Better than pictures, Oia, Santorini.

Oia is a small town in Santorini. If you have ever seen pictures of luxurious hotels in Santorini it’s probably in Oia.  It is so amazingly beautiful, that at times my friends and I just couldn’t believe we were there.

Oia has tons of boutique hotels, expensive shops and restaurants, and I have always thought this is the perfect honeymoon destination. But you don’t need to  have loads of money to enjoy this part of the island. Walking around is just as fun, there is a little square with a church, many coffee shops , and ruins of an old Byzantine castle where you can watch the beautiful sunset from.

If you are not staying in this part of the island, buses run to Fira until late at night for 3 euros. I think you can easily visit Oia in just a few hours, just make sure you stay for the sunset and your visit will be complete.

One of the most incredible moments for me was when I somehow made my way through a street and ended up a finding a view that I had always seen in pictures. That very same view that was the cover of one of my highschool notebooks,and now it was right there in front of me.
