Last summer, my boyfriend and I took a trip to this amazing beauty of an island, Santorini. This was the last leg of our trip around Greece and wanted to save the best for last. Santorini is truly a treasure and I’m so appreciative of our memorable visit. We spent 6 full days in this very small island and we honestly never once got bored!
After researching to the depths about Greek islands, many previous visitors were bored of Santorini and had advised to stay for about 2-3 days. I’ve definitely gotten to a point in my life where I’d rather take my time to relax and enjoy what the area has to offer and taking in a country’s rich culture, beauty, and art. I’ve experienced my fair share of backpacking, hostel hopping, and cramming in as many countries as I can in one trip! I guess I’m just getting a little older 😉
One major tip I would suggest, is to spend the extra dollars for a caldera view!!! You will not regret it.
This picture was taken during a 7 mile hike from Fira to Oia. It took us about 2-3 hours since we stopped a lot for breaks and pictures. There are a few gorgeous hotels and churches to see as well as taking in the amazing caldera view that you just CANNOT get enough of.
This little kitty stayed with us on our patio the entire stay. She was our little pet for the trip! You just can’t have a trip with us without furry friends.
