First day: Oia & the Sunset
The first thing to do in Santorini is to visit the island’s most picturesque villages in the northern part of the caldera. More specifically, Oia, Imerovigli, and Fira should definitely be a part of your schedule.
Imerovigli is known as the island’s most famous viewpoint. It is the best place to catch a great view of the Aegean Sea, the caldera, and the volcano. Fira, the capital town of Santorini, is the most vivid place on the island and also offers some of the most breathtaking sea views since the settlement has been constructed on a cliffside.
Last but not least, remember to save Oia for the end of the day, as this is the best place to watch the world’s most romantic and most photographed sunset. Walking around these villages, you will spot some great shops as well as restaurants, including Atlantis Book Store in Oia and Selene Restaurant in Fira.
