Summer is upon us (although us Brits wouldn’t be so sure about that one) and so begins the great holiday rush. One such popular resort in Europe is that of Santorini, an island just off Greece’s mainland. There’s a lot to like about the place, with some fantastic geography thanks to its volcanic cone and all the great mythology that comes from Greece and its islands.
For those who intend to visit the island, there’s now an app to help guide the way. Experience Santorini is available in iPhone and iPad varieties, both offering a user friendly and welcoming way of helping its users get acquainted with the island. It promises to reveal the place’s darkest secrets and offers more than 500 suggestions for places to stay, eat, shop and enjoy. The app works offline also to ensure that there are no pesky excessive roaming data charges involved too. As is always useful with such things, the app tells the user what attractions are nearby them, whether it be a beach, museum, archaeological site or just a nice cafe to relax at.
The iPad version also boasts more than 20 minutes of videos offering interviews with archaeologists and winemakers of the area amongst others.
Throughout the rest of the app, the general ambience and design looks ideal for the tourist, so hopefully it’ll be a great help to anyone visiting Santorini this summer.
The app is out now and priced at $4.99 for the iPhone/iPod Touch version and $6.99 for the iPad HD version.
