Santorini is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful of the Greek Islands, with its famous blue domed, whitewashed buildings, luxurious resorts and romantic sunsets. From quiet villages with narrow streets, to the vibrant capital Fira filled with all sorts of shops selling jewellery and souvenirs, restaurants, cafes, bars and night clubs.
Situated in the Aegean Sea, Santorini is one of the Cyclades islands and is renowned for its volcanic sand beaches and fascinating towns and villages. The two main towns of Fira and Oia literally grip to the edge of the Caldera, a huge sea filled crater flanked by multi coloured rock edges, which was formed when a huge volcanic eruption many years ago caused the centre of Santorini to melt in to the sea.
Traditional produce of the island includes the white aubergine, which is sweeter in flavour than the purple variety, capers and cherry tomatoes. The vines thrive on the island thus producing some exceptional wines.
Santorini enjoys a typical Mediterranean climate with July being the hottest month and January considered the coolest. It rarely rains here in the summer months, but you can expect some rain in autumn and winter.
