Santorini, the unique geological phenomenon is also one of the most romantic destinations, located in the southern Aegean sea. The capital, ancient Thira, is located on an altitude of 369 meters. There you can visit one of the most important prehistoric museums in the country, the Museum of Prehistoric Thera. If you choose to stay overnight in Kamari, you will have the chance to visit one of the best organized beaches, with water sports facilities.
We recommend to visit the Archaeological Museum in Fira and the Museum of Wine, which is built 8 meters below the earth, presenting the history of wine in Santorini. A memorable experience for everyone is the boat tour around the volcano. The best spot to admire nature’s marvelous creation is in Firostefani. On the south of the island, in Akrotiri, you will find one of the most important settlements in the area of the Aegean during the Early Copper Age. You shall see houses with beautiful frescoes, cobbled streets and squares, luxurious vessels, all covered with volcanic materials, therefore perfectly preserved until today.
Another place to see is the gorgeous Oia, announced in 1933 by the presidential decree to be a traditional settlement. People travel from around the world to enjoy Oia’s sunset. Alternatively, you could discover the equally majestic sunset in Prophet Elia in the area of Imerovigli. Don’t forget to taste some traditional dishes like the tomato balls, fava, capers, Kopania (barley rusks with raisins), Santorini pudding (made of semolina and milk), combined with the famous wines of the island. If you are a jazz lover, then you should visit Santorini in July. The Jazz Festival hosts the most famous artists of the genre.
