Travel Blogs from Oia
An early start to drive to Heraklion & drop off car, then relaxed on the high-speed ferry to Santorini. Two nights at the perfectly-situated Fanari Villas in Oia.

Our favorite thing to do was to find a cliff side bar and have a cocktail while watching the sunset. We also toured the island a couple of times and even took in a wine museum. Although Andrea had the best time of the whole trip when ...
