STREETS AND VILLAGES
Travel is vision. So just explore the place and to go ahead with the thought we did a photography tour which was so helpful Olaf our photographer guide took us to untapped villages where we could Talk to locals.And wander and take beautiful photographs. Such planning takes you to the places which may just not be listed anywhere,or even if it is,you’d rather enjoy your own time. Santorini doesn’t always have to mean Volcanic tour or Oia .It can also mean your own search for exploration elsewhere.
Emporio Cultural Village is a small unspoilt village on a hill with a maze of tiny streets in Santorini.So small,that that it takes a while to grasp the peacefulness around. Even a pin drop would be felt a little away from the main road. The main entrance has the church and has local coffee and eatery shop with people mostly from the village who come or tourists would have known.
Have talked about a lot in my earlier post which is entirely dedicated to Oia. Here are few of the more pictures from the streets of Oia. We walked the town of Oia (pronounced as “ee-aa) both the days and really enjoyed it. It is also known as ‘Apano Meria’ or ‘Anomeria’ and the inhabitants are called ‘Apanomerites’ Little quaint shops of local handicrafts, restaurants, bakeries and churches lined the streets of Oia .Oia in the far north is very beautiful, and known for its artists’ colony. With its blue domed churches and white buildings set along the cliffs. Oia is little less commercialized version of Fira and the shops there are more artsy. The landscape at Oia is way prettier too. Oia town is what you see on most postcards depict Santorini. So we were lucky we decided to stay in Oia!
