Santorini – Part 3

Let’s take a walk. As I mentioned before, the main villages in Santorini are located along the cliff tops. They must have been distinct villages at one stage, but these days they have merged into one long village. We start off at the quarry, opposite our hotel. The town of Fira looms large.

A wander down the back alleys took us past a church, where the bell-ringer was getting a morning work-out.

The hotels and pensions were stacked way down the cliff side in this area. Even though the view would be great, I wouldn’t fancy a 100 stair walk everytime I wanted something.

Looking up, we had a long, long way to go yet.

There was option to take the easy way up, if you’re coming in from the bottom of the cliff off the ships. But we came by plane and so came by taxi.

Soon we were able to stop at a cafe, and admire the view.

But don’t go away as we’re only halfway through the walk!
