I finally started to go through some of the photos we took during our honeymoon! I will be sharing more in a few more posts, but first up, is the beautiful town of Oia on the islands of Santorini. During the second week of our honeymoon, we explored the islands of Greece and spent one day touring this breathtaking town. There are four main towns along the caldera in Santorini – Fira, Firostefani, Imerovigli, and Oia. These are located on the western edge of the island and are situated on the caldera cliff, which offers fantastic views of the volcano.
We stayed in Fira, but on one day, we took a short bus ride to Oia (public bus only costs a few Euros each). Oia is the home of the infamous blue domes you see in postcards and photos (fun fact: if you were a fan of the “Sisterhood of Travelling Pants”, this is where a part of the movie was filmed!),=. It is the most romantic town in the Santorini Island and located at the most northern tip of the island. If you’re looking for perfect sunsets and serenity away from nightlife and crowds, I’d recommend staying here for true relaxation. Keep in mind, much of the Greek Islands is away from the hustles and bustles of city life, so I guarantee you will certainly get ample of R&R regardless of which town you decide to plan your trip!
Here are some photos from our day trip to Oia, but photos really don’t do this place justice. You really have to visit to fully experience the dreamy landscapes, food and culture.
