... sand, and the rock, and how this is all very old volcanic ash (he really is suited as a "dirt guy" for his job!), what I will say is I really wanted to see this black sand, so I tore off my sandals and ran into the beach, the BLACK SAND beach in +30C weather....yeah you get the picture. And as I hopped off that beach as fast as I could, I watched all the other tourists do the exact same thing. And let me tell you it was funny to watch, just not funny to actually experience ...
... Fat Greek Wedding."
We were back in Venice Saturday morning. What a week!! We sailed past St. Mark's Square, the Doge's Palace and St. this and St. that in Venice on the afternoon of one Saturday and again on the morning of the next, with a week of Greek culture and history sandwiched in between. We are truly blessed!!!
Thank you for all your messages and comments. We look forward to seeing you next month upon our ...
... 1625 BC there was a volcanic eruption so that the centre of the island blew its top and sunk into the Aegean. What is left is the circular rim of the volcano on which houses and towns are perched on the edge. The island is now shaped like a sickle. There is a black island in the middle which I imagine is the volcanic lava and there are other islands extending the rim around the central lava island. All of this makes for some ...
... a huge earthquake caused enormous destruction on the island (circumstances where were somewhat similar to those on Keffalonia, another of the Greek islands).
Ships arriving at Santorini use either the “old port” of Skala or the “new port” of Athinios. Those arriving at Skala have a choice of climbing the 566 steps to the town, riding a Mule or taking a two minute ...
... It was such an awsome setting, oh and to make it that little more perfect... the bar played U2 songs as the sun disapeared over the horizon!
After the sun had set it was time to head back to our ship, but we still needed to make our decent down the 1000mt cliff face. There was the convential way of catching a cable car, but this seemed a little tame, so we decided on the other option... on the back of a donkey. Ok now i was a little nervous about this before ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Artemis Villas Imerovigli
After reading all the other reviews and looking at their website I thought that Artemis Villas would be something special.
Exceeded all expectations
Have just returned from a week staying at Artemis Villas on Santorini - extended our original 3 night booking as we couldn't drag ourselves away. We stayed in "The Apartment" which was exquisitely decorated by one of the owners, Angela, from family artefacts going back generations. This felt like a true Greek island experience, with gorgeous cave-style accommodation, unbelievable views over the caldera, a private balcony on which to watch the magnificent sunsets and such fantastic hosts - Angela and Chris. It's about a 25 minute walk north of Fira, so perfect if you want to escape the crowds at the end of the day!
Miss Artemis, miss Santorini
We spent 3 nights in Artemis and enjoied a lot. The room was basic but clean, not very big but enough for two persons and it had all we needed, the worst part was the warddrove in the bathroom. Our balcony was great and althougt the views are incredible from many hotels was bigger tahn others.
The service very warm and the pool very little but the solarium is very good.
The worst part of our trip was the wind, sometimes was very uncomfortable.
Few week ago me and my husband (wow) were married in Artemis Villas......
The wedding took place 20:00 (sunset time) A hair stylist came in my room to fix my hair and a make up artist to do my make up.....
Everything was just lovely a real dream that I didn't want to wake up from the location (next to the pool just inform of this magical views ) was decorated with flowers (all white decoration) after the ceremony the hostess Angela have arrange for as a lovely present love heart red balloons and fireworks...

We had no problem with our reservation everithing was well organised we definitely will return....
Simply the best, I loved it!
I stayed at Artemis Villas in Imerovigli about one month ago in July 2004.
I booked through the net. The manager was really kind with me in her response to my requests, no matter how many requests I made.
Upon the arrival, I met the manager who was really kind. She took me to my room which was really spacious and not so expensive. The view was fanstastic and I cant describe with words how quiet and nice my stay was.
Breakfast was lovely (unfortunately not in the price), my wife and I are returning for sure!
Its also close to Fira which is handy if you want to booze up all night and stroll along the Caldera!!
