    Oia - Whiter and Bluer than you imagine

    September 27, 2017 in Greece ⋅ ☀️ 24 °C

    We took the sea ferry to Oia and we were once again afford spectacular views of the high cliffs of the island. Upon arrival we tackled the 300 stairs to reach the town centre. While less stairs than in Fira, they were at least twice as steep. Legs burning we made it to the top, and will probably now have buns of steel after climbing 1000 stairs in 2 days.

    This town, like Fira is built into the cliff side and is roughly about 100m above see level. The town itself filled with winding streets,secret walkways, cave like houses and beautiful churches with white washed walls and blue domes.

    We explored these hidden paths ways, drooled over how amazing these churches were and then found a bar, Flora Cafe with a view of not only the volcano but also the nearby blue domed churches. We enjoyed some delicious Herb Mules. Mesmerised we sat and watched the sunset over the spires of the church in the town square. Simply amazing.
