About Santorini

Santorini is famous not only for its natural beauty but for its cosmopolitan lifestyle with a vigorous nightlife and various restaurants and cocktail bars along with fantastic accommodation facilities with views over the Caldera.

Santorini was destroyed by a powerful volcanic eruption in 1500 B.C. covering the island completely and destroying a highly advanced and powerful civilization (Akrotiri) that lived in the city at the time. However, this eruption created an unrivalled wild landscape with enchanting views and attractions that now make Santorini a must see place.

Stunning clean beaches with black shining pebbles and rugged landscape in the background coupled with black, white and red sands make Santorini a truly unforgettable experience. Famous for its "Caldera", the collection of cliffs bordering the Aegean Sea that in ancient times was an active volcano, Santorini is the Cyclades' most prized possession.
