Oia is the most photographed location in Santorini and a place where many artists have found their inspiration in Oia’s beauty, the traditional architecture, and the amazing sunset.
Enjoy the stunning views of the caldera, where many dwellings are built into niches of the volcanic rock. You will also have a panoramic view of the rest of Santorini and the Aegean Sea.
On the way, we’ll make a short stop in Firostefani to see the famous Blue Dome Church, the subject of so many Santorini’s postcards.
Then, you will make your way to the peak of Prophet Elias, the highest mountain that stands some 2,000 feet (600 meters) above the sea. Be amazed by the island vistas around you (360 degrees), and then follow your guide inside the ornate Greek Christian monastery perched at the mountain’s summit.
This is another beautiful village on the island that is worth seeing. Your guide will take you through the narrow streets, so you can see how the locals live.
