Two years ago I visited Santoriny. I travelled by ship From Heraklion and after four hours we arrived at Sanoriny's port, "Athinios". I rented a car and drove to my hotel in "Akrotiri". A small village placed in the South of the island, with a great view to "Caldera" and "Oia". I bought a map and I started discovering the island.
My first station was the crowded "Caldera". The capital of Santoriny which is built on a huge volcano rock. I enjoyed my walk to the thousands lanes. I was stopping in every shop, taking a look arround and I tasted the local wines the producers make. Of course my photo camera was on fire. The beauty of the sites can't easily be explained.
After "Caldera" I visited the village of "Oia". The village is placed on the northern tip of the island and it is a popular destination for the visitors because of the sunset viewing site. The theme is that there is an uninterrupted view of the sun as it finally sinks below the horizon. Altough the prices are high, I will never regret I had my afternoon coffee there.
Except of Caldera and Oia, I also visited "Kamari" and "perissa. These villages are on the eastern island. Altough there weren't great sites to see, I enjoyed the sun and I relaxed for a long time while I was drinking cocktails to the huge beaches of that places.The last place I visited was a beach named "Vlihada". Actually I stayed speechless. After a five minutes walk trough rocks I saw a wild beauty of red rocks that surround the small beach.
Altough I stayed only three days in Santoriny I enjoyed every minute of my time there and i recommend this island not only to young people like me, but also, to older people because there are a huge variety of activities for all ages there.
