Greece is among the prettiest destinations in Europe deciding on only a few photos of Greece to get a recent photo contest was no easy task, though the Acropolis won't be ignored. Our Greek vacation included Athens, Mykonos, Paros and Santorini as well as the photo that basically won second place in the contest would have been a photo of your gingerbread.
The magical island of Santorini is appropriate during the gorgeous, blue Aegean Sea. The Greece of your dreams involves life on this island while using white buildings and streets. Most with the hotels on this island are small but luxurious. For a traditional Greek experience, consider staying at small, family owned hotels. Many of these family run hotels have only a few rooms or suites available.
If you would like privacy, consider Astarte Suites. This family run hotel just has nine suites. It is situated in minimal populated area of the island. Each suite is exclusive. Each suite has Jacuzzis, flat-screen televisions, and king-size beds. Breakfast is served on your private balcony.
Take several.5 mile hike from Fira to Oia. Be sure to take water and wear comfortable shoes. The views with the ocean as well as the volcano are spectacular.
Check out your ruins of Ancient Thera. This ancient city includes remains from multiple periods such as the Hellenistic, Roman, and Byzantine. Once you get to the ancient city, it is possible to look down and discover the black sand beaches. Kamari Beach is among the most widely used beaches on Santorini.
Enjoy at a later date at the sea at Red Beach. The beach is named for reddish volcanic sand.
