Canaves Oia Hotel

White walls, blue doors, our hotel is really picture perfect. Our favorite part was having breakfast on the private balcony with the expansive view of the Mediterranean Sea!

Lunch at Filotera Suites

Tons of boutique hotels with gorgeous views in Oia ... we couldn’t help stopping at this one when walking around and also decided to get lunch there.

Oia Castle

Oia Castle is where you get the iconic shot of the famous wind mills and pastel houses (which are at their finest when bathed in the warm glow of sunset) lining the cliffside of Oia.

As sunset approaches, the castle could get very crowded so make sure you arrive early if you want to grab a good spot.

Oia's Sunset

A very romantic sunset ... love is in the air!

Armeni Restaurant

A great seafood restaurant tucked away in a enclave along the shoreline of Oia. The restaurant is only accessible by boat and make sure you make reservation in advance.

Day 3

Last breakfast on our room balcony ... farewell Santorini! We will be back!

Acropolis of Athens

We had half a day in Athens before catching our connecting flight the next morning. The most famous site in Athens is undoubtedly Acropolis - the cradle of Western civilization and the birthplace of Democracy.
