Marina and her staff made our short stay in Santorini excellent. Her great reccommendations filled our stay with great memories. We had a planned itinerary which Marina helped to expand upon.
Costa Marina Villas is a well kept, beautiful hotel. While not affording a sunset view, you can spend the money saved on a restaurant with a view. The Villas are situated for a beautiful sunrise as well. The rooms are well kept and very clean, with excellent beds.

... A quick drive with our very frustrated driver and we were close to the hotel. Since we were staying on the edge of the crater everything was walking only. After a quick lunch we headed out on for a short hike from Fira to Oia. After some whining from the kids we headed out. Of course it turned out to be slightly longer than I though with few hills to climb. After 4 hours and 10 km we made it to Oia for dinner! Evan and Alissa declared they were not hiking anymore in ...
... That is how small the world is.
Alex could hardly wait to get back to the top because I had mentioned that we might rent ATVs for the afternoon to explore the island. Once I mentioned that, he wasn’t going to be talked out of it. Jeff tried to convince him a car would be better and warmer, etc. Alex said we could ride in a car and follow him on his 4 wheeler. J
But we rented the two four wheelers and had them for a full 24 hours. I ...
... part of town where I caught up on some writing and watched another glorious sunset with a few of the people from my hostel with whom I later had a cheap dinner of my greek favourite - Gyros. A gyros is a round thickish pide bread spread with tzatziki (ok I don't know how to spell that!) then loaded up with kebab meat, lettuce, tomato and hot chips (obviously no lettuce and tomato for me). They're amazing. I don't know why we don't have them in Australia - clearly every ...
... domed churches everywhere. The town centre was still pretty small. So it didn't take long and then back on the bus. The last stop of the day was Santos Winery which is high on the edge of the caldera south of Thira where tasted three differing wines and chatted with others on the tour. When we arrived back in Thira, the girls wanted to meet us for dinner so we found them at a restaurant on the edge of the caldera to watch the sunset. Click, click, ...
Onwards to Therasia, where we would moor our boat and have a nice bbq dinner. They were keen to the ideas of some who planned on putting more than one piece of chicken on their plate (that would be me) and had one of their workers dish out the food. It was good and the servings weren't too bad.
After that, we sailed along the caldera to see the old church a fisherman built as a thank you to the man ...
