One of the most fascinating and well-known destinations in Greece for both relaxation and cultural objectives in Santorini/Thira. Its natural beauty makes it one of the most visited destinations in the world.
Santorini is compiled by Thira that is the main island and four small isles Thirassia, Aspronisi, Palea, and Nea Kameni. Palea and Nea Kameni are volcanoes from which the beautiful scenery of Caldera was formulated. Enjoy the panoramic view from Caldera and the legendary sunset of Oia. It will unfold in front of your eyes with some amazingly extraordinary colours which will be a feast for your eyes and that can be witnessed only once in a lifetime.
Of course, Santorini's villages have many faces, such as Firostefani and Imerovigli with an endless blue view of the Aegean Sea or Pyrgos a fortress village. If you are an aficionado of the long historical side of Santorini, Akrotiri and Megalohori should be on your to-visit list since both occupy archaeological sites of incredible importance. Finally, a landmark that includes a big part of Santorini's history, is Ancient Thira in Kamari, where one can find a mix of the old history of Santorini with the Museum of Prehistoric Thira, the Archaeological Museum, and the newest parts of Santorini's history such as the Folklore museum and contemporary art galleries and centres located in Fira.
Another aspect that Santorini is famous for is the beautiful coastal line, which is decorated with varied coloured beaches such as red, white or black sand, creating rather alternative landscapes.
It is highly recommended to go sailing around this truly diverse island, whether it is to admire the endless blue of the Aegean Sea and its unparalleled beauty. If one prefers hiking better, you can simply visit and explore through the unearthly and powerful scenery of the volcanos.
Finally, for people with more delicate interests, Santorini is rather well-known for its vinsanto that you can try by visiting a wine museum to learn about its secrets behind its volcanic taste.
Santorini will leave you wondering what other blessings this island is hiding and can only invite you to explore them...
