First and foremost, you’re going to get a nice work out climbing up. If you don’t want to walk up the switchbacks you can drive mostly to the top. My husband and I parked at the bottom and climbed all the way and it felt...More

Well worth a visit, the unearthed structures and reconstructions make for an interesting historical visit. The price of €4 each is a small price to pay, even if it’s just for the backdrop views! Well worth a visit

Oh my days. Breathtaking. If you’re able & down for the challenge, walk up the full road route - there are plenty of benches to stop at in the shade (with unbelievable views) and the traffic isn’t too heavy to be worried about it, just...More

We were staying in Kamari and decided to hike up the hill. Took about 50 minutes including a stop at a church perched in a hollow part way up. Lovely views from the top where ancient Thira is situated. Although ruins, the evidence of this...More
