Is it really expensive to go to Santorini? Yes, as a matter of fact it is! It’s one of the most expensive places you can ever go to in Greece. The only way to cut back the cost of your trip to Santorini is to go there during the off-peak season but you risk of having most of the establishments closed as the business is slow during this period. I personally wouldn’t mind that and would love to visit this

Oia pronounced as Eeyah is the prettiest and the most sophisticated village in the island of Santorini.

Our breakfast was delivered and set-up on our balcony. It was our second day in Santorini and the lady at Kiklaminos Studios and Apartments was taking good care of us since the day we arrived.

After breakfast, we went for a
