Skaro rock sticks up and out from the cliffs at just about the highest point of Imerovigli. It once housed a Venetian fortress though scant little remains of this these days. The walk over to the rock involves yet another climb down and up steep steps (it seems to be a feature all over Santorini) and a walk across a path that was described in one of our books as "not for the faint hearted". really, it's a doddle and shouldn't scare anyone. At the far side of the rock (and down yet more steps) is a small church that is set right on the edge of the rock. The views from it are spectacular and the church itself is picturesque and charming. Worth the hike.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
