I was looking so much for Santorini, it was the only one of the three islands that I actually saw pictures before, and I knew it was going to be the best place of the entire trip! Well, Santorini is beautiful I cannot say differently but nothing more than the other two, just different… The landscape that you can admire from Firà, Oià, Firostefani, Imerovigli is stunning and breathtaking, the so called “Caldera”. Those cities are set at about 250 metres on the sea level, so you cannot even imagine what you can see from there until you are actually there! Breathtaking is the only word that came into my mind… many boutique hotels are located in the towns overlooking the caldera, with private balconies and pools – perfect place for honeymoons without any doubt.
So I realized that Santorini can be divide in two part, one really amazing on the west coast, looking the volcano and the one on the East coast, special, but not so much as the other one unfortunately. There long black sandy beaches (because of the volcanic soil) with clean waters, and very organized. We ate on a wonderful terrace the first night in Imerovigli at Kapari Restaurant, and was simply fabulous! On a balcony watching the sunset, eating good food, and enjoying the amazing moment – I can definitely say that the sunset from Imerovigli is one of the greatest wonders in the world! The second day we decided to wake up at sunrise and have a walk through the towns, getting also to Skaros rock, and although the hard and tiring walking when we arrived there it was amazing to be just in the middle of the sea… Then at night we decided to do something different and using tripadvisor tips (we love that site!) we went to the open cinema in Kamari a really cool place and a cool idea – an open cinema where you can also have really good drinks while watching new movies.
There were fine boutiques also in Santorini, they usually sells jewelry made from volcano stones like Athens Protasis, but to be absolutely honest I really preferred the ones in Mykonos and Paros. Santorini is full of visitors every day and walking around the towns is not so relaxing as I thought before arriving since there are many hills. Of course I cannot write of all the things we saw during this amazing trip, I can just suggest this trip to everyone and feel free to contact me if you wish to know more 😉 – you can see other pictures on my instagram.
C u soon 😉
