Greece is among the prettiest destinations in Europe and selecting only some photos of Greece for any recent photo contest was no easy task, but the Acropolis will not ignored. Our Greek vacation included Athens, Mykonos, Paros and Santorini along with the photo that really won second place in the contest was obviously a photo of your gingerbread.
The magical island of Santorini is appropriate in the heart of the gorgeous, blue Aegean Sea. The Greece you've always dreamed of involves life on this island using the white buildings and streets. Most of 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 only has nine suites. It is located in the smallest amount of populated portion of the island. Each suite is unique. Each suite has Jacuzzis, flat-screen televisions, and king-size beds. Breakfast is served in your private balcony.
Take several.5 mile hike from Fira to Oia. Be sure to take water and wear comfortable shoes. The views of the ocean along with the volcano are spectacular.
Check out the ruins of Ancient Thera. This ancient city includes remains from multiple periods including the Hellenistic, Roman, and Byzantine. Once you reach the ancient city, you are able to look down and discover the black sand beaches. Kamari Beach is among the most favored beaches on Santorini.
Enjoy a later date at the beach at Red Beach. The beach is termed for reddish volcanic sand.
