Santorini Vacation Travel Guide | Expedia


Officially known by its ancient name of Thera,
the striking volcanic islands of Santorini is one of the most visited Greek islands. Once a much larger, single island, Santorini
as it looks today is the result of a massive volcanic explosion known as the Minoan or
Theran explosion which took place around 3,600 years ago. The explosion left the steep sided
caldera on which the main settlements now perch as well as the deep lagoon that provides
the island with its safe harbours. Cruise ships travel to Santorini from all over the
Agean and the Mediterranean and sail across the flooded caldera. Santorini is a world famous destination that
features some of the most striking Mediterranean architecture. The distinctive white washed
houses are the visible portions of houses that include rooms built into cliff side caves. Blue domed churches are scattered through the towns and pathways and steps are traversed by keen eyed tourist on their way to the next stunning view or taverna. Away from the main towns that roost on the
cliff-tops, there is plenty to see. Numerous beaches at the base of the cliffs have warm
waters to swim in and unusually coloured sands. Elsewhere, small boat harbours with great
fish tavernas close by and some amazing roads are great options for when you get tired of
gazing at the horizon. Sunset is a special time here and thousands
come just to witness the sun sinking into the water from the numerous vantage points
around the towns. The views from a thousand feet above the water are simply stunning.

    The only thing I didn't like in the video was the spoken English with such a hard accent to understand. That's a thing you should definitely improve.

    Warm water? That was't my experience. The water was cold in 3 beaches I went but the weather was quite warm, so it wasn't as bad.

    It's so sad that such a beautiful place goes through so hard times. I'm proud of being a Greek but also ashamed. Ashamed because of how we treat minorities, ashamed of the people we choose to lead us. Ashamed of how we don't protect our land (I mean the environment and our sea).
