"Santorini, The Romance is on the Air" Santorini Island by dimilag
Santorini Island Travel Guide: 1,604 reviews and 5,124 photos
Though typically a part of the Cyclades, Santorini is a unique, special
island, unlike any other in Greece – or the world, actually. A volcano that collapsed into its own crater after a massive eruption in 1600 B.C., caused the ancient island of Stroggyli to effectively evaporate. The steaming sea filled the gap, creating today’s Caldera.
Only the outline of the former island remained: Today’s Santorini.
The sight of the towering cliff face as you enter the small volcanic archipelago is awe inspiring. The archipelago consists of Thira, its smaller sibling Thirasia, and two impressive jet-black volcanic islets in the middle of the Caldera, Palia and Nea Kameni. Rising to the top of the cliff, you’ll see the Caldera sprawling before you – just pick a spot, and take in the view.
But the island has more to offer than just a view. Incredible products
(the wine, the tiny tomatoes, the white eggplants), the amazing services (top-quality accommodation, incredible restaurants), the small distances, the variety of vistas, even the beaches, they offer a complete holiday experience, further enhanced by the incredible spectacle that is the Caldera.
Whether you want to relax, spend some time with your better half, or just get away from everything, no matter what you’re looking for in your vacation, there’s no place in the world that’s likelier to have it than Santorini.
