The only instruction we were given was to get on the green boat. It was a little late, but at least it had A/C.

There’s only one road that zigzags the side of the cliff to get to the cities in Santorini. You can kind of see it on the right.

Astra Suites

The suites are literally on the cliff side and there are a maze of stairs to get to your suite.
