With the MSC cruise we had one day here. Very nice but also really hot in July! Small shops all over with almost every seller learned to speak few Chinese words!

You need lots of water, sun cream and good shoes to do this walk but it is worth it. Excellent views along the way from Fira to OIa and a good opportunity to get away from the crowds at either end. Keep to the shore above the cable car to find the path. Lots of cafe and restaurants along the... More

This is a great walk with some steep hills and the paths can be quite rocky at times. We recommend wearing good shoes, bringing enough water and wearing sun screen as it can get very hot. The total trip length is approximately 10-12kms which we completed in 3 hours on our first time and 2 hours on our second (taking... More

Really enjoyed this walk, great way to explore the island and see some absolutely stunning views. We left Fira around 4pm and took approx 2.5 hours to reach Oia.

This was a beautiful hike. Difficulty level is probably 6/10. You have to be fit, have good endurance and a good cardio. The hike takes about 3-4 hours. Wear good running or hiking shoes because the path gets very rough. Bring Kleenex and baby wipes. Also, the bathrooms on the paths are wholes in the grounds. Bring a lot of... More

We had the advantage of a rental car so we started an finished in Imerovigli and enjoyed the views going in both directions. The cafes and shops on the cliffside are particularly inviting (try a bottle of Red or Yellow Donkey beer); so after the crush of Fira it's a pleasant relief to stroll back along the cliffside ... enjoy!

We did the whole walk from Fira to Oia, which was longer than we thought. You can join it further along, however we walked through a couple of villages and saw some stunning views and amazing properties on the hillsides. Well worth it. We walked in pumps but it was rough in places.

Give yourself about 4 hours to make the trip and stop along the way to admire the scenery and take photos. Try to get there by sunset as it's spectacular. Then catch the bus out of town back the Fira.

This was one of our highlights while at Santorini. It took 2.5 hours, leisurely walking. The start was a bit confusing, just stick to the road/path nearest the coastline and you can't go wrong. When in doubt go left. In the odd place you'll see Oia and an arrow written in white paint on the ground which helps. So gorgeous,... More
