Santorini – Cyclades Trip

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.

The Caldeira


Afrodete Hotel, Firostefani


Clean and well-decorated rooms. The view of the small pool from the ground floor room is great !


Firostefani to Fira

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 !

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.

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 !


The end.
