Every day hundreds of visitors come to Oia just to experience its sunsets.
Kick off your visit on the 9th (Fri): stop by Replica and then do a tasting at Domaine Sigalas. On the 10th (Sat), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: take in the exciting artwork at Mnemossyne Gallery, learn about all things military at Naval Maritime Museum, explore the activities along Amoudi Bay, then take in the architecture and atmosphere at Ekklisia Panagia Platsani, and finally make a trip to Sunset in Oia.

For maps, photos, ratings, and tourist information, read our Oia day trip planning app .

Athens to Oia is an approximately 4.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight, car, and ferry; or ride a ferry. While traveling from Athens, expect a bit cooler days and about the same nights in Oia, ranging from highs of 36°C to lows of 28°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 10th (Sat) to allow enough time to drive to Fira.
