Santorini Travel Guide You Need At Every Step
The jewel of the Cyclades….the Volcanic Santorini has many villages and towns here but the cosmopolitan hubs of Fira, Oia, Monolithos, Finikia, Kamari, Perissa, Megalohiri and Perivolos are the ones which draw maximum number of tourists. Most of the homes on Santorini are white washed creating a spacious pristine illusion though in reality these are densely packed homes.
Santorini offers lunar landscapes, Caldera with its volcanic centre and lovely towns like Fira, Oia, Imerovgli, Firostefani, Pyrogos etc. The profusion of ancient churches, monasteries and very old castles only accentuate the unusual landscape that surrounds them….in Santorini the constructs are props and the landscape is the star.
Red beach with its ravishing ruby hued rocks and White beach with its spectacular white cliffs against the black sound are some of the most photographed places in the world. Vilchada beach with its bevy of luxury resorts and spas and Akrotiri with its historic ruins that revealed a carefully preserved town that was submerged by lava are star attractions of Santorini.
Revel in the terrace restaurants and watch the sunset from cruise ships that take you to the Volcano centre while you sip on the choicest Santorin wines. The ash and pumice laden soil of Santorin imparts a special mineral rich flavour to everything…wines, tomatoes, eggplant and even the Greek goat cheese here tastes different.
Go on a sumptuous wine tour that winds around Exogialos, Monolithos, Megalochori, Pyrgos and Caldera and learn the secret techniques that have made Santorin the most coveted wine hub. Explore the island on donkeys that manoeuvre the lunar landscape with dexterity or zap around on quad bikes….either way you will fall in love with the place.
