WHERE WILL YOU HEAD TO?
This island was born of a series of volcanic eruptions that have helped create a rugged terrain that is really quite dramatic. In fact, the whole of Santorini is still an active volcano – but worry not, the last volcanic activity was in 1950 and the last big eruption occurred 3,600 years ago. On your travels, keep an eye out for the wide range of geological structures and forms that are the result of volcanic activity. Take a drive to Firá, the island’s capital, where you can view the volcano before viewing the city. Fira is truly beautiful, and the cascades of white washed houses look as though they are flowing down towards the edge. The lively tavernas and outstanding restaurants will have foodies thrilled. Fish features heavily on most menus, and is as fresh as can be. This is a city to spend time in, with enough to keep everyone occupied.
When you've sampled what you want, take a trip out of town to see some of what makes Santorini truly special. Ancient Thera is a spectacular site – the vast ruins show the various occupations of the area. Most are from the Hellenistic era, but extensive remains from the Roman and Byzantine occupation still exist. Some of the ruins date back to the 6th century B.C. Take a camera as this area is one photo opportunity after another. The views from this area are fantastic. If your appetite has been stimulated by Thera, then you absolutely must see Akrotiri. The archaeological remains date back to at least the 4th millennium B.C. Thought to be one of the most significant prehistoric settlements discovered in the region, this is definitely worthy of a visit.
Having soaked up Santorini's history you've probably built a thirst. Take a trip to the Wine Museum, for a wine tasting session in the natural cave six metres down. If you're lucky your visit will coincide with one of the concerts or performances that take place there. With a great deal from us and so many places to see, don't forget to make time for the wonderful beaches on Santorini, known for the unique black sands which are a result of the volcanic origins of this fascinating island. Kamari is a great destination, offering a picturesque beach experience along with watersports activities for those seeking more than just sunbathing.
