“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” –Mark Twain
There are so many things to say about Santorini but I’ll start here: It was truly the trip of a lifetime. The Aegean Sea was so blue, the Greek people were so friendly and exploring on our own was the key to us enjoying ourselves. We didn’t do too much research before the trip and it worked out perfectly. Sometimes we just sat on our terrace for hours and other times we explored the less crowded parts of the island. Santorini, thank you for allowing us to explore all you had to offer! Here are my 10 activities to do on Santorini!
1. Stay in Imerovigli
I’ll be posting a separate blog about Absolute Bliss, our hotel in Imerovigli. I will say here that town has some of THE BEST views of the Caldera, especially around sunset. Imerovigli is nestled between Fira and Oia, it’s much quieter with less people. We found some great places to eat (Tasos Tavern, Anogi, Illios Bakery) and I spent hours in the local Pharmacy purchasing beauty items that I cannot get here in the US. While other people rushed to Fira and Oia for the sunsets, we had a perfect view from our balcony at Absolute Bliss in Imerovigli. Nothing was better than watching the sun go down with a glass of Greek wine on our private space.
