Santorini the island with the majestic sunsets and the whitewashed picturesque villages is the ideal romantic getaway. Few realize though that the island is actually an active volcano. The enormous explosion that took place 3.600 years ago turned the ancient island of Thera also named “Strogyli” (meaning round) to the crescend-shaped island of today. Its unique architecture, the many archaelogical sites, the culinary delights of the surprisingly fertile land and the chance to take a boat tour within the caldera of the volcano make Santorini one of the most interesting destinations worldwide. It is however the views towards the caldera, changing colours and shapes as the day passes to culminate in the famous Santorini sunset, that bring out the artist and the romantic in every soul.
