While traveling through Greece, it was the island of Santorini that absolutely captured my heart. Though we spent most of our time exploring the village of Oía, we spent our nights in Fira because accommodations were a bit more affordable there.
We stayed at the lovely Anatoli Hotel, where we were surrounded by picturesque Greek churches and sublime ocean views. When we weren't swimming or tanning by the pool, we ventured through the alleys that winded up towards the center of town. Although I wasn't a huge fan of downtown Fira, wandering through these hidden pathways gave Fira its charm.
Truth be told, I'd give just about anything to be back in Fira laying out by the pool, eating gyros and admiring all of the unexpected pops of color. Santorini embodies paradise in almost every imaginable way.
