Have you ever wanted to drive around the rim of a volcano and then feast on spinach pies and tomato fritters? If your answer is “OMG, yes”, then we’ve got a great idea. Take yourself on holiday to the Greek island of Santorini. With totally gorg beaches, ancient ruins and a volcano right in the middle, you’re sure to have a blast! Too much? Well, wait till you cruise the caldera in one of our Santorini car hire options…
When you aren’t blazing a trail around the coastline, you’ll “dig” the archaeological excavations and beachfront Santorini hotels that make this destination photo-ready at all times. Yes, Santorini wakes up like this.
In each of Santorini’s busiest districts, you’ll want to hoof it up the winding cliffside walkways, but many of the island’s top sights are scattered throughout several villages, so pick up your Santorini car rental right away.
Roll out to the 11th century BCE at the Ancient Thera site in Kamari, on the eastern shore. It’s layered with history from multiple empires, because who wouldn’t want to get in on that view of the Mediterranean?
Further north and on the west coast, you’ll find the modern-day capital district of Fira. From there, hike around the caldera all the way to charming Oia, or take the scenic route by car and save your feet for dancing in local pubs.
When you get the itch for some wide open space, pack your bathers and a picnic of Greek salad and feta pastries. It’s time for the best kind of road trip ever—a beach trip—so get back in that car hire in Santorini and roll out like the tide!
While you’re scoping out Ancient Thera, catch some rays at nearby Kamari Beach, which happens to be quite the hot spot despite the old-school neighbourhood. For a quieter crowd, drive south to Perivolos Beach and lay your towel on the black sand.
