Getting down to business right away, Santorini is a 2-3 day detour from Athens if you are planning a Greek holiday. Once you are settled in the beautiful natural beauty your mind again will become restless for something more, especially if you are a city person like me. Santorini has one main town Fira and two small adjoining villages : Oia and Imerovigli all in a length of 18Km and breadth of 12 Km. It has a single airport located in Thira about 5Km from Fira, the main town.
Budget-hack 1: Fly from Athens by Aegean airlines or Ryan Air roundtrip will come as cheap as €70.
Budget-hack 2: Stay in Fira. It is 7 minutes from airport. There is regular bus service at 1.8 Euro from the airport to Fira bus stop. There are many good BnBs available in AirBnB or equivalent sites. Santorini Rooms for example has Double rooms (Max 2 guests) with Safety Deposit Box • TV • Air Conditioning • Refrigerator • Toilet • Patio • Bathroom • Heating •Bath or Shower • Garden view at €40 per night.
