Santorini - 1981 vs 2011

Jump to last reply

I went to Santorini in 1981 as a young graduate, with a backpack and not very much money. I was living in Europe for one year after graduation, working in Amsterdam at a job that did not pay much but that allowed me plentiful vacation time. My trip was in April. I was travelling alone, and met some people from Australia and California. We had a wonderful time. I stayed in Thira, and we "discovered" the red beach, spent next to nothing. I wonder whether Oia even had an places to stay. It was enchanting.
Well, its 30 years later and my husband and I want to go back to celebrate our 30th anniversary. Our economics have changed, and from preliminary research, so has Santorini (of course I have seen all the magazine covers over the years). So, all you Greek travelers out there - what should we expect? We'd like to stay in Oia, I think, although I am open to suggestion, and given that it looks like we do this about once every 30 years ( and he has not yet been) we'd love your help in planning the perfect trip...

Oh, and as an aside, we're thinking of combining Santorini with either Istanbul or Venice...
Many thanks, in advance.
