My first time in Santorini, it was the end of the sumer season, the temperate was perfect and there were not so many tourists around, just the way I like it. I was there to shoot a wedding and I couldn’t miss the chance to explore the island.
Oia is for sure the prettiest city, and the most famous in Santorini, every corner was so picturesque, cave houses built on cliffs, white little churches, breathtaking sunsets, delicious greek food, I know now why people fly from everywhere to visit the island.
But as a tourist if I can pick up one experience, I would choose the 11km hike from Oia to Fira, it took me like three hours because I was stopping every 5 m for taking pictures, I’m in love with nature and to me the hike felt like walking on the moon, the view of the caldera was impressive, basically you can see the entire Santorini, I really recommend to do the hike when there.
Food is always the best part of a trip for me, the greek cuisine is very close to the italian one, based on fresh ingredients, food in Santorini didn’t disappoint at all, delicious sea food tasted by the sea, huge bowls of greek yogurt, feta cooked in every possible way, greek coffee which is ice coffee with cold milk froth (yum), that’s what you need after a day walking and walking everywhere.
here few places I liked:
Sunset Ammoudi, actually one of my bride recommended and I really enjoyed it, you walk down down down until you reach the seaside, there are few lovely restaurants there.
Passaggio, for me the best of the best (and biggest) greek yogurt and fruit bowl.
Meze Meze for authentic delicious greek food, and very nice staff, which for me is always very important.
I PHONE PICS
The ice coffee I mentioned before, the seafood place isn’t it adorable? and the bowl at Passaggio doesn’t look delicious?
The owner of the please I was staying at, such a nice and kind man, I love meeting locals when traveling.
bye bye Santorini, you’ll always have a special place in my heart
