About Santorini

Santorini is one of the Cyclades islands in the Aegean Sea. It was devastated by a volcanic eruption in the 16th century BC, forever shaping its rugged landscape. The whitewashed, cubiform houses of its two principal towns, Fira and Oia, cling to cliffs above an underwater caldera. They overlook the sea, small islands to the west, and beaches made up of black, red, and white lava pebbles. Akrotiri, a Bronze Age settlement preserved under ash from the eruption, provides a frozen-in-time glimpse into Minoan life. The ruins of Ancient Thera lie on a dramatic bluff that drops to the sea on 3 sides. Fira, the island's commercial heart, has the Archaeological Museum of Thera and boutique shops. It also has a lively bar scene and tavernas serving local grilled seafood and dry white wine, made from the Assyrtiko grape. Oia is famous for sunsets over its old fortress.

Imerovigli village sits on a clifftop overlooking Santorini’s caldera islands. The terraces of its sleek bars, fine-dining restaurants, and upscale boutique hotels, some in caves, are popular sunset viewing spots. The Ekklisia Theoskepasti hiking trail leads past the ruined, 13th-century Skaros Venetian Fortress to the summit of landmark Skaros Rock and the blue-domed Theoskepasti Church on the rock’s flank.

Akrotiri was a Cycladic Bronze Age settlement on the volcanic Greek island of Santorini. The Akrotiri peninsula has a series of pebble coves formed from volcanic rock, including the renowned Red Beach, with striking cliffs stained by iron ore. Akrotiri Lighthouse is noted for its sunset views, and the remains at Akrotiri Prehistoric Village date back to Minoan times. Chic hillside guesthouses and beach apartments overlook seafood tavernas, dive centers, and tour-boat operators along the shore.

Therasia, also known as Thirasía, is an island in the volcanic island group of Santorini in the Greek Cyclades. It lies north-west of Nea Kameni, a small island formed in recent centuries by volcanic activity and thus marking the centre of the island group. Therasia is the second-largest island of the group, the largest by far being Thera.
Nea Kameni

The uninhabited island of Nea Kameni forms part of Santorini’s archipelago caldera and is made up of black lava rock. It is a popular day trip from Fira or Athinios ports on Santorini for its views of neighboring islands and the steep walking paths through Nea Kameni Volcanic Park, which pass active, smoking craters created over the last few centuries. Several sulfurous hot springs are found just off the shoreline.
Santorini Caldera

Santorini caldera is a large, mostly submerged caldera, located in the southern Aegean Sea, 120 kilometers north of Crete in Greece. Visible above water is the circular Santorini island group, consisting of Santorini, the main island, Therasia and Aspronisi at the periphery, and the Kameni islands at the center. It has been designated a Decade Volcano.
Ancient Thera

It was named after the mythical ruler of the island, Theras, and was inhabited from the 9th century BC until 726 AD. Ancient Thera is today open to the public and can be reached on a winding road that starts at Kamari or several footpaths from both sides of the mountain.
