Your first time in Greece, it’s important to truly take it all in from living like Cesar in the ancient ruins or soaking in the sun on the beautiful beaches.
Known for the iconic houses on the edges of cliffs that plunge deep into the Aegean Sea, Santorini has so much to offer. The island chain was formed from ancient volcanic eruptions, which caused the island's center to sink, leaving the croissant-shaped island.
As the southernmost island in the Cyclades, Santorini can keep you busy for weeks if you let it. The island's capital is Fira. It is known for its markets, shops, bars, in restaurants. Take a walk down the narrow streets to some of the most beautiful views.
Just a short trek from Fira is Imerovigli, an adorable residential town that is the highest town on Santorini. This small town gives you a taste of day-to-day life in Greece. Next, I recommend taking the hike across a narrow pass to Skaros Castelli. This castle is believed to be the oldest remains on the island.
Arguably one of the most beautiful cities on Santorini is Oia. The streets are lined with galleries, arts, and other handmade goods. There are beautiful sunsets and breathtaking views of the seas from the road. Spend the day walking around and taking in the sites, smells, and tastes of this cliffside villa.
