What is special about Santorini Greece?
Santorini is one of my favorite places I’ve visited with my family. This is my 2nd time visiting Santorini because it’s simply AMAZING…and foods are delicious!
It’s a truly calming experience when you step the island of Santorini – the serene blue skies that will get you gasping at just about every corner of the island. The overviewing & stunning jewel blue ocean and the crystal white-colored fondant-like cake houses carved into cliffs are remarkable.
Whether you are from a cruise ship or visiting the beautiful port of Fira, a Donkey ride is one of the options to get to the top or riding a cable car!
You can pre-book your donkey and make sure you find availability.
You can check the Fira Port Donkey Ride prices here.
The first time we visit Santorini my daughter was just 9 years old and I immediately fell in love with this island and will definitely come back here again…
The small pebble streets of Santorini can get pretty busy especially during the peak season.
Santorini Greece is really one of the places that you must include on your bucket list.
Santorini is an island in the Cyclades. Its official name is Thira and Fira is the name of the main capital town.
Fira is one of Santorini’s busiest areas because more cruise ships are docked here like the Royal Caribbean Cruise Rhapsody of the seas that we took exploring Southern Europe.
Where are the blue domes of Santorini?
If you want the best & most popular photograph spot in Santorini, the very popular 3-blue domes that you see on postcards, magazines, and souvenirs, you will find it in Oia.
What is Oia famous for?
If you want to witness the spectacular sunset, Oia is the perfect place for your unforgettable moments watching the sun go down.
How to get the best photos of the blue domes of Santorini or the Anastasi Church.
Just beneath the Terpsi Oia restaurant is where the 3 blue domes are located.
Also, be aware that the church and the blue domes are off-limits and the rooftops surrounding them are strictly private.
So, do not trespass the barriers and don’t ignore the private signs for you not to get in trouble.
