More interesting than we had thought it would be...walked along the pedestrian path by the old town, found the Norman Castle and went in (mainly to use the WC!) to find an interesting art exhibit. We had nice weather, so it was good for a stroll.
Another pre-booking with Piraeus Express. We probably could've made our way on our own, but the convenience of the bus was nice and we enjoyed some excellent conversation with our fellow pax and one of the tour guides. Especially enjoyed the Acropolis, again, more time would've been great, but we knew going into this that the time would be limited.
The weather did not look great as we came into port, but after we took the tender boat over and made our way up the cable car (easy, recommend over donkeys, but we were the only ship in that day, so it may depend on the crowd), we meandered around Fira a bit to have a good strong coffee and then made our way to the bus station to head for Oia. Transit in a foreign country on the local bus is an adventure!! There was a posted schedule but I don't think anyone was following it; we paid a man who appeared to be in charge a few euro and boarded a bus that he said would be leaving for Oia in a few minutes. After the man-in-charge argued with several of the drivers over who would get to take the trip, we eventually departed and by the time we reached Oia, the sun was out and it was really quite breathtaking. We stopped for souvlaki (one of our best meals on the trip!) and then headed out for a photo-safari. Really just a gorgeous place, just like in the pictures.
