I love Greece: Santorini

Somebody told me that Greek islands all look the same and not to waste my time visiting them all. This person was very very wrong. I wish I could have visited every single Greek island, even the inhabited ones. They are all different and they are all beautiful.

First stop: Santorini, Cyclades

Oia

Here’s a view of the caldera from the iconic village of Oia, best known for the beautiful sunsets and the white and blue houses. (and yes,  The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants was filmed here, I also found Lena’s house)

The beaches are beautiful and unique: like the Red Beach which can be reached by boat or by foot through a narrow path.

Or, in case you’re looking for total relax, Kamari Beach with its black sand and the cheap sun beds.

Santorini also offers a site of archeological interest. Akrotiri‘s excavation site is a Bronze Age village which was buried by a volcano eruption and for hence is very well preserved.

We only stayed for 3 days but I fell in love with the place. We slept at the lovely Zorzis Hotel in Perissa and had the best seafood at To Psaraki while watching the fishermen in the harbor below.
