Also of interest are the library, the monastic archives, and the kitchen.
The volcano:
The volcano in Santorini is the main reason of how the island looks like. It is an active volcano and it last erupted in 1956. Many groups provide tours to the volcano starting at around EUR 18. It takes about 2 hours for complete tour and tour operators take you all the way to active craters.
Winery:
Wines are the best thing you can take back from the Santorini Island. The volcanic soil provides an altogether amazing climate for grapes to flourish. The island has many wineries all over the island. Volcan wines museum, Santo wines, Hatzidakis winery: Pyrgos
Fira:
Fira is the main town on the island located on top of the cliff. The town doesn't have much to offer apart from its stunning beauty, amazing landscapes, the museum, few bars, and clubs. Probably the best thing in the town is Museum on Prehistoric Thira where the story of Akrotiri is told through collection of Bronze Age and Neolithic artifacts. Other things to do include a visit to any winery which will give you a free tour. There are some amazing bakeries as well in the town. Visit the churches and see the amazing artwork found in them. You can swim in the hot springs and get a close up view of the volcano. Tours are also organised for the volcano. you can walk along Agiou Mina street which goes down the cliff, from the south part of town all the way to the cable car. It provides the stunning views of Fira and the surrounding areas.
Oia:
Oia, also known as La is another picturesque town located in the western part of the island. Loved by both tourists and artists, the town is the destination for all the cruise ships coming from all over the Europe. Among the few things to see in Oia is Fort Londsa, a ruined castle which was the seat of Argyri family. The town also includes numerous churches, an old windmill. The grand sea captain's houses from the 1800s is another thing you should'nt miss in Oia. Naval Maritime Museum is also located in Oia which displays figureheads, ancient nautical charts, seamen's chests, old maritime equipment, drawings and patterns, models of old and new Thiran ships and historic photographs and has a library containing many letters and documents.

Little Venice Quarter:
As the name suggests, Little Venice Quarter is a section of Mykonos where the barrier amid the buildings and the sea is nonexistent. Made during the 16th and 17th Centuries by wealthy sea merchants, Little Venice Quarter is situated on the western edge of Chora near Alevkantra beach. Waves lap the sides of the charming houses, cafes and restaurants that sit elegantly perched on the water’s edge. The romantic atmosphere and ethereal attractiveness of Little Venice Quarter make it a favorite hangout for artists who have recreated the scene in countless paintings.
Kato Mili:
Visit the windmills to see how the Venetians harnessed the power of the wind, and enjoy a panoramic view of the town and ocean. Kato Mili, or the “lower windmills” in Greek, is a row of historic windmills that stand facing the sea in the town of Chora. A defining feature of the Mykonos landscape, the wood-and-straw capped windmills were first built in the 16th Century by the Venetians. Today, the preserved windmills are iconic relics that have been converted to museums and are among the most popular attractions in Mykonos. There are presently 16 windmills on Mykonos of which 7 are situated on the famous landmark hill in Chora.
Paradise Beach:
Well-known for its nonstop beach parties, Paradise Beach regularly hosts world-famous DJs who entertain guests at the massively popular open-air nightclub, Paradise Beach Club. During the day, several open-air lounges on Paradise Beach serve cocktails to beachgoers while they relax beneath grass-roofed cabanas and umbrellas. No trip to Mykonos is complete without a visit to Paradise Beach, one of the best popular party spots in all of Greece and home to the island’s largest nightclub.
Elia Beach:
Less busy and more laid back than the party beaches, Elia Beach is accessible by bus service from Mykonos Town and boat service from Platis Gialos.You can find watersport rentals, restaurants, bars and hotels dotted along the shore. On the fine-sand beach, the relaxed atmosphere is characterized by the beachgoers resting under cabanas or wading in the clear blue ocean. Elia Beach is the longest beach on Mykonos.
Panormos Beach:
Those forwording for an extra relaxing beach contact can head to the north side of Mykonos, where a cozy bay forms Panormos Beach, and a cove protects the area from high winds. Less advanced and tough to ability than the other shore, Panormos Beach has fewer accommodations and fewer guest.The quiet beauty of this beach does attract a regular crowd that enjoys the beach volleyball area and the shaded taverna. Stroll along the white sand or enjoy a walk in the surrounding countryside.
Platys Gialos Beach:
On the south side of Mykonos lies Platys Gialos Beach, a family-friendly beach where various hotels are placed. Hotel visitors staying on Platys Gialos can walk precisely from their rooms to the beach to relax on a sunbed or revel in watersports. Platys Gialos is also a mini travel hub where taxi-boats vacate automatically for the island’s other popular beaches. Placed just a short distance from the main town of Chora, Platys Gialos Beach lies in a picturesque half-moon bay. Along the beach there is an plenty of Greek and Italian restaurants as well as cheap and pleasant Mediterranean take-away.
Panagia Paraportiani:
Famous spirituals sites on Mykonos can also be found along the coastline, and Panagia Paraportiani is one of them. Placed at the access to the Kastro area of Chora, the whitewashed walls of this seaside church form an exclusive shape due to the building’s unusual structure. Five limited churches that were made on top of each other creation in the 14th Century became the Panagia Paraportiani that can be seen today. The asymmetrical shape and rare solution of building styles combined with the ocean aspect have helped to make Panagia Paraportiani one of the most photographed sites in the world.

Plaka:

Too touristy for some, this old quarter of the city, clustered on the slopes of the Acropolis rock, is still one of Athens' best sights. Strings of red-roofed buildings with balconies dripping with bougainvillea sit alongside Neo-Classical mansions, all connected by a tangle of streets that are a joy to get lost in. There are plenty of arts, crafts and pottery shops to browse, and although it can be somewhat commercial, you'll still find authentic tavernas and street cafes where you can rest your weary heels (and gulp down a glass of chilled retsina wine, of course). Bakaliarakia, on Kidathinaion Street, is the oldest tavern in Athens and specialises in traditional cuisine..
Go island-hopping:

Athens' port of Piraeus is just a metro ride away from the city centre, and provides the gateway to a flock of idyllic islands just off the coast. Or there's even tiny Angistri, a pine-clad beauty loved by hikers and a haven for anyone who just wants to potter around quiet coves and drop in at local tavernas on their weekend break. There's Aegina, a delightful home away from home for many Athenians, at just an hour's boat ride away. Or there's Hydra, once the haunt of Picasso and Chagall, its pretty port lined with marble flagstones and elegant townhouses. Take your pick, or read our full guide to 20 gorgeous Greek Islands if you want to hop a little further...

Get a proper kebab:

Greece is the birthplace of this quintessential late-night snack, but the authentic souvlakiayou'll find in Athens are a million miles from the greasy meat kebabs you get at 2am on a Saturday night, back in the UK. Thanasis on Mitropoleos Street is said to boast the best kebab in town but we'll let you be the judge... Watch out for the differences as well: a pitta-kebab is specifically minced lamb or beef, while a pitta-souvlaki contains pork cooked on a skewer, and a pitta-kotopoulo is the chicken variety. All usually come with salad, tzatziki and onions, or whatever combination you like.

Experience Dinner in the Sky:

Psirri is also home to some of the best bars and restaurants in Athens such as Gostijo, Beer Time and the exceptional Dinner in the Sky. Like a cross between a theme park ride and a top-notch restaurant, you'll have to strap into your seat at the table, as you're hoisted 50 feet in the air, to enjoy your cocktails and fine dining as you slowly rotate with a unique, open-air view of the city's most recognisable landmarks. Book a package in advance on the website; the full 5-course menu starts from €120 per person.

Tour Athens' Street Art:

In what feels like a world apart from the marble temples of the Acropolis, the lanes of Athens have some of the highest concentrations of contemporary art in the world. Public walls and hidden corners of neighbourhoods like Gazi and Monastiraki have been an open-air canvas for political and social messages since the 1990s and since there are over 2000 pieces, the best way to explore them is through a guided walking tour. The perfect alternative experience to cap off your weekend break in Athens.

Astir Beach:

It is traditionally additional about town breaks than beach holidays, however just 13km (kilometers) south of the city centre you will find Astir Beach, in the tranquil suburb of Vouliagmeni. As well as miles of postcard-perfect shoreline stretching out on a peninsula in the Med, there’s plenty of leisure facilities with restaurants, jet-skiing and other watersports, and a spa. Unfortunately you will have to pay for the privilege of this private paradise - access to the beach is €28 at weekends in the summer but it's a lot quieter and cheaper during the week (€18). Try the town beaches in Glyfada, slightly nearer the city, if you want a cheaper alternative.

Mount Lycabettus:

Make time for a visit, not only for the superlative views from the platforms, but for the chance to catch a show at the amphitheatre, which regularly hosts music concerts and events in the summer. You can't miss the looming shadow of Mount Lycabettus, a pine-carpeted, 300 metre-high limestone hill which overlooks the city. You can walk up to the top of the hill on a choice of footpaths, or take the Lycabettus Funicular train which takes just 10 minutes and costs €7 (catch it at Ploutarchou and Aristippou Streets). Evening is the best time to visit, when you can watch the sun sink behind the Athens skyline.

National Archaeological Museum:

The modern museum explores the findings which have been made on the site of the Acropolis; there’s over 4000 objects on display. The collections are divided into five different focuses and eras, such as the Gallery of the Slopes of the Acropolis, where you can peer through the glass floor into the excavation site itself for a glimpse into everyday life, thousands of years ago. The long-awaited Acropolis Museum opened in 2009 and was immediately heralded as one of Europe’s best museums.

Destinations

Santorini

the island of Santorini is doubtless the better absorbing island of Greece.Commonly its name is amassed than ample to spread in mind brilliant sunsets and scenery, white, red and black sand beaches, impressive traditional houses, balconies with view of the Volcano and lively nightlife. All the above, along with the remains of the antiquity and the myth of the Lost Atlantis justify the words which the tourists determine this wonderful island.
The active volcano of Santorini erupted in the 50's and ruined many towns of the island. Santorini is also called Thira and its capital is the town of Fira. It is a very touristy island and therefore fairly costly.
The character lives mainly off culture and tourism. The islands largest export product is soil; 2.000.000 tons a year are used all over the world, mainly to make concrete. The Suez channel was built with this concrete for example. Most holidaymakers stay where the beaches are, Kamari and Perissa, but these places really do not represent the island's amazing distinctiveness. If you can, you should try to stay in Fira, Imerovigli or Oia, the towns on the cliffs, which are very beautiful and full of little cafes, shops and places of interest. There is a bus that goes to the beaches every day, and it is much better to be in the towns in the evening and on the beaches during the day. If your holiday in Monolithos you will have more truce and muted.
