Jostle with tourists for every inch in July Aug 2

The months July and August are the high season in these ISlands in the Cyclades.
And for Santorini it really is.
Your first views inland would probably be the hardly moving line of automobiles up from the ferry port to the town of Fira, which is high up the Caldera. I

This is about a 600 metre rise and the whole snakely line of automobiles greeted us first as we boarded the local KTEL buses to the centre of town. The ride is about 20 mins for a distance of about 10kms and then you reach the jostling and bustling Bus terminus at the centre of FIra.

Oia: Where the sun sets into the sea

Below is a scene from the bustling crowd waiting for the sun to set into the Sea.
Oia is the another town in this Island other than Fira.

The busy Port of Santorini
