The last two Greek ports on our cruise were by far the most beautiful. The first isle we docked at was Santorini. The island of Santorini was formed after an enormous volcanic eruption leaving enormous cliffs on three sides of the island rising almost 1,000 feet from the sea.
We visited the city of Fira which is the capital of Santorini. To get to the city you have a choice of walking a winding pathway, riding donkeys or a cable car ride to the top. Upon the recommendation of the cruise ship, we took the cable car ride to the top.
We spent the day wandering around the streets exploring the shops and enjoying the stunning views. Pictures just do not do the beautiful scenery justice.

I loved the bright colors of the miniature windows and doors.

The water was unbelievably blue. It seemed like around every corner there was another adorable shop or beautiful view. I feel incredibly lucky to have visited these islands and hope to return someday.
