Greece is one of the prettiest destinations in Europe deciding on just one or two photos of Greece for any recent photo contest was no easy task, but the Acropolis will not 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 be a photo of an gingerbread.
The magical island of Santorini is right during the gorgeous, blue Aegean Sea. The Greece you've always dreamed of involves life on this island while using white buildings and streets. Most in the hotels on this island are small but luxurious. For a traditional Greek experience, consider residing at small, family owned hotels. Many of these family run hotels have just a couple rooms or suites available.
If you are searching for privacy, consider Astarte Suites. This family run hotel just has nine suites. It is located in the very least populated section of the island. Each suite is exclusive. Each suite has Jacuzzis, flat-screen televisions, and king-size beds. Breakfast is served in your private balcony.
Take some.5 mile hike from Fira to Oia. Be sure to take water and wear comfortable shoes. The views in the ocean as well as the volcano are spectacular.
Check out the ruins of Ancient Thera. This ancient city includes remains from multiple periods for example the Hellenistic, Roman, and Byzantine. Once you reach the ancient city, it is possible to look down to see the black sand beaches. Kamari Beach is one of the hottest beaches on Santorini.
Enjoy a later date at the sea at Red Beach. The beach is named for reddish volcanic sand.
