Santorini: Live your vacation dream on a truly unique volcanic island

Santorini’s ‘face’ is instantly recognizable around the world: a head-turner with its reputation for dazzling panoramas, romantic sunsets and volcanic-sand beaches, it’s hardly surprising that the island hosts 1,5 million tourists annually. Santorini sits in the Aegean Sea, roughly halfway between Athens and Crete, and its crescent-like shape hints at the fact that it was once circular, also known as Strongili, the round one. Thousands of years ago a colossal volcanic eruption caused the centre of Strongili to sink, leaving a caldera (or crater) with towering cliffs along the east side – now the island's trademark landscape. Santorini is considered the most sought after place for a romantic getaway in Greece, since there are not many places in the world where you can enjoy exquisitely clear waters while perched on the rim of a massive active volcano in the middle of the sea! The island has a growing reputation as a “wedding destination” for couples from all over the world. And what better accommodation for the perfect honeymoon than renting a villa, among the many available in Santorini. Overall, it's also a great idea to book a volcano boat trip to see from up close the history of the island.
