Sunset on Oia

Santorini is famous for its sunrises and sunsets. And Oia is one of the more famous spots for watching them. Last September, we ended our first full day in Greece with a short trip to the picturesque community.

After an hour or two exploring the village, with its charming stone houses, blue-domed churches, taverns and boutiques and a marble-paved walkway along the cliffs, my cousin and I picked a rooftop restaurant to wait for the sun to set. We ordered granitas to soothe our parched throats. Mine was a pear one, while E’s was a watermelon, I think.

And we had to order the bruschetta with pesto and prosciutto when we saw it on the menu.


At some point we noticed a sudden hush among the crowd of tourists as the sun began to set and everyone turned to admire its splendor. And snap a few photos, of course.
