Our next stop on the Footsteps of Paul Tour was a place Paul probably did not visit. We enjoyed it anyway!

Santorini, one of the Cyclades islands in the Aegean Sea, was devastated by a volcanic eruption in the 16th century B.C.E., forever shaping its rugged landscape and villages. The whitewashed, cubist houses of its 2 principal towns, Fira and Oia, cling to cliffs above an underwater caldera (crater). They overlook the clear Aegean and beaches made up of black, red and white lava pebbles.

Santorini is the most popular island in Greece. It may be the most popular island in the world. There are few travel destinations that combine beautiful beaches, spectacular scenery, ancient cities, amazing restaurants, some of the world’s best wine, and an active volcano. But Santorini has all this and more.

We took cable car to top, others hiked up!
Everything is perched on the hillside.

Some homes are built into the hillside. Prime real estate.
Can you imagine having this view everyday?
We made it to the top!
One of many towers.

Sounds like a plan!
