Santorini's villages can be divided into four categories: a little
touristy, very touristy, incredible touristy and finally the fourth category:
traditional villages. The last-mentioned category is in a minority.
Unfortunately, there is no getting away from the fact that Santorini's
attraction have resulted in an almost uncontrolled exploitation. This
is most obvious in Fira and Oia.
Fortunately, there is breathing rooms as well, like Megalochori,
Emborio and Exo Gonia. The tourist resorts of Kamari, Perissa
and Perivolos is described under the headline of Beaches.
