Three Instagram-Worthy Places I Visited in Greece

1. Thira, Santorini

This town is a must when visiting Santorini. The beautiful views, windy streets, shopping, gelato shops, and restaurants can keep you busy from sunrise to sunset. My friends and I were only there for the weekend, so we had to make it a quick visit. We really enjoyed Thira because it was easy to navigate, and within a few steps you could be standing in between a breathtaking view and your favorite boutique.



2. Plaka, Athens

Plaka was one of my favorite neighborhoods. It’s in the heart of Athens and near all of the historical sights. A very famous restaurant, called A for Athens, has a great view of the Acropolis and Plaka. My friends and I would take the metro to Plaka and then walk around for hours and hours. I really enjoyed seeing all the Greek restaurants, shops, and architecture near this part of Athens. Looking back at my trip, I really wish I got myself out to Plaka more often to explore more. Oh well, I guess I just have to go back!




3. Little Venice, Mykonos

During the very first weekend my friends and I got to Greece and knew we had to plan a trip to Mykonos. The island exceeded my expectations. My favorite part of Mykonos was Little Venice and I definitely recommend staying in that spot. I remember walking to get gelato when it was pitch black outside, but it still seemed like daylight because of all the light that reflected off of the white painted walls.
