The village of Oia on the island of Santorini is undoubtedly the most visited Mediterranean village for two reasons. It is a typical Greek village, with its white houses and blue domes but also and above all for its sunsets.
To be honest, if you want to spend a weekend in Oia, it is better to be outside the village. We were in Perigolas, only 1 kilometer from the village. The village of Oia is, of course, charming, but I thought it looked more like a soulless village, no Greeks live there anymore. Then if you go there to see the sunset, you'll have to be patient and prepare yourself a few hours before to have a good place and avoid the crowd. Because it's like an attraction and that's what took all the magic out of it for me, so I decided to visit the village at sunrise because the streets are quieter and you can really enjoy the place without rushing. #awesomepic #unforgettableexperiences #couplestrip #scenicspotguide #travelinspiration #springholiday #instagramworthydestinations
Greece and especially Santorini is one of the most photogenic destinations on earth. Every corner is so pretty, food is delicious and nothing can beat European summer.
Our favorite picture perfect destination in the whole world, Oia is the place where you cannot take any bad pictures, and the food is simply the best in the world.
We loved spending time walking around the gorgeous island of Santorini thru the little narrow streets and market places for the best shopping in a lifetime
The town of Oia is the second largest town in Santorini. The blue and white church and traditional windmills are landmarks known worldwide. The blue and white buildings against the backdrop of the Aegean Sea create a gorgeous scene full of romance that attracts honeymooners from all across the globe. In addition to the iconic architecture, many visitors also come here to enjoy the breathtaking sunsets. In the evening, people gather to watch the sunset from a viewing point as the sun slowly sinks into the Aegean Sea. When only a single sliver of sunlight remains, the viewing point erupts into applause as yet another gorgeous sunset comes to an end.
