A captivating tale

You’ll see the remnants of the village’s seafaring past as you explore Oia. Look out for the quaint cave houses carved into the rocks. They were originally built for the ship crews and were considered dwellings for the poor, while the wealthy ship owners lived in towering two-storey mansions.

Marvellous marble

You’ll feel like royalty as you meander the main marble walkway. Wandering past art galleries, gift shops and bougainvillea-cloaked cafés is made even more magical when you’re pottering over this pretty polished stone. It’s a popular plot, so expect crowds!

Boutique browsing

Bobbing in and out of Oia’s boutiques is an attraction in itself. Gaze at goodies from Greek designers and admire the artistry of local crafts. Bit of a bookworm? Don’t miss Atlantic Books – the exterior’s painted in the style of a bookshelf! And inside? Well, you’re in for a treat.
