Oia, pronounced eee-yah, is a beautiful scenic village on the west edge of Santorini and is known for its famed blue domed churches and white-washed homes. It's built on a steep slope with its buildings carved within and the narrow pathways winding throughout. In all my travels, I have never seen anything like it. You can wander the main road above the passageways, which is a straight road that runs through the village, where you can enjoy a yummy mediterranean meal or shop through the local boutiques.
Anywhere you go in this beautiful village provides breathtaking views. You might have to sneak into a few "restricted" passageways to get photos without tourists though haha. Shhh, don't tell. The island can get busy, especially during peak season, which is typically from June to August. I was informed the best time to come is April / May or September / October, which is when we were there. The climate is generally mild year-round, but it reaches its highs between June and September.
Regardless of when you visit, I know you will enjoy your stay. It's truly a once-in-a-lifetime trip and one I hope you all get to experience.
Next up? Rome! So be sure to stay tuned!
