An explosion of charm, this is Santorini! This island of Cyclades will give you moments of mythology. Feelings superlative, surrendered to the intensity of contrasts. The black earth with the whitewashed Caldera villages. The wild volcanic sculptures with the simple Cycladic lines.
Of the most important tourist destinations in the world, Santorini (Thira) is a dream that someone sees with eyes open.
Santorini’s loyal friends who visit the island on board each time feel the same seldom emotion as soon as the lines of the famous volcanic island begin to fade away.
Those who visit Santorini for the first time face ecstatic traditional settlements stretching on the edge of the caldera, while the sea breeze accompanies them to Athinios, the small but busy harbor of the island, which welcomes the travelers.
After arriving in Fira, the capital of Santorini, you can now enjoy the magnificent views of the Caldera, New and Old Kameni, Thirasia. Then they only realize that nature was created and the man built where the view is breathtaking.
However, it is not only the unforgettable view of the impressive caldera and the magnificent sunset that attracts the visitor’s attention to Santorini.
A walk through the volcano of Nea Kameni and see the red and black rocks in a wild landscape around the crater. A volcano with a history of 2.5 million years. Opposite the Caldera villages. The myth that wants Santorini to be the lost Atlantis – the state that sank 9,500 years ago – comes alive in front of you.
There are also countless other sights of the island: architectural ornaments, samples of genuine thermaic architecture (Fira, Firostefani, Imerovigli, Oia), the great archaeological sites (Akrotiri, ancient Thira), the traditional settlements (Empireio, Megalohori, Pyrgos) the islands of Nea and Palea Kameni, monuments of special natural beauty and great scientific interest, the excellent Museum of Prehistoric Thera in Fira, the traditional wineries, which reveal to visitors the secrets of the famous Santorini wine.
All of this combined with the excellent hotel infrastructure, the lively nightlife, the cosmopolitan resorts with the organized beaches (Kamari, Perissa and Perivolos), the excellent local cuisine (beans, white eggplants, hot tomatoes, tomato balls etc.).
Those who loved Santorini loved it forever. The locals say he has a heart that strikes loudly and vibrates the mountains, the ground the sea.
