Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Perissa Black Sand Beach, Perissa 847 03 Greece

Black beach is a beautiful beach situated 15 km southeast of Fira extending for 7 km on the southeastern side of Santorini.

Stop At: Skaros Rock, Imerovigli Greece

Next stop, Immerovigli that it is a picturesque village. It is situated at the north

of Santorini, only 2 km away from the capital of Fira. It is a continuation of Fira

and one of the most beautiful balconies of the island. The name of Imerovigli

comes from the word vigla which means view spot.

The position of the village provides a clear view of the caldera, and during the old times it allowed villagers to see the pirate ships approaching. Today, Immerovigli is one of the recognized traditional settlements.

Hotels and traditional houses are plentiful in Imerovigli. There are also many taverns and cafes with stunning views to the caldera. In front of Immerovigli lies an enormous rock called Scaros.On top of it is a castle that was built during the 13th century but it was bandoned in the early 1800s.

The castle housed all the administrative offices of the island. This part of the island collapsed after an earthquake, and only the huge hill of Scaros is left today.

Immerovigli has numerous chapels and churches built on the rocks overlooking the blue sea. The village is known as the ultimate romantic destination.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Three Bells of Fira, Fira 847 00 Greece

Fira is the capital of Santorini. On the caldera side you get one of the best views of the island and the activity level is enough to keep you entertained for hours. There are cafes, bars, restaurants, the most of them with view of caldera and some with several levels of patios and balconies to make the most of the space they have and the fact that when there are several cruise ships sitting below the town is packed with tourists.

If you enjoy shopping or eating or drinking or hanging out and watching the view then, Fira is worth visiting for a few hours in the day or evening.

The port of Fira below is where the cruise ships anchor and the tenders come and get the passangers and take them to the small port where they have three choices. The first choice, and maybe the most sensible one is to take the cable-car.

The second choice is to go up by donkey, which is what a lot of people end up having to do because they promised their kids that they would do this to get them excited about coming to Santorini.

The third choice is to walk which is done only by people who are in terrific shape and like a challenge or have something to prove.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Oia's Main Street, Greece

The natural beauty of Oia village in combination with its traditional architecture which consists of white washed houses, old mansions where captains used to live, narrow streets and blue domed churches, make this village unique thus extremely popular to the visitors.
