Hiking Trail Fira - Oia, Santorini
(4.8/5 based on 2,000+ reviews on the web)
To see the best of what Santorini has to offer relatively quickly, tackle Hiking Trail Fira - Oia. Hundreds of people hike the 9 km (5.5 mi) long trail every day, stopping along the way to discover the island's picturesque beaches, small villages, and ancient churches. The scenic trail covers a variety of terrains, including some rocky and steep pathways for which you should bring a pair of comfortable hiking shoes. The best time to start the hike is just after sunrise or late in the afternoon, during the coolest parts of the day. Wear a wide-brimmed hat, and bring lots of drinking water and a light snack.

  • Stunning! What a beautiful island! What beautiful village of oia. Got no word to define the beauty of this island. The streets the views people... It's wonderful! We regret not having spent at least a week there so the beauty of this island is beautiful! A special dedication to the village of oia, its Acropolis, its beauty, its painted blue or his sea blue. Beautiful jewelry in the shops in the narrow streets of this haven of peace. Remember down the mountain by cable car! Stunning views! "Cable car" you must follow.

  • Take a tour on the ferry from Crete. Excursion even 5 years ago cost about 300 euros, but it was worth it and still be visited with pleasure. Stunning cabins all in the same style, it's so magnificent. Walking through the narrow streets, wine tasting, remember there purchase rose wine is very cheap and very tasty, which is peculiar to Greece. Many souvenirs, handcrafted leather bags, jewelry from stones. We are lucky enough to see a wedding ceremony there, so beautiful. Church bells. As if walking in heaven, blue and white tones give a feeling of weightlessness and lightness. A beach with volcanic black sand is a miracle. And when with altitude steep ascent by serpentine on the bus see sunken volcanoes under the sea, breathtaking.
