Santorini, the southernmost member of the Cyclades, is probably the most intriguing island of Greece. Simply its name is more than enough to unfold in mind stunning sunsets and scenery, white, red and black sand beaches, impressive traditional houses, balconies with view to the Volcano and lively night life.
Santorini or Thira island was the site of one of the largest volcanic eruptions in the world and what remains today is a submerged volcano and a caldera. Amazing villages have been constructed on the edge of this caldera, with Cycladic architecture, breathtaking view to the sea. Apart from that, Santorini is also famous for its astonishing sunsets. The colors that streak the sky change from lilac to deep purple, from yellow to orange and to red, as the golden sun sinks while reflecting its light on to the sea and the surrounding little islands. This island is an idyllic destination, which offers relaxation, but also lots of activities and lively nightlife. Some of the villages are cosmopolitan and some of them are more peaceful; they are surrounded by vast vineyards; whitewashed cliff-top towns with castles affording amazing views out over the Aegean. The village of Fira is probably the most popular place offering a wide range of restaurants and bars. The amazing view, the delicious local specialities combined with the famous Vinsanto wine and the relaxed atmosphere promise an unforgettable experience. The island’s wonderful wineries are ready to welcome you for a private wine tasting and introduce you to the island’s indigenous varieties.
