Overview

Welcome to Santorini, also known as Thira or Thera, one of the most romantic islands in the world!

Santorini is one of the top destinations in Greece and is located in the southern Aegean Sea. It belongs to Cyclades, the most well-known Greek group of islands with the characteristic whitewashed villages near the blue sea.

As a volcanic island which was separated after volcano eruptions, Santorini has many unique characteristics. The capital of the island, Fira, as well as many villages, are located at the edge of the cliffs offering unique views to the volcano and Aegean Sea.

The picturesque small streets in Fira and Oia (pedestrian areas) invite you to get lost in them and discover every little corner of the white painted small houses and alleys, most of which are carved into the cliffs. The atmosphere of the island pulls you like a magnet and makes it hard to let go…

The beaches of Santorini are unique too, with their black colored sand, their clear waters and their diversity, some suitable for those who want to spend a busy day at the beach and others for those seeking calmness and relaxation.
