Santorini is a magical Greek Island enveloped in mystery and charm.

The island itself it’s a volcanic crater (caldera) with an half moon shape.

We had the pleasure of travelling to Santorini in June 2016 to celebrate our 2nd wedding anniversary

KAMARI

After spending five unforgettable days here we amassed a significant treasure trove of pictures and memories.

We stayed in Kamari, in the southeastern coast of Santorini, famous for its black pebble beach.

The Kamari beach seafront promenade features a plethora of dining shopping options.

You can walk up and down this avenue or find your perfect chill spot under a thatched umbrella.

FIROSTEFANI

Firostefani is an old village just north of Fira (Santoirni’s capital) which has merged with Fira, becoming one of its suburbs. Predominant characteristics are traditionals houses, narrow path and views to the volcano.

IMEROVIGLI

In my opinion the most dreamy village is Imerovigli. I fell in love with it.

After a walk through the village, we had dinner at the Astra Suites Hotel and Restaurant.

I mean, can we talk about that view?

I was completely hypnotized.

From our table we saw a breathtaking sunset and the Oia’s citylights.

OIA

Oia is the most famous town of Santorini.

It’s known throughout the world for its fantastic sunset infact, at sunset the town feels like a magnet fro every traveller on the island.

Unfortunately, we can not share our Oia’s shots because Jacopo’s nanny stolen some things in our home, including our Nikon with inside the SD. 

Stunning sunset
