Although the image appeared to have no one next to it, there was a long line of tourists waiting for their chance to stand on a particular staircase and take an image.

‘Showing the reality behind Oia, Santorini. It will most likely be packed at the famous sunset in Oia and people will line up to take pictures at the spots with the blue domes unless you get there at 7am,’ Lucy explained in the caption of the picture.

‘Oia is one of the most beautiful cities in the world, so it’s no wonder it attracts so many people. Would you like to wake up early to see Oia without the crowds?!’

Lucy revealed that she had visited the island of Santorini every summer for the past three years and found she was getting busier and busier.

“It was nice to see it empty in 2020, but that’s definitely not the case now… If you want to experience Santorini with peaceful and more authentic vibes, you should definitely stay away from the mentioned hotspots and get lost in the alleyways or visit other villages like Imerovigli, Mesaria, Megalochori and Fira which are always less busy,” she said.

Her 200,000 subscribers were shocked by the scenes Lucy had filmed, and many were surprised by the crowds waiting for a singular photo.

‘It will be me…. Go out like the people!!!! I need a solo shot!!’ Another wrote.

The blue domes of Agios Spyridonas and Anastaseos churches in Oia are considered one of Santorini’s most photographed rooftops.

The two buildings are side by side and are iconic examples of the island’s Cycladic architecture.

There are some great viewpoints along the lanes west of the churches, and they often get crowded towards the end of the day as people secure the best spot for the perfect sunset shot.
