Located in Perissa on the southern edge of the island, Dorians makes the ideal place to head during the evenings and relax over a cocktail while sharing some bar snacks.

Things to do in Santorini in February
The famous Santorini cable car is one of the best ways to enjoy panoramic views of the island. This cable car will transport you from the Santorini Port all the way up to Fira 220m above sea level providing you with fantastic sea vistas along the way, so make sure you take your camera with you. When you arrive in Fira, you'll find plenty of things to see and do, with cafes, shops and museums peppered throughout.
The cool and often overcast weather makes February a fantastic time to take a hike from Fira to Oia. The path connecting these two villages stretches on for more than 7 miles, but the terrain is fairly flat and safe, making it suitable for travellers of all ages, as long as you've got a bit of stamina. You'll find plenty of shops and cafes along the way where you can stop off for a bite to eat or something to drink, making for an overall pleasant day out. If you don't fancy walking all the way back, there are plenty of busses you can catch in Oia which will take you back to Fira.
The Mnemossyne Gallery
The Mnemossyne Gallery is one of the most popular art galleries in the whole of Santorini. Unlike a traditional art museum, this gallery is located inside a large house, where you'll find a great collection of artwork and jewellery all of which has been made by local artists. If you're on the lookout for gifts for friends and family back home or some unique souvenirs of your holiday, you'll be pleased to hear that you can purchase many of the pieces in the gallery. Like many attractions in Santorini, the Mnemossyne Gallery boasts a fantastic location with incredible views.
