Amazing views of the Caldera while walking. When on Santorini, and you're physically ok, you have to make this hike. I took a bus from Oia to Fira and hiked the 11 km back in about 4 hours. The last hill, you can use a donkey if you want. Do take some refreshments and a hat. I did the complete hike on sneakers. Amazing views of the Caldera. The last chapel on the road is also an amazing spot to watch the sunrise without being surrounded by a crowd (tip from a local).
We did this hiking in family, adventurous experience.
