Santorini day 3 exploring the island
Tuesday, October 15, 2013
Oia, Egeo, Greece
Today we rented a car and drove the whole island starting at the southern point to view a prehistoric town that dates back to 5000 BC. Next we drove to Black Beach, the most developed and touristy place in santorini, interesting but made us appreciate Oia even more. Next we visited one of the oldest wineries in santorini to do a little wine tasting. Their grapes are unique as they don't water the vines due to lack of water here and this gives the grapes a unique quality. Finally we explored one of 400 churches in santorini, all but 20 are privately owned and were created by wealthy land owners. We ended the day with a good dinner of veal and salmon at the hotel dining room.
