What is it that makes people fall in love with this island of the Aegean? Is it the breathtaking beauty of its red sunsets? Is it the blue of the sea, the grey of the volcanic ash or the sharp white and crisp blue of the picturesque villages?
The city is famous for its slower pace of life.
As you ascend from the sea, the smell of dry, crumbling dirt hits you. At the top of the white, winding steps you will enjoy one of the most photographed views on our planet. Undoubtedly the first thing you will notice will be the dark blue waters and the whitewashed villages hanging from the top of the cliffs.
Couples from all around the globe come here for their honeymoon and enamored brides take photos with their husbands to be in the beautiful and famous red sunsets. Younger couples head to Santorini to celebrate their love in the picturesque cities of Fira, Oia and Akrotiri and exchange eternal love promises under the bright sun of the Aegean.
Well-travelled families enjoy the serenity of the view of the Caldera, the active volcano of the island, and are excited to discover the exquisite wines and elegant Cycladic cuisine. Santorini overflows with a great variety of local products like cherry tomatoes, white eggplants, fava, capers and a special kind of fresh goat cheese.
Exceptional wines produced from grapes grown in the volcanic soil of the island. Wines such as Assyrtiko, Athyri, and the famous Vinsanto are just some of the distinctive varieties that you can taste at the island’s wineries or at the many top quality restaurants.
Santorini’s dramatic beauty proves to be an irresistible lure that just like a Sirene’s song summons travelers from all over the world.
