I now have a favorite spot in Santorini: Imerovigli, fondly called the ‘balcony to the Aegean’.
Everyone says Oia is the most beautiful but I beg to differ. The views from Oia did not make my jaw drop. This did.
From Imerovigli, you can see all of Santorini — it’s like being in the middle of everything. Akrotiri and Fira to the left, Oia to the right. Right in the middle is the Nea Kameni volcano. Thirassia island in the northeast, with the flat-top Skaros Rock right below it.
Accommodations in Imerovigli also command a hefty price tag. I guess it’s worth the price for the peace and quiet. I’ll go back there someday. That’s for sure. :)
The weather was overcast and not the best day for taking pictures, but I hope you still enjoy viewing the photos!
View from Imerovigli. It looked beautiful even on a cloudy day.

A look to the middle below. A beautiful reminder of what an island of volcanic origin looks like.
That’s me again! A Greek guy who works in one of the resorts offered to take many photos of me. Haha!
To the northeast of Imerovigli is the famous Skaros Rock with Thirassia above it.
A closer look at Skaros Rock from one of the resorts. Notice the trails. People climb Skaros to watch the sunset. Very tiring but they say it’s worth it.
I love the doors in Santorini.
One of the many blue-domed churches on the island.
A night in an exclusive resort in Imerovigli will set you back thousands of dollars.
Santorini owns the blue and white combo!
A tiny stairway…
Imagine being in your own private pool with the best view of Santorini.
