I always wanted to visit Santorini and since we booked our holiday in Crete it seemed a great idea to book a day trip to this most picturesque Greek island.. The place is magical, a paradise for any keen photographer however.. you see thousands of them in one place! The crowds were unbelievable- there was a queue in front of any possible viewing points and we had to literally push through crowds to make way for us and our 3 year old. If you think about it it is one narrow street leading from Fira to Oia and every day there are at least 3 cruise liners anchored at the shores of Santorini with another couple of day trip vessels from Crete- most likely 5 thousands of people trying to fit in one narrow street! And that doesn't include local holidaymakers.. Santorini is a wonderful place but if you have an option- visit outside of the high season and stay on the island rather than opting for a day trip..Then you might even get a chance to find a table in one of the restaurants on the way, sit down, relax and enjoy the most stunning views..
