I reached Santorini with an early morning boat from Crete, a mere two-hour-and-twenty-minute journey that led me to another world. It wasn't exactly cheap (55€), but if there was one island that I really wanted to visit it was Santorini.When you get off the boat you'll find yourself at the bottom of a very high cliff and you'll necessarily have to take a bus (€2,20) to tackle the long hairpin road to the main town, Fira (also spelled Thira or Thera).
Romance is another name for Santorini, for if you will not fall in love with this beauty, you will not fall in love with anything else. Dramatic cliff tops, overlooking the striking blue Aegan sea and the sparkling white architecture make this volcanic island the coolest place to be for honeymooners.
We came back to Fira and started exploring the restaurants and shopping area. The cliff side restaurants are amazing. We opted for outdoor seating and enjoyed the Fira sunset and amazing Greek food and red wine. A perfect romantic dinner on our honeymoon!
