Every day hundreds of visitors come to Oia just to experience its sunsets.
On the 17th (Fri), learn about winemaking at Venetsanos Winery, then stroll through KAMARA BEACH, and then take in the architecture and atmosphere at Cathedral of Saint John the Baptist. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the 18th (Sat): view the masterpieces at Mnemossyne Gallery, stop by Atlantis Books, see the interesting displays at Wine Museum Koutsogiannopoulos, then kick back and relax at Red Beach, and finally delve into the distant past at Akrotiri.

Quickly create a custom-made itinerary for Oia using our trip planner.

Oklahoma City, USA to Oia is an approximately 23-hour flight. You can also do a combination of bus and flight; or do a combination of train, bus, and flight. Traveling from Oklahoma City to Oia, you'll lose 8 hours due to the time zone difference. Plan for somewhat warmer nights when traveling from Oklahoma City in May since evenings lows in Oia dip to 63°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 19th (Sun) early enough to travel to Milos.

The result of thousands of years of volcanic activity, the island of Milos features a craggy coastline interspersed by shallow beaches.
Kick off your visit on the 19th (Sun): kick back and relax at Sikia Beach and then enjoy the sand and surf at Kleftiko Beach. On the next day, tour the pleasant surroundings at Plathiena Beach, explore the historical opulence of Venetian Castle of Milos, examine the collection at Sand Museum, then don't miss a visit to Adamas World War Two Bomb Shelter, and finally make a trip to Old Sulfur Mines at Paliorema.

Plan my Milos trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Ride a ferry from Oia to Milos in 3 hours. In May, plan for daily highs up to 74°F, and evening lows to 62°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 21st (Tue) to allow enough time to travel to Athens.
