Oia-Santorini-Greece

Greece has so many inhabited islands. Santorini is a volcanic island known for its spectacular sights, dazzling sunsets, and houses with overwhelming designs. The moment you step at this island, do not fail to taste its scrumptious local wine and classy restaurants with mouth-watering foods. You will hear vampire stories but do not worry; no one has seen one yet. Instead of taking the plane, you can opt to travel by sea. It may take a little time but it is amazing to watch the banded cliffs of brown, black, and red crowned by snow-white tufa, light lava that is still a beautiful sight of the island.

The Parthenon is on the top of the Acropolis in Greece and your travel to Athens would be useless if you fail to come on this temple. The people here considered this place not only as a plain temple but also as a fortress in times of distress, a church where most people come to worship and a mosque for the Islam. The primordial Parthenon is perhaps the gemstone in the cap of the entire of Greece, and appears dramatic when lighten up at nighttime and standing superiorly over the city below.
