabout and just walk up the steps. You will walk through tiny streets that take you through to churches, houses, cafes, shops..
You can not take a bad photo here no matter what! You'll even see dressed up donkeys waiting to have their photo taken with you :)
It's beautiful, romantic and free! Don't miss it!

“Nice stroll”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2013

It's small, easy to walk it, nice places, but nothing much there to see, ould recommend it, but don't expect too much. But make sure you stop there for hour of two, you'll like it. Away from mass tourism, nice place to spend time on afternoon.

“Must go!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2013

I so loved Pyrgos Village. Worth a visit. One of my faves! Spectacular island views. Franco's Cafe atop Pyrgos is nice to relax...classical and 30's/40's type music. Very chill. Old houses, narrow streets, lots of uphill climbs, churches, etc. Go! :)

“Ancient Santorini”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2013

Very interesting and well worth a visit. No need to buy an expensive tour if you are in any way adventurous - the island bus service is good, simple and relatively cheap.
