Oia's Main Street, Santorini

(4.4/5 based on 300+ 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.

  • Really beautiful, even has something majestic villa formed by places that leave you with the charm of the different. Just 12 km from Fira, houses merge with volcanic soil, white walls, with jars of clay filled with flowers by his descendants stairs. Its main street is pedestrianised and connects from the cliff with many branches. A village may be more quiet than Fira, while its streets are also filled with beautiful boutiques, jewelers and charming Hotel Villas. Environment main street brings together galleries, Greek handicrafts and an endless souvenir shops that merge with the friendly sailor of the quiet village of heard, from atop the cliff overlooking magnificent and your picturesque way to Ammoudi port. A place that invites you to relax!
