    Santorini is so beautiful it almost doesn't seem real!
    Black Sand Beaches and Beautiful Sunsets are just the beginning.
    There are wineries and great food,a volcano and some of the most spectacular resorts in the world!

    The biggest city on the island, the best place to hang out during the night as there are lots of shops, bars and restaurant. This is where most of the young people on the island reconvene after a day at the beach.
    Look for a panoramic restaurant, it's definitely worth it.

    If you only have a limited time on the island, Fira is the place to stay. It has the most restaurants, shops and really great views. Plus the main bus station is in Fira, so if you want to visit any of the beaches or other towns, it's really easy. If you have time, I recommend walking the old goat trail from Fira to Oia, then take the bus back.

    This is the city from which all post cards have originated. Beautiful and far surpasses the photos. This is a place you must see with your own eyes and experience with all 5 senses.

    Fira is one of the villages on Santorini. It is gorgeous, especially at sunset. The sun paints the city in the most glorious pinkish gold color.
