The power of this volcanic island creates an energy that overwhelms the senses. A volcano embraced by the Aegean, this island-phenomenon in the Cyclades gives its visitors a mythical experience. Santorini – also known as Thera in Greek – is the island immortalized by poets and painters, thanks to its celebrated light, multi-coloured cliffs and picture-perfect sunsets. On this island all senses are magnified, a product of its many contrasts: black earth against whitewashed homes clinging to the cliffside, or wild volcanic sculptures against sleek Cycladic lines.
Reasons to visit Santorini
Santorini is considered to be the most sought after place for a romantic getaway in Greece, since there are not many places in the world where you can enjoy exquisitely clear waters while perched on the rim of a massive active volcano in the middle of the sea!
Akrotiri is a prehistoric city that lies beneath a bioclimatic shelter. Walking over wooden bridges you will encounter one of the most important and well-preserved civilizations in the Mediterranean, which was covered by the ashes of the great volcanic eruption of 1600 B.C. A world frozen in time awaits you.
Santorini is home to a plethora of sights that captivate visitors. From the dramatic cliff views in Fira and Oia to the unique volcanic beaches with red, white, and black sands, the island promises a visual feast. Don't miss the mesmerizing Santorini caldera, a testimony to the island's volcanic origin, promising unforgettable views. Experiencing the sunset from Oia, as thousands do each year, is a ritual. For a few minutes, the energy of the landscape is palpable. When the fiery sun sinks into the Aegean, this scene will be forever emblazoned across your mind and cherished in your heart.
