If you do something like island hoping or if you just make a stop during your travel to Crete at Santorini, you have got to climb up the hills and watch the landscape , especially the coastal cliff way from Fira to Oia. There are also several historical sites, that are really interesting, like the digging site of ancient Thira. There are also the digging at Akrotiri, and nice is also the museum of Nomikos.
