Warmer days are here to stay with lil breezy winds in Santorini ( A greek island)! A crisp colour palette of creams, blue, white and a bit of print seem to be the perfect match. Thera (the main island that people are referring to when they say Santorini), Therasia (a much smaller and sparsely inhabited island), and Nea Kameni (the volcano in the middle). The water between the outer ringing island and the central volcano is the caldera.While the west coast of Santorini is sheer cliffs, the east coast rolls slowly out to the sea Instead there are amazing mosaics of colored roofs, an endless labyrinth of curving streets, and the most dramatic vistas across the caldera. This place was oozes with warmth and peace.
The place is so beautiful because of its traditional architecture that line the cliff. Low-lying cubical houses made of local stone and white washed or lime washed with various volcanic ashes used as colors was what made it so special – every house or structure looked alike! Pictures below are of the villages we visited Fira, Imerovigili, Oia, Emporio, Firostefai, Megalochori.
At Fira. Fira is the main town in Santorini so it’s a lot more touristy and commercialized. Rows and rows of shops and hoards of tourists. Fira is the capital and main city on Santorini. It is where most of the cruise ships dock, and also where the ferries arrive/depart. It has a host of accommodation options, and also some of the best shopping on the island. Especially if you’re looking for souvenirs, jewelry, or artwork, the narrow streets on the cliffs. It also heads the nightlife section .Fira is where you want to be. Firostefani is an old village just north of Fira which has merged with Fira, becoming one of its suburbs. The name Firostefani means ‘Crown of Fira’ .
The market streets of Fira.The town of Fira is a typical Cycladic village made of charming white houses with blue windows and doors, separated from each other by small paved streets.
