Santorini has without a doubt become Greece’s most iconic and well-known island destination.
Its traditional Aegean architecture, spectacular panoramic views, wild landscapes, and countless entertainment options would be attractive to practically anyone who has a passport.
Nonetheless, the Greek summer is admittedly a time of extreme heat, so many argue that the best time to visit and truly enjoy Santorini is actually during the months of autumn.
September and October normally offer completely idyllic weather conditions, with much lower temperatures than are endured in July and August, when the majority of visitors take their tourist pilgrimages to the iconic Greek island.
Of course, one of the most important advantages of an autumn trip to Santorini is that you can see the island when the streets of Oia, Fira, and the rest of its whitewashed villages are considerably less crowded.
This will give you the chance to enjoy a much more relaxing vacation, compared to what you’d have to go through if you visited the island during the high season when at times travelers simply cannot even see some of the most beautiful sights because of crowding.
There are so many jaw-dropping sights to explore on the Greek island of Santorini in September and October that you won’t even know where to begin.
The island’s unique, starkly beautiful backdrop of volcanic rock, along with its traditional Greek blue-and-white houses and winding streets, offer the epitome of unforgettable views to all who see them.
A trip to the island in autumn doesn’t mean that you’ll miss out on anything that the island has to offer. On the contrary, you’ll be able to enjoy its beauty at a much calmer, more relaxing pace. And isn’t that the whole reason for taking a vacation in the first place?
Have you already decided to go to Santorini this autumn, but you just don’t know where to stay? Here are some options.
