Day 1 - 26 Aug 2021
Content: Our dream trip started when we arrived at the airport in the afternoon. A couple of tips/notes I can give you: - We had a connection flight to be cheaper - If you are not fully vaccinated, in the airport you will have to do a second Covid test (for free) - We asked to our hotel to arrange us a shuttle because it was cheaper
Content: Later, we decided to go to a hotel’s restaurante to try some traditional Greek food! We tried the Souvlaki and the Baklava which were amazing. This hotel was really beautiful, with the view to the pool and all the cave houses.
Content: We finished the day in our hotel, which was managed by a family super friendly and available to help. The house was so cute, with the sea view when you open the door, the balcony to relax and of course, the pool nearby with a sea view as well. The hotel also included parking lot, which is super helpful, since renting a motor quad or a car is important to get to know better the island.
Day 2 - 27 Aug 2021
Content: We started our day really early in the morning to get ready for our Flying Dress photo shoot. This photo shoot took place in the center of Imerovigli and was an absolute delight. We had a women team to help, making the dresses fly and the photos were amazing! This was such a great experience.
Content: We were starving after being all morning photo shooting, so we went to have lunch nearby the amazing view of the white houses. We tried the gyros and at this point we were already in love with Greek food!
Content: With our level of energy up again, we decided to go walk around and find some cute spots for pictures. The best spots were near the church of the Resurrection, with the pink flowers, the bells and the blue dome ✨
Content: Later in the afternoon, we decided to see the sunset in a spot a little more far, to avoid the crowds, and was a good decision. We got an amazing view to Imerovigli. It was really one of the best sunsets!
Day 3 - 28 Aug 2021
Content: We started our day with a late breakfast in our balcony with sea view. The owners of the hotel brought us the breakfast to the balcony and everything was really good!
Content: We decided to go on a hiking after lunch! The Skaros rock is at a 20 minute walking distance from the Imerovigli center and there are a lot of stairs to reach the top. We decided not to go to the rock’s summit because we didn’t feel it was safe, but instead we decided to go a bit further down and found a beautiful gem. It was such a cute church! A couple of people were there, so I would advise you to go earlier in the morning to have the place only for yourself.
Content: To finish our stay in Imerovigli, we could not miss the sunset, and we got some company from a cute cat. Afterwards, we had traditional Greek salad and a Kebab in a small and full restaurant, the “Let’s eat”. The food was good and super cheap!
Day 4 - 29 Aug 2021
Content: In our 4th day we changed hotels, and we were lucky that our amazing room was ready earlier! The hotel was the best ever, with the amazing view, since we were near the castle where normally people watch the sunset. If I come back to Santorini, I will for sure try to stay here again, to enjoy the jacuzzi with the view, the wine offered and because of Dimitri (the owner) and his wife which are so so nice and friendly!
Content: We stayed all day in our room to really enjoy the view and the jacuzzi. This was the best place to watch the sunset, it’s hard to find a better sit for the “sunset lights show”.
Content: The restaurant was suggest by the hotel owner and did not disappoint. We got really good bruschetta and seafood! Additionally, the hotel had an amazing view and that’s how we found the famous pink bell.
Content: We went back to the hotel to enjoy the night which was so pleasant. We spent some hours in the jacuzzi watching the stars and the beautiful view.
Day 5 - 30 Aug 2021
Content: We woke up at 6am to see the sun rise. The colors were so nice and everything was so quiet. Then we got ready to go explore Oia.
Content: We started wondering around and found out the most cute and beautiful corner. It did not disappoint to see the white hotels, the blue domes, the flowers and church bells with the Aegean Sea as the background.
Content: We went to the famous view point called “Blue Dome” which has the pink bells. There was a line to take this pictures, so if you are able to go earlier, it will be better.
Content: We continue to see the city in the afternoon and finished in the jacuzzi to see the sunset again 🤩 During the day we talked with the owner of this hotel, and his wife offered us a stay in her hotel, which was a resort near the airport. So we changed hotel again in our last day!
Day 6 - 31 Aug 2021
Content: We arrived at the new hotel which had a really good vibe. This resort had a big pool with some sun beds inside the pool and music. We had some cocktails and food by the pool and took the sun.
Day 6 - 31 Aug 2021
Content: The resort had a pathway to the famous black sand beach. On the way there was a cute swing with some flowers and the sea view. We stayed in the private beach during the afternoon.
Day 6 - 31 Aug 2021
Content: We went to sleep early and the next day it was time to go home. Our friends (Dimitri and Andy) took us to the airport, they were really nice to help us. This was actually one of the best vacations ever and I think everybody should go at least once! Here are some clips of some of my favorite moments, I hope you enjoy it✨
