Greece is one of 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 be ignored. Our Greek vacation included Athens, Mykonos, Paros and Santorini and also the photo that basically won second invest the contest would have been a photo of a gingerbread.
The magical island of Santorini is correct in the heart of the gorgeous, blue Aegean Sea. The Greece you have always wanted comes to life on this island while using white buildings and streets. Most of the hotels on this island are small but luxurious. For a traditional Greek experience, consider staying in 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 within the least populated section of the island. Each suite is exclusive. Each suite has Jacuzzis, flat-screen televisions, and king-size beds. Breakfast is served on the private balcony.
Take the 4.5 mile hike from Fira to Oia. Be sure to take water and wear comfortable shoes. The views of the ocean and also the volcano are spectacular.
Check the ruins of Ancient Thera. This ancient city includes remains from multiple periods like the Hellenistic, Roman, and Byzantine. Once you get to the ancient city, it is possible to look down and find out the black sand beaches. Kamari Beach is one of the most favored beaches on Santorini.
Enjoy another day at the beach at Red Beach. The beach is called for reddish volcanic sand.
