Hi there,
We are looking for your well travelled advie on where is the best town to stay while in Santorini. I will be heading there in September and would love to hear what you think.

Also any advice you might have about great hotels/resorts/villas to book would be really appreciated. We are looking for something really lovely but not too pricey.

Thank you in advance

Hey mel . . i stayed in Fira . . loved it..It depends what you like . . if u like the beaches then u could try perrissa. . fira is central but beautiful.. one can base themselves there & travel by bike/car all over...

santorini is the place to be ..

I loved every single moment of Santorini! The ship pulled into Fira (Thira) to many wonderful shops, restaurants, bars, etc.

Most of the "scenic" pics you see of Santorini are taken in Oia...stunning.

Unfortunately, I can't help you on the hotel situation (since the ship sailed at 6pm), but if you need help on restarants, I can tell you the delicious ones I ate at!

I stayed in Fira. The city is lovely but it is really overcrowded. If I had to go to Santorini again I would probably stay in Oia, which is really gorgeous and a bit more peaceful.
