Little white houses on a 300-metre high cliff, traces of an erupted volcano and a rich history can all be found on Santorini.
You won’t be bored for a second on this breathtaking island. What makes Santorini so unique is first and foremost its nature. The island is volcanic in origin, so most of the sandy beaches have blackish grey lava sand. The island architecture is also very unique. The capital city of Thira is located in the west on sheer cliffs that rise directly out of the sea. Not surprisingly, Thira is also referred to as the ‘city on the high cliffs’. Don’t forget to visit the famous village of Oia. The village clings to a rock face and is breathtakingly beautiful, thanks to its little white houses and buildings. You can take the most beautiful pictures here at sunset.
The airport of Santorini is located about 5 km from the centre of its capital Thira. You can travel to/from the airport by taxi or bus.
