Santorini

iStock International
The top shopping destination on Santorini is undoubtedly the capital, Thira, where you’ll find a labyrinth of narrow pedestrian streets lined with jewelry shops, the best of which sell handcrafted gold and silver pieces. Wine is also a good buy on the island – Santorini produces some of Greece’s best white wines.

Mati Art Gallery

Founded in 1989 by the Greek-Cypriot sculptor Yorgos Kypris and the art group Studio 71, the Mati Art Gallery displays contemporary sculpture, paintings and installations, as opposed to the touristy kitsch found in many of Thira’s shops.

Santo Winery

Santorini’s volcanic soils support rich vineyards. Because of the strong winds, the vines are woven into a basket shape, with the grapes protected inside. Santorini’s largest producer, Santo Wines, near Pyrgos, overlooks the caldera and offers guided tours of the cellars, wine tasting, and bottles for sale.
