We arrived in Santorini mid-day, grabbed our ride to the hotel, and settled in. And the view from our hotel was wonderful, but we wanted to get out and see more of this famous little island, so we set out to walk the 20 minutes to Fira for lunch and for some classic Santorini views. We set out along the main road (which has no sidewalks by the way) and wandered in the general direction of Fira. Finally we came across a pathway from the road into the town and wandered along stone pathways with views out over the ocean. Eventually we came across a little cafe situated with a view overlooking the water and ducked in for some Greek food, all while looking out over the white washed buildings and enjoying the scenic views.
After lunch we sauntered down the sidewalk along the Caldera, stopping for photos and to browse little shops. Finally, we made our way back up to the main road, jumped in a cab and headed back to our hotel for our first Santorini sunset.
