Day 3: Leave by the morning ferry to Santorini. I took the Blue star ferries 7:30 am ship and reached Santorini by 3:30 pm. Check into your hotel and have a relaxed lunch at one of the many fantastic restaurants in Firostefani. Come back to your hotel in time to enjoy the sunset while sipping the delicious Greek Vinsanto wine.
Day 5: Explore the beautiful village of Akrotiri which is at one end of the C-Shaped island (Oia being the other end). Visit the Akrotiri's Archeological site and marvel at how the red sand of the Red Beach perfectly contrasts the cobalt blue Mediterranean waters. Head over to the gorgeous Santo Winery for sampling rare greek wines and enjoy yet another splendid Santorini sunset. You could take a winery tour!
Day 7: Keep one day free just to relax and soak in the beauty of Santorini as much as you can. Explore the market in Fira town to buy some souvenirs, marvel at the sunset in Imerovigli and enjoy the lovely food. We were lucky to see a spectacular display of fireworks over the volcano, Nea Kameni, as part of the annual fireworks festival or Iftesia.
