The view from Atlantis Books south towards Imerovigli and into the caldera. Just incredible!

The Atlantis Bookshop in Santorini is one of my favorite bookstores anywhere. Definitely stop in for a visit (and support the store by buying something) if you’re in Oia. It’s on the main footpath that runs through town and pretty much marks the end of the Fira to Oia hike. The owners and staff are smart and helpful and love to help customers find a great book (or a good gyro) so feel free to start a conversation. The shop is on your left as you’re walking north (towards the sunset). But it’s small and easy to miss – just ask any store owner, “Bookstore?” and they’ll point you in the right direction.

Lotza is nearby and has delicious baklava and great views. Not the best restaurant in Oia, but open for lunch and has good snacks.
