Santorini: the Work of Art of Volcanic Lava
The island of Santorini is the acknowledged tourist Mekka of the world elite. From the first sight the singularity and uniqueness of Santorini is evident. The very moment you step on the soil of Santorini you will be carried away to another world: the world without time and space, which appeared thousands of years ago out of the bowels of the earth and is washed by the waters of the Aegean Sea. The peculiarities of Santorini such as the austere distinctive beauty of its volcanic rocks of different shades, the unique architecture of its towns, nestled on terraces of steep rocks, with its traditional white houses and blue domed churches make the island outstanding and unique.
Santorini (Thira, as the Greeks call the island) is located at the southernmost tip of the Cyclades and is, in fact, a group of islands, which includes Thira, Tirasia, Aspronisi, Palaia Kameni and Nea Kameni. Santorini is essentially what remains after an enormous volcanic eruption that destroyed the earliest settlements on a formerly single island, and created the current geological caldera.
Santorini is considered to be one of the most romantic places in Greece and worldwide, occupying the 14th place on the Top Romantic Getaways list. Santorini is a popular destination among couples and honeymooners.
