Remembrance of the Pirate Raids in Naoussa for a Night When Nobody Sleeps
Inside the museum, you will be able to learn more details about the previous centuries, as far as maritime is concerned. You can find some truly amazing tools and other pieces of equipment, along with their descriptions for every traveller to fully understand what each item had been used for. Besides the exhibits that are available for the public, there are also documents that have to do with nautical operations and sales, as well as agreements and contracts. These are the most eloquent proof of the wealthy past of the people in the island regarding the navy. Of course, in Oia there is a small port that is called Ammoudi. This is the place where the boats used to sail in the past and transfer people and merchandise to other villages of the island or to other islands nearby. There are 300 steps waiting for you before reaching the port, so you had better be prepared!
If you are fond of hearing about naval forces or if you are intrigued by learning more about the past of each place, this museum is an exceptional point of interest for you to check out.
Oia is a picturesque village, perched on a cliff up high in the island of Santorini. Even though it is not that hospitable at first sight, there are numerous different ways for you to access the village and enjoy its memorable experiences. The most popular method for getting to Oia is by bus, since there is frequent transportation to and from Fira. Fira is of course the heart of Santorini and therefore you do not have to worry about not being able to get easy access at the time of your liking. The bus is really affordable, costing about 3 euros per person.
Of course, there are also various taxi drivers available within your reach and their fare is not high either. You can rent a car and follow the steep route to the village, but you should be extremely cautious if you decide to do so. The road is quite narrow and there are continuous turns and so you need to be on alert and not drive too fast. Another alternative for you, if you are not such a fan of driving or travelling on the shuttle bus, would be to schedule for a ferry trip to the small port of Oia, Ammoudi. This is going to be a delightful experience for you, since you will get the chance to combine your transportation along with the enjoyment of the breathtaking views to the caldera.
