The beautiful village of Oia

Oia is second to Fira as the best know village on Santorini. It is known for its beautiful sunsets and spectacular cliffs. Its possible to take a three hour hike from Fira to Oia. You will walk the path over the cliffs and see many beautiful views. Its a challenge but one that can be enjoyed. You can also take a bus from Fira and arrive within 15 minutes. I was not exactly wanting to be challenged by this point in my Greek vacation. I had spent 5 days walking the streets of Athens and one day in Fira climbing the cliffs and walking all day. So I took the bus. And I have no regrets!

    Thanks for sharing your terrific photos and advice. Just when in Fira do you get that bus to Oia? Also, can you get a bus from the Sunset taverna back up and to Fira?

    These are truly splendid photos, Larry. I especially like the bell tower on the orthodox church. Sorry I missed what appears to have been a wonderful VT meet.
