I like lamb, and avgolemono, but I don't think that's what you're looking for.

I used to date a guy who was Greek (omg totally dreamy) and he would spend a good deal of time in Greece every year. He always said Santorini was like heaven on earth.

My cousin is graduating college next month and for her grad gift I'm taking her to London/Santorini/Athens. We both know people in London, but not Greece. Since the bulk of the planning is up to me I thought I'd try to get some insider info if possible.

Sorry for the late reply, it depends what purpose you're going for really. If you hit up Athens, you'll be relatively close to checking out some really good tourist attractions (The Parthenon, some ancient theatres, museums etc)while still being close to the beach. That being said, it's still just a big city, and as most people (rightfully) complain about, full of gas, bums and filth.

Santorini on the other hand, is a REALLY beautiful place overall. You'll still get to see some old school Greek architecture, and beaches all around. The people are much kinder as opposed to Athens in my experience, and it's funky to get in touch with some really old school Greek stuff (people on donkeys!) and whatnot. Overall though, it all depends on what you're looking to gain out of the whole experience.

EDIT: Oh, and the nightlife at Santorini is amazing, if that's your thing.

Any medium sized coastal village/town is infinitely better than an inland national capital in European countries as a rule.

Generally.

Thanks for the info.

I finally settled on a place to stay in Santorini. I originally wanted to stay on the cliffs of Oia, but I wanted to avoid really heavy tourist areas. I booked http://www.vedema.gr/ , which looks to be in a smaller village more inland on a vineyard, but close enough to Fira and Oia with a car rental (or scooters!). It looks like Santorini beaches aren't really soft sand (volcanic rock instead) but I imagine scuba diving is pretty nice there?

Darkoblivian, I saw that you're from Athens, are you still located there?

Oh by the way if you're swimming on rocky beaches be ready for the cleanest most pristine sea water you have ever experienced in your life however make sure you wear protective footwear of some sort. Sea urchins tend to dwell in the rocky areas so wear swim shoes or something...five fingers would probably be ideal for this assuming they're thick enough.

I'm in New York at the moment until May 5th, when I'll be going back to Greece and Cyprus(for a month). I've been to both Fira and Oia and I think you'll find it quite intoxicating and very beautiful. Like Redrum said, the beaches there are clean and hot and there are some amazing things to be seen should you go scuba diving. One of my favourite places to scuba to be honest. You should have plenty of fun, and a good choice on straying away from heavy tourist areas.
