Greece is probably the prettiest destinations in Europe and selecting only some 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 the photo that truly won second devote the contest would have been a photo of your gingerbread.
The magical island of Santorini is proper in the middle of the gorgeous, blue Aegean Sea. The Greece of your dreams relates to life on this island with the 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 only a few rooms or suites available.
If you are interested in privacy, consider Astarte Suites. This family run hotel just has nine suites. It is located in the very least populated part of the island. Each suite is different. Each suite has Jacuzzis, flat-screen televisions, and king-size beds. Breakfast is served on your private balcony.
Take a few.5 mile hike from Fira to Oia. Be sure to take water and wear comfortable shoes. The views of the ocean and the volcano are spectacular.
Check out your ruins of Ancient Thera. This ancient city includes remains from multiple periods including the Hellenistic, Roman, and Byzantine. Once you arrive at the ancient city, you can look down and find out the black sand beaches. Kamari Beach is probably the most popular beaches on Santorini.
Enjoy another day by the pool at Red Beach. The beach is known as for reddish volcanic sand.
