Spectacular scenery, ancient cities, unspoiled beaches, perfectly aged wine, mouthwatering cuisine, and an active volcano – all this and more await you at the Greek island of Santorini.
Santorini embodies the perfect Greek holiday. That’s why people come in droves to this amazing island every year. Although it is referred to as an island, Santorini is actually comprised of five islands. The main island Thira (many call Santorini) is surrounded by Aspronisi and Thirasia. These two islands used to belong to one primitive island called Stroggili until a major volcanic activity (about 1645 BC) created a Caldera and divided the island into two. Santorini also includes two volcanic islands: Nea Kameni and Palea Kameni.
Vacation-goers who come to Santorini have nothing but great memories of the island. Atop the edge of the Caldera and overlooking the island complex is the picturesque capital of the island – Fira. From afar, it looks like a perfectly scaled painting, marvelously carved out on the hill. Along with Fira are Firostefani, Imerovigle and Oia which compose the “Caldera’s eyebrow.” It is also dubbed as the balcony of Santorini as it provides an unobstructed and amazing view of the volcano.
You can also find different villages, each with its distinct character. Some of the more known smaller villages include: Messa Vouno and Akrotiri – popular for their archeological sites, Finikia, Emporio, Pyrgos, Perissa, Karterades, Megalohori, Perivolos, Kamari, Monolithos, Ammoudi, and Messaria. Every village offers unique experience: some are laidback and more peaceful, others are cosmopolitan and busier. Immersing into each village’s unique tradition is certainly a rewarding experience. Around the island are vast vineyards where some of the best wines are born. The whitewashed houses that dot the hill make a breathtaking architectural wonder.
