Europe’s most beautiful hilltop towns
Picturesque hilltops aren’t always wild and empty. Some are adorned by ancient castles or churches, with pretty towns teetering on the edge. These vertiginous villages exude a special aura and offer far-reaching vistas over the landscape below. CNN published a list with 10 of the most beautiful hilltop towns in Europe. Among them, in the 3rd place is a Greek island.
Santorini stands out and as mentioned in the article “the countless cruise ships and daily tourist flights can make the tiny island of Santorini feel cramped. Yet brave the crowds and head to Oia, on the northern tip of Greece’s most famous caldera, and you’ll find a picture-postcard village of white houses, windmills and blue-domed churches. Few Greek islands can match the sunset from here, best viewed from a rooftop bar”.
