Santorini island Greece

Santorini island Greece, is the top destination in Greece and among the most romantic destinations in the Greek islands and also in the world. Santorini island has been voted as the most beautiful island in the world more than 4 times and is one of the most photographed places in the world.

The island of Santorini is essentially what remains of an enormous volcanic explosion dated back 3,600 years and which created the current geological caldera.It is 128 nautical miles away from the port of Piraeus /Athens. 30 minutes flight

Perched on the edge of the caldera overlooking the Aegean Sea, Fira, the capital of Santorini, boasts a surreal charm. Its international airport welcomes travelers to explore the island’s wonders— from the iconic red beach to the picturesque villages of Oia, each corner tells tales of ancient volcanic eruptions.

The Caldera and the whole cluster of the Santorini islands have been characterized as an area of outstanding natural beauty.

Since 1980, thousands of couples from all over the world have chosen Oia and other Santorini villages for their wedding, or honeymoon tr ip. It is estimated that more than 500 ceremonies take place each year

Santorini is considered to be the most sought after place for a romantic getaway in Greece, since there are not many places in the world where you can enjoy exquisitely clear waters while perched on the rim of a massive active volcano in the middle of the sea!

A visit to Santorini is the ultimate gastronomic experience, as the island is a true culinary paradise! Treat your taste buds to some famous traditional products like cherry tomatoes, white egg plants, fava, caper and “hloró tyrí”, a special kind of fresh goat cheese found on the island, or why not try some of the exceptional wines produced from grapes grown in the volcanic soil of the island!
