Oia
The Essential
Highly recommended
Oia is unquestionably one of the most beautiful but also the most chic villages on the island of Santorini. It offers both the picturesque vision of pastel-coloured troglodytic dwellings, clinging to the cliff, the nostalgic charm of the patrician villas and the very chic atmosphere of tourist establishments. Visit Oia before the cruise boats turn up, when it is quiet and the typically Cycladic atmosphere is particularly conducive to leisurely walks.
