Pyrgos is close to some of the best wineries in Santorini and it’s definitely the best alternative place to stay in Santorini if you are looking for a less beaten path. The village of Pyrgos itself is not the Mecca of partying to behonest but it only has a few good restaurants and things to see and do. The great thing is that you can be in Fira or in Perissa and Kamari by bus within 15 mins, since Pyrgos is located at the center of the island. Oia is a bit further though but still not very far. Overall Pyrgos is a great place to stay in Santorini.
