Now that the longest day of the year has arrived, I’m already dreaming of sunshine and warm weather. This morning I saw what looks like the perfect place to be: Atlantis Books in Santorini, Greece. Imagine sitting at the table in the picture, looking out over the sea, and reading, reading, reading; going for the occasional stroll along the shore and then coming back to read some more, or maybe to just sit there and soak up the sun.
Atlantis Books, which opened in 2004, is in the tiny village of Oia in Santorini. It’s a small literary haven tucked into the basement of a traditional whitewashed building overlooking the caldera. The shop has become a landmark and must-visit destination for both travelers and locals.
