The village of Oia is the island´s most iconic, and equally touristy, destination. Reflecting perfectly the idea of Santorini that dwells in everybody's mind, the settlement sits 150m above the sea level developing down the slope of the volcanic caldera. The postcard-like view of the village is characterized by its peculiar white and blue houses and cave houses dug on the caldera cliff, originally owned by fishermen. From here, the vantage location offers a sweeping view of the volcano as well as one of Santorini´s most suggestive sunset spots. Shops, museums and art galleries line up neatly down Oia's main road and its narrow crescents that can be easily explored on foot. The village is surrounded by vineyards, providing wine to the local restaurants and bars which are particularly renowned for their fresh seafood.
