Coordinates: 36°27’43.49″N, 25°22’57.57″E (beginning next to the church of St. George)
Our rating: Worth seeing

 

The promenade stretches along the whole town, and delivers beautiful views of the entire caldera.

The most known and representative part (Nikolaou Nomikou Street) is lined with 19th-century marble. It stretches from the church of St. George, through the main square with the church of Panagia Platsani, up to the former market house (now it houses the Museum of Ancient and Byzantine Musical Instruments).

In this part of the promenade you will find many boutiques of luxury clothing brands, jewelers, hotels, SPAs, art galleries and souvenir shops. It is also by far the most crowded part of the promenade.

The rest of the promenade, behind the Museum of Ancient and Byzantine Musical Instruments, leads to the ruins of the Castle of Oia and stairs to the Bay of Amoudi.
