Summer has officially begun, at least in Greece and Santorini, and temperatures are already beginning to soar. While cars drivers are increased on the road, the trip can be challenging at times. Here are some summer driving tips, which will help you make the most of your summer travel plans.
Summer is vacation time, which means more road congestion. This leads, some times, to traffic jams and frustrated drivers. Do your part to avoid things that can irritate other drivers. Be patient with drivers and remember that vacationers are not familiar with the area so they may make sudden stops or drive slow. Cooler heads should prevail as temperatures rise.

9 museums in Santorini for a complete view of the island’s culture.
The exhibition is structured in four units, referring to the history of research at Thera, the geology of Thera, the island’s history from the Late Neolithic to the Late Cycladic I periond (early 17th century B.C.) and the heyday of the city at Akrotiri (mature Late Cycladic I period, 17th century B.C.). In the last unit, in particular, various aspects are presented, such as the plan and architecture of the city and its organization as an urban centre, the emergent bureaucratic system, the development of the monumental art of wall-painting, the rich and diverse pottery repertoire, the elegant jewellery, the reciprocal influences between vase-painting and wall-painting, and the city’s and the island’s complex network of contacts with the outside word.
Every year, the municipality of Santorini offers a spectacular show for all the island’s cliff side to see which takes place once a year as an honor to all the guests and travelers that visit the beautiful island of Santorini.
A virtual eruption of Santorini’s volcano expected to create a spectacular sight is programmed by the island’s Municipality Geothira Company for September 2016. The show is unique, fireworks and flares over the volcano are being lit to recreate a virtual explosion.
Santorini owes a lot to this volcanic morphology and the presence of these active craters, which have given the island many privileges: from its unique agricultural products to its stunning and world famous image.
Santorini is known best for the Sunset, the Caldera and the Volcano. Although the island has other Volcanic areas, the best known and the largest is Nea Kameni (New Burnt), visible from all sides of the Caldera.
NEA KAMENI – ACTIVE VOLCANO
Nea Kameni rose out of the sea in May of 1707. Indeed a grand sight, the villagers at the time watched with shock, amazement and awe as new land bubbled to the surface. The island continued to grow for several weeks until it subsided in September of the same year. More than 300 hundred years later, the Volcano is one of the most popular spots on the island to visit.
Summer is the Best Time of the Year in Santorini! Whatever you choose to do, it will be a magical experience. With so many choices, it’s hard to know what to do first. One thing is sure – it’s time to relax.
Greek Summers are warm and a favourite summer snack to cool down is Watermelon and Greek Feta Cheese. The combination of sweet, juicy and salty always hits the spot. If you don’t want a heavy lunch, this is the ideal alternative to keep you going through the day. And if you going to preserve this very Greek tradition when you go back home, don’t forget to chill the watermelon in the fridge.
Another favourite in Greece is of course (what else?) – Greek Ouzo. There is nothing quite like fresh fish, village salad and Ouzo at a little tavern by the sea.
