A member of our web team just returned from a ten-day vacation in Greece with stops in Athens, Mykonos and Santorini. The first three days were spent in Athens at Hotel Grande Bretagne where daily breakfasts were enjoyed at the rooftop restaurant, with a view of the Parthenon in the distance.
Things to Do in Santorini
Favorite Trip Moment: Watching the sunset from the balcony with our “sunset cocktail.” The fading light and reflection of the sky hit the infinity pool at the perfect angle, reflecting the sky as if it were double. And the intimate environment at the five-room hotel – it felt like we were in our own private villa.
Where to Eat: The Tsitouras Collection’s breakfast. It is beautifully presented and delicious. I could eat their warm chocolate croissants every single day. For a bit of local flavor and traditional Greek cooking try Nikolas Taverna, or for something a bit more upscale and a great sunset spot, Archipelagos Restaurant overlooking the caldera is nice in the evening. Dimitris in Ammoudi Bay is right on the water and offers fresh-caught seafood.
Insiders’ Tip: Look left from the hotel towards Fira before choosing to go into town. If there is a huge cruise liner anchored in the port, you may want to wait until the tourists clear out before heading that way. We heard they usually dock on Wednesdays and can increase the population in town by up to 20, 000 people (yikes!).
Overall: Firostefani is the perfect setting. The Tsitouras Collection is situated right onto the cliffside surrounded by whitewashed buildings, hanging over the lip of the caldera. The separation from the more touristy areas of Oia and Fira was ideal, because you are far enough away to have some peace and quiet, yet close enough to reach either in a few minutes time.
Daytrip: Rent a car for 40 Euros (or hire a driver) and explore the island for the day. It is around the same price to get a return taxi to Oia from Firostefani, and the freedom is worth navigating the windy roads. The red beaches near Akrotiri are stunning, and lunch at Dimitris in Amoudi Bay is a must.enthusiasm without wisdom enthusiast gaming enthusiast gaming glassdoor enthusiast of many things enthusiast plural enthusiast stock enthusiasts luther good deeds def good deeds dirty deeds pembroke ma good deeds in christianity good deeds in the bible good deeds jar ramadan good deeds lowell good deeds movie cast opposite of enthusiasm in english xjs enthusiasts yoga enthusiasts young enthusiasts synonym curb your enthusiasm like shows curb your enthusiasm off sky doing good deeds without recognition word enthusiasm antonym enthusiasm biblical meaning enthusiasm claude vonstroke enthusiasm gone too far 5 letters enthusiasm history of word enthusiasm into meaning enthusiasm into noun enthusiasm nghĩa là gì enthusiasm nyt crossword enthusiasm origin enthusiasm questionnaire enthusiasm quotes enthusiasm roller coaster enthusiasm sentence enthusiasm spelling enthusiasm to or for enthusiasm towards synonym enthusiasm with synonym enthusiast def enthusiast gaming news enthusiast in a sentence enthusiast in spanish enthusiast motorsports enthusiast usage enthusiasts with examples enthusiasts word good deeds articles good deeds as filthy rags good deeds beget good deeds good deeds bracelet good deeds community center good deeds day good deeds don't go unpunished good deeds during ramadan good deeds electronics good deeds vs grace good deeds you can do for others nvidia enthusiasts platform kdm things to put after your username what does enthusiasm out mean what happens to deeds when someone dies adjective for enthusiasm bat enthusiasts benidorm enthusiast youtube best good deeds can you be too enthusiastic in an interview car enthusiasts near me childlike enthusiasm curb your enthusiasm like shows difference between enthusiasm and determination difference between enthusiasm and inspiration difference between enthusiasm and zest enthusiasm about meaning enthusiasm and enthusiasm as a leadership trait enthusiasm at crossword enthusiasm dictionary enthusiasm en espanol enthusiasm enthusiast enthusiasm for learning enthusiasm for life enthusiasm for or about enthusiasm for teaching enthusiasm gone too far
