When I visited Santorini last year it was one of my most memorable trips in life. Here are some reasons why Santorini should be on top of your bucket list in 2015.
The white and blue beauty of its villages:
Santorini Island consists of different small villages. Some of them are Fira, Oia and Perissa.
Fira (Thira) is the central village of Santorini where all ferries doc. If you are kind of party person and like to enjoy nightlife then fira has some really good pubs and restaurants. Fira offers beautiful views of the caldera formed by volcanic activities. Many tourists like to stay here because of the proximity to the central bus station from which connections to other villages operate.
Oia is the most beautiful village on Santorini. If you are on a romantic holiday or on a couples trip then Oia is perfect destination for you. Oia has stunning white cave houses with caldera view. These cave houses are called the cave villas of Santorini.
Being part of sunny side of world i.e. Greece, Santorini has been blessed with sunshine. If you want to get some sun then it is definitely calling you!
The Greek Food:
Greek cuisine is a very tempting affair. If you are a foodie and crave for good food then Feta cheese, Kebabs and Greek wine is here for you! If you are more of sweet tooth then Baklava (famous phyllo pastry dessert from Greece) awaits you.
The hiking routes:
There are two hiking routes on Santorini from Perissa to Kamari and along the caldera edge from Imerovigli to Oia. So if you are adventure lover and more of a walking person then Santorini can be a good option for you.
