Santorini, Greece

Learn a little something about this key location

Why travel to Santorini this summer?

Santorini might be the most recognizable of the Greek Islands. With its hillside towns filled with white houses and blue roofs, this island is stunning from every angle. The cliff-top towns of Oia and Fira are the most notable, sitting high above a flooded caldera, or collapsed volcanic crater.

Santorini is one of the most dramatic islands in the world, its landscape the result of a volcanic eruption about 3,600 years ago. Black volcanic-sand beaches gives views of the Aegean Sea, a chance to marvel at the contrast of colors between the land and sea.

Step into the past at the Akrotiri Archaeological Site, an Ancient Minoan settlement covered in a heap of volcanic ash. It is often referred to as the Pompeii of the Aegean due to the preservation of this site.
