Inspirock Rating:
4.4/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web
Traversing the most picturesque Santorini village, Oia's Main Street crosses along the top of a cliff, branching off through narrow passageways like a fish's backbone. Although Oia is quieter than tourist-frenzied Fira, this main pedestrian strip still boasts trendy boutiques and expensive jewelry shops, as well as a central square with sweeping scenic views. See the blue domes of characteristic 19th-century churches, traditional houses, and cobbled paths. Built on the steep slope of the caldera, many of its dwellings nestle in niches cut into volcanic rock. Instead of walking, you can opt for a horseback ride through the area.

Paved with marble slabs, this street is the main thoroughfare of the village, it is a must.
