The Donkeys of Santorini

santorini donkeysDonkeys and mules mostly carry visitors from the old harbour of Santorini to the principal town Fira.

Donkeys and mules in Santorini are part of the native charm of the island and can be loads of fun. The first question tourist ask us when they arrive at the old harbour, is if they can ride the donkeys up to the Principal Town Fira or from Oia village to Ammoudi Harbour.

The other choice is the cable car that travels up the path and in three minutes time you’re comfortably in the beautiful town of Fira, Santorini capital, which is at the altitude of 220 meters. But I insist that nothing compares with the donkey ride!!! A memory that will last forever.

“Kamari” Open Air Cinema in Santorini

From ancient times the theatres in Greece were open roofed. With the development of the cinema, films were shown in the local Cafes (kafenio) and central squares of the towns and villages throughout the country, as well as in the theatres.

Due to the popularity of this new type of entertainment, open air cinemas started being created all over the country, with a unique type of architecture.

From this time onwards the cinema became a part of Greek life, and has remained one of the most popular types of entertainment, charming its audience throughout the warm summer evenings.
