Getting Engaged? Two Top Spots for a Proposal in Santorini, Greece
I spent 2 weeks in Santorini scouring the landscape for special spots and magical views of the volcano. There are a multitude of choices when it comes to beautiful views, but none captured my attention more than these two. If you are looking for that magical setting to pop the question in one of the world's leading locations for romance, these may be the spots for you.
The first is sweet, hidden and nearly unknown to the locals. There is a heart carved naturally into the side of the caldera giving you a unique view of the volcano.
Only steps away from this natural love carving you will find the chapel of Agios Nikolaos built carefully into the side of the caldera. It is in the Megalochlori area of Santorini tucked deep away far from prying eyes and tourist directories.
The second spot is as uniquely special, but more of an effort to get to. It is a church located at the highest point along the caldera. You will have to hike an uphill climb to it, but well worth the effort. It is about a 25 -30 minute walk from the town of Oia. Time your journey to arrive about 30 minutes before sundown. It is my top pick for the best sunset view on the island.
Both of these locations are worthy of any proposal and will be sure to deliver a memorable moment. Timing either to happen at sunset will make certain a 'Yes' is in your future.Continued on the next page
