The next and last island on the cruise is the island of Santorini, often called the most romantic island of Greece, if not the world. As we approached the harbour of Scala in Santorini, we were advised to be on deck to take in the spectacular view of the volcanic cliffs.
As soon as we reached land, we headed for a coach tour of the island and the wonderful, wonderful village of Oia. This is a photographer's dream come true. I have seen many beautiful photos of Santorini (actually of Oia) and had wished that I could take similar photos and now my wish came true. Everything that I've seen previously in photos is real and is right in front of my eyes. So folks, feast your eyes on the photos below and let your mind wonder in this dream world.
From Oia, we wen to the town of Fira, the capital of Santorini. It is a bit like Oia but after seeing Oia, anything else is second best. Still, there are some beautiful views too as captured below.
From Fira, we took the cable car down to the pier of Scala and we boarded a tender back to the cruise ship in time for our formal dinner tonight. Tonight's dinner was an international affair and after that we attended a gala show. Thus ended our last night of the cruise and we sailed back to Piraeus from dreamy Santorini.
