The Top 3 Places To Experience A Santorini Sunset

Oia, Greece - September 28, 2013:

The sun is setting on another summers day in Santorini and people from all corners of the globe are finding a spot to savour a famous Santorini sunset.

Here's our guide to the Top 3 Places to experience your very own Santorini Sunset.

1 | Oia

Oia is the most popular spots for witnessing a Santorini Sunset and it's not hard to see why. Oia's positioning on the northern peninsula of the island gives you a bird's eye view of the sun's magnificent afternoon glow. Take a seat at a local restaurant, tussle for a spot on the old fort or set up your camera beside other sun worshippers on the white steps and paths that line the way.

2 | Yacht

A very special way to experience a Santorini sunset is aboard a sunset cruise in the caldera. As the sun dips ever lower on the horizon, where the sea meets the sky, you become utterly immersed in its aura. And with nothing between you and the horizon but for the soft clap of water at the sides of the boat, this is one experience you'll not easily forget.

3 | Imerovigli

As the highest point on the cliffs of Santorini, Imerovigli is a spectacular spot to experience your very own Santorini Sunset. Not nearly as crowded as Oia, when the sun goes down, there are plenty of spots to carve out as your own and enjoy the magic of this miraculous spectacle. Go on, it's yours for the taking!

It's hard to deny the unmistakable allure of Paris. Just strolling the city's vast avenues and boulevards is a pleasure whether it's your first trip or your seasoned return!

And the major attractions will not disappoint - there is nothing like the timeless icons of the Eiffel Tower, Arc De Triomphe and the Louvre but where Paris really earns its title is in the dawn-to-dusk calendar of cultural events, historic monuments, sights and colourful galleries. And with regional attractions such as Palace De Versailles a short train trip from the city centre and the battlefields of infamous world war battles such as Flanders and Passchendaele an easy day trip, there really is something to suit everyone.
