Welcome to Santorini
Santorini is the world famous Greek Island located at the south Aegean Sea. It is a 35 minutes fly from Athens international Airport or an average 5 to 8 hours boat ride from the port of Piraeus. The everlasting beauty of Santorini island attracts thousands of visitors every year and it is no wonder that the island is one of the top tourist destinations in the world. Its wild volcanic landscape, the rugged cliffs, the wild nature and beautiful beaches combined with its rich history and traditions make Santorini the gem of Greece. Santorini erupts with charm.
A volcano embraced by the Aegean, this island-phenomenon in the Cyclades gives its visitors a mythical experience. Santorini – also known as Thera in Greek – is the island immortalized by poets and painters, thanks to its celebrated light, multi-colored cliffs and picture-perfect sunsets. On this island all senses are magnified, a product of its many contrasts: black earth against whitewashed homes clinging and hanging to the cliffside, or wild volcanic sculptures against sleek Cycladic lines.
Apart from the breathtaking views and the amazing sunsets Santorini is well known for the local wines which have been internationally awarded as well as the exceptional cuisine of the islands restaurants. Santorini also hosts the incredible “Excavations” of Akrotiri as well as the ruins of Ancient Thera and the museums of Ancient and Prehistorical Thera. And of course, since Santorini is an island in the Aegean Sea, there are many beaches to explore and taste how refreshing can be the deep blue clean water of the sea.
