Spine-tingling and seductive, Santorini righteously has one of the world’s most breathtaking views. Cobalt blue-domed churches, white marble streets leading to nowhere and everywhere, beautiful boutiques selling ceramics and handmade jewelry. Lazy morning wanders intertwined with revitalizing beach time as the sea breeze soothes you to sleep, late lunch fluidly turns into early drinks, and some more strolls around the cliff tops. A blessed soil with perfect climate fuels gastronomy and viticulture with the freshest ingredients, sophisticated flavors, and dishes to be paired with the finest local wine varieties. From the capital Fira to the little villages of Firostefani, Imerovigli, Oia, Megalochori, and Pyrgos – one sincerely feels gratitude for the here and now and an island that truly combines the best of every world. Don’t let the hype of the tripod-carrying and shutter-speed-checking crowds or the honeymoon-central vibe ever discourage you from allotting some precious time out of the year to visit Santorini. The fortune of finding one’s way here is worth every moment.
