Santorini is a fun place to shop. Small boutiques dot the villages that sit on the cliff. In the summer months they are open until quite late, so you have time to find the perfect things to take home with you.
Fira is where you’ll find most of the shopping on the island. It has dozens of stores lining its small cobblestoned streets. You’ll find everything from cheap souvenirs to trendy clothing. Santorini is especially known for its jewelry shops. Odos Ipapantis (Gold Street) is lined with them. Lalaounis in the Ypapantis shopping center is a well-known shop for vintage-inspired pieces. The designer has shops all over Greece.
There’s also some good shopping in Oia. It boasts an array of jewelry stores, but what it’s really known for is its art scene. Go there to find exclusive art galleries featuring contemporary Greek art.
