On our fifth day in Santorini, James and I decided to stay local and check out what else Kamari had to offer.

As we’d already visited Kamari Beach on our first day, we decided to hike up to Ancient Thera which Tripadvisor informed us was the second best thing to do there.

Plus, we could see the top of the mountain from our resort so off we went!

See that winding road in the middle of the mountain?

That’s where we went.

On our way to the start, we passed this interesting sign at a restaurant.

Now, my knowledge of Greek culture is limited but when I eat delicious food, my first reaction isn’t to slap my mum.

Anyway, onwards and upwards.

The hike to and from Ancient Thera takes around an hour each way.

We took the paved route and it was pretty pleasant.

One of the hiking king’s many rest stops.

We made it!

Ancient Thera is an antique city on a ridge of the steep, 360 m high Messavouno mountain on the Greek island of Santorini.

It was named after the mythical ruler of the island, Theras, and was inhabited from the 9th century BC until 726 AD.

James was always on the lookout for lizards!

The flowers at the top looked gorgeous against the ruins and views.

Also perfect for our new hip hop album cover.

When we got back into town, we had a light lunch of noodles at Take A Wok, chilled in our room and had dinner at Fistikies just around the corner of our hotel.

I asked for Tabasco with my steak and they reacted like I’d asked them if I could slap their mums.

Despite Tabasco-gate, it had still been a great day.

See you soon for the Volcano Tour!
