Santorini sunsets

We end our Cyclades tour on the stunning island Santorini. Everything people say about this island is true… Red coasts, black beaches, one of the best sunsets you’ve ever seen – including a view on the Caldera crater… The combination of exploring cities in the North and finding deserted beaches in the South is magnificent. Add to that the very friendly people and a bottle of Santorini’s sweet dessert wine and you’ll find yourself the recipe for an amazing 5 day island tour…

At night we would suggest to leave your car at the hotel, because Santorini is known for its excellent wines! Instead, take a taxi uphill to the Santo Winery; best known for its wine tasting-with-a-view experiences. Be aware; the snacks that come with the wine variety will not be sufficient to help you stay sober. Anyhow, be glad it won’t… in that way you will appreciate the music of the traditional Greek band even more during wine number 7,8 and…

The best way to explore this island, is by car. We took our shiny white Fiat500 all over this half moon shaped island and explored its curve from North to South. The early morning in Oia is just too good to be true… avoiding the crowds and having the tiny alleys and stairs all to ourselves.
