The entertainment choices on Santorini are
as plentiful just as the night is long.
Santorini is very famous for that but also
very good. Most of the bars and night clubs
of Santorini are situated in the island's
capital, Fira, but also in the island's most
beautiful area, Oia, and in the two major
beach resorts, Kamari and Perissa. Fira is
the capital of Santorini Island and also its
commercial centre. It fascinates much people
and for that reason many café, bars and
night clubs have settled there.
To truly experience Santorini, we recommend
attending the several cultural events that
take place on the island. If you are here in
July, you may want to take in the annual
Santorini Jazz Festival (www.jazzfestival.gr),
which has been bringing many international
jazz bands and artists here every summer
since 1997. During August and September, you
can see the Santorini International Music
Festival (tel. 22860/23-166), with
international singers and musicians, gives
performances of classical music at the
Nomikos Centre in Fira. Admission to most
events starts at 15€ ($20). If traditional
entertainment is more to your liking we
suggest attending the traditional festivals
such as the "Ifaisteia" Cultural Festival in
Fira or the Episkopi Festival in Mesa Gonia
on August 15, where you are served fava (a
Santorini lentil dip delicacy).
