The Beautiful Island of Santorini
Greece

OVERVIEW

A Picturesque Paradise a Few Miles from the Greek Mainland

Magnificent sunsets, thousands of memorable moments, blue skies like no other, the history – all this and so much more describes Santorini. This Greek island in the Aegean Sea, is situated on the southern east tip of the Cyclades. Today Santorini is one of the most popular island holiday destinations in the world. The characteristic architecture of the island are houses dug into the volcanic rock face, known as cave houses. The island is also scattered with neo classical mansions, some restored to their former glory. Traffic-free cobbled streets are the norm in the traditional villages with winding footpaths leading you to your next adventure. The island is littered with blue domed churches. During the period when Minoan Crete became a maritime empire, Cretans came to settle on the island and intermarried with the locals. Evidence from the Akrotiri excavations show that this civilization was abruptly terminated at its peak, with the massive volcano eruption of 1550- 1500 BC. By some means they were forewarned about the impending calamity, most probably with the earthquake which proceeded the eruption by one year, it appears that they left and did not return, since Akrotiri has yielded no jewellery, official seals or human remains. Akrotiri has been described as a “Bronze Aged Pompeii”.
