On this walk, you pass a lot of cute neighbourhoods. The path is easy to follow and although a bit steep sometimes, it is really worth doing. I took a lot of great photos and the scenery was gorgeous!

The trail took us two hours and a half with lots of stops for photos! Beautiful scenery and a relatively easy trail make it well worth it. Make sure you take water and firm-bottomed shoes as the pathway can get rough.

Oia in Santorini is absolutely beautiful. Much nicer than Mykonos. The views are so stunning and peaceful and the blue capped churches blending in with the white buildings are indescribable. I highly recommend going during sunset or sunrise too.

We walked the trail from Fira to Oia and really, REALLY enjoyed it. It has the most beautiful scenic view you can have in Santorini. Was kinda hard sometimes with high mountains to climb but was worth the effort. It was really hot and sunny and took us about 3h30 including lots of picture time!

The hiking trail is full of sights that we always dreamed of, saw in tons of wallpapers and in those 'world's most beautiful pictures' on the web. The blue rooftops and white buildings are everywhere, but THE most famous view is the one attached to this review. This is in Oia. Go to the main square (Church of Panagia) and... More

I have arthritis so it is slightly to the surprise of my wife that I marched to the "top" of Santorini - faster than her!!! - and this was because of two dimensions...1 the outstanding bottle of Cretian wine at lunch and 2 the beckoning of the far end of the town was too overwhelming to resist...in other words this...

Great view, go on a cool, breezy day. We hiked from our hotel in Imerovigli to oia. Very hilly and hot. Some corners you do not have a breeze. I am 3 months prego so this sucked but otherwise, a great workout. Watch your footing on the rocks, pebbles. Also, you have to go along the road around a corner... More

If you are in santorini and would love to explore it the adventurous way, then do it!.. We started at 12:30 pretty late, and stacked up 2 litres of water, a sandwich and 2 bananas. We had a memorable lunch beneath pine trees, near a church and It took us nearly 4.5 hours to reach oia, with a lots of... More

We didn't walk all of it, but we did walk from Imerovgli to Fira and a bit on way to Oia. The entire way would be rough- but we took local bus to Oia & walked around there for an enjoyable morning & lunch. Beautiful views & sunsets. Bring your camera

My husband and I did the walk from Oia to Fira. The view along the path is stunning, you walk by the side of the cliff, overlooking the sea, villages and hills. Most part of the road is easy but you will walk on gravel path. There is a loose gravel section you need to climb up the hill a... More
