Santorini

The brighter side of sunset

The whole complex of Santorini islands – part of Cyclades -is still an active volcano and probably the only volcano in the world whose crater is in the sea. Twelve huge eruptions occurred, one every 20,000 years approximately, and each violent eruption caused the collapse of the volcano’s central part creating a large crater (caldera).

The most recent volcanic activity on the island occurred in 1950. The whole island is actually a huge natural geological/volcanological museum where you can observe a wide range of geological structures and forms. Cousteau looked for the lost city of Atlantis on Santorini.

Romantic destination

The island has a growing reputation as a wedding destination for couples not only from Greece but from all over the world. A trip to Santorini is a dream for anyone who has seen at least one photo of the island’s famous Caldera, beneath Santorini’s famous sunset.

Worth visiting

Firá is the picturesque capital of the island; perched high up on the edge of the Caldera, it looks like a marvelous painting. Firá, together with Oia, Imerovígli and Firostefáni located high above on a cliff, make up the so-called “Caldera’s eyebrow”, the balcony of Santorini, which offers an amazing view of the volcano. Other famous smaller villages are Akrotíri and Méssa Vounó, with their famous archaeological sites, Pýrgos, Karterádes, Emporió, Ammoúdi, Finikiá, Períssa, Perívolos, Megalohóri, Kamári, Messariá and Monólithos: some of the villages are cosmopolitan some more peaceful.

Gastronomic delights

A visit to Santorini is the ultimate gastronomic experience, as the island is a true culinary paradise. Treat your taste buds to some famous traditional products like cherry tomatoes, white eggplants, fava, caper and “hloró tyrí”, a special kind of fresh goat cheese found on the island, or why not try some of the exceptional wines produced from grapes grown in the volcanic soil of the island. Assyrtiko, Athyri, Aidani, Mantilaria and Mavrotragano are just some of the distinctive varieties that you can taste at the island’s famous wineries (some of them operate as a museum as well).

Head to volcanic beaches

Enjoy deep blue waters and beaches with white, red or black sand or volcanic pebbles, spectacular rock formations and impressive lunar landscapes.

You can reach it by plane or by ship from Piraeus. Experience for yourself the once-in-a-lifetime romance and charm of this pearl of the Aegean.

Virtute tibique ad sit. Cu nam dolorum honestatis, ei accusamus disputationi sit, ferri feugiat in vis. Cum soleat posidonium et, mazim evertitur comprehensam ea eam.
