We finish the Cyclades trip with Santorini. I had a real crush on the volcano and hot springs – it was a great experience, and the village of Oia, so picturesque and pleasant. But, in my opinion, three days in enough.
Afrodete Hotel, Firostefani
Clean and well-decorated rooms. The view of the small pool from the ground floor room is great !
Firostefani to Fira
Nea Kameni – The Volcano
From the Old Port of Santorini
You can go around in less than an hour
Amazing lunar landscape surrounded by the sea
Almost on Mars
Amazing view of the Caldeira
Palea Kameni – Hot Springs
This excursion (Volcano + Hot Springs) takes approx 3 hours, from 11:00 to 14:00 or 14:00 to 17:00 (high season) – 20€
From the Old Port you can go by donkey. A little creepy but fun and a good experience at low prices !
Sunset in Fira
Beaches Tour : Red Beach, White Beach, Black Beach
Boats full of people, small private beaches of pebbles, no shade. A nice boating activity but nothing exceptional, for me the beaches doesn’t worth it.
Red Beach White Beach
A pleasure to get lost in these streets before a good meal in a fresh fish restaurant
Pretty little village, Oia (pronounced Ia), is “the place to be”. Picturesque alleys, breathtaking views, beautiful little restaurants …
The sunset is obviously amazing, but I do not think it is worth the wait and the crowd present (this is really an adventure, trust me !)
Oh Greece, you caught my heart !
