S A N T O R I N I : (or 'Thira island'),
which is one of the Cyclades islands.

Many breath taking sites and rare phenomenons of volcanic activity in the nearby small islands of Nea and Palea Kameni, make Santorini a 'must place to visit'.
Santorini is one of the few sites of Greece, with wild beauty created by the explosion of a volcano which is in the middle of the gulf of the island.

Santorini consists of three islands: Thira, Thirasia and the Aspronisi. Your trip in this island, the southest island of Cyclades, will be unforgettable.

Santorini is different from the rest of the Cyclades group by virtue of its interesting geological structure, the result of the eruptions of a now inactive volcano.

The landscape is extremely imposing on the western side of the island, where little white houses perch on top of gigantic, steep rocks that plunge abruptly into the sea.

In contrast to the sheer cliffs on the west, the coast on the eastern side of the island has endless stretches of beach with sand or shingle.
