Greece is among the prettiest destinations in Europe deciding on just one or two photos of Greece for a recent photo contest was no easy task, but the Acropolis will not ignored. Our Greek vacation included Athens, Mykonos, Paros and Santorini and also the photo that really won second place in the contest would have been a photo of an gingerbread.
The magical island of Santorini is correct during the gorgeous, blue Aegean Sea. The Greece of your dreams comes to life on this island with the white buildings and streets. Most with 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 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 located in the very least populated portion of the island. Each suite is different. Each suite has Jacuzzis, flat-screen televisions, and king-size beds. Breakfast is served on your own private balcony.
Take a few.5 mile hike from Fira to Oia. Be sure to take water and wear comfortable shoes. The views with the ocean and also the volcano are spectacular.
Check the ruins of Ancient Thera. This ancient city includes remains from multiple periods such as the Hellenistic, Roman, and Byzantine. Once you get through to the ancient city, it is possible to look down to see the black sand beaches. Kamari Beach is among the most popular beaches on Santorini.
Enjoy a later date by the pool at Red Beach. The beach is termed for reddish volcanic sand.
