I’m going to make this intro short and sweet, became that’s exactly what I was looking for when I was doing research on Europe backpacking. I would say that my own personal travel style is 40% planner/60% ‘we’ll figure it out there’, so I wasn’t exactly looking for a play-by-play itinerary but I was interested in finding average prices and recommended routes.
When people think of Santorini they think of Oia. The white-washed buildings, the sky-blue roofs, the beautiful ocean view – that’s all Oia. I fell in love with this little northern village when I visited, and when I go back to Santorini this is where I’m headin' for sure! Oia is small and expensive, so I wouldn’t choose to stay here if you’re on a budget, but fear not, the island has a ton of inexpensive public buses running there all day.
