Oia’s divine weddings

Sugared almond desserts and an odd number of dishes are among the typical customs in Greece. Speaking of weddings, getting hitched in such a wonderful place like Santorini doesn’t sound like a bad idea whatsoever.

Fall in love with Fira

Santorini’s beaches: pebbly, yet charming

P.S. If you’ve already marked Santorini on your map, note that the summer season there is heavily crowded between June-August. Early Fall, for one, is still pretty hot, but less crowded and noisy. Take action and book your hotel for an unbelievable perennial vacation in Santorini!
