Santorini, also known as Thira, is one of the Cyclades islands in Greece, located in the Aegean Sea. It is 73 square kilometers (28 square miles) in size, and has been voted "One of the World's Most Beautiful Islands"! The volcanic eruption (Minoan eruption) that took place in 1470BC was one of the largest volcanic events on Earth in recorded history! With it's whitewashed villages perched along the red, yellow, and green covered cliffs, beautiful windmills, red & black sand beaches, stunning teal waters, countless blue domes, Santorini's beauty is surely undeniable! It is surely one of my favorite places in all of Europe!
Zoe Aegeas Traditional Houses I cannot speak highly enough about where I stayed in Santorini! Zoe Aegeas Traditional Houses is located in a perfect location in Oia, with an absurdly gorgeous and iconic view! I reserved the Honeymoon Studio solely based on the incredible view. It was extremely convenient to everywhere I wanted to roam by foot, the room was just the perfect size, the owner Zak was extremely helpful with anything I needed, and did I mention in fantastic view?! I was right beside one of the blue domes, and footsteps away from the best spot to watch the sunset, "The Castle"!
Exploring Santorini I traveled around the entire island, but Oia, Ammoudi Bay, The Castle, Red Beach, Fira, Perivolos, Akrotiri, and Firostefani were my favorite spots! The entire island of Santorini is absolutely beautiful. The colors are overwhelming, the landscapes are fabulous, and the people are so nice! It was one of the cleanest islands with the best charm, I've ever seen!
