Santorini is the southernmost of the Cyclades Islands in Greece. It is officially called Thera. It is the largest island of a small, circular archipelago which bears the same name. Santorini is a small,circular archipelago of volcanic islands located in the Southern Aegean Sea, about 200 km Southeast of Greece’s mainland. Crescent-shaped Santorini is famous for its whitewashed towns sitting delicately on cliffs offering panoramic views of the submerged volcano, the black sand beaches, and deeply scarred hills, all which perfectly come together to create a spectacular landscape and unique atmosphere. With a breathtaking natural backdrop which includes the deep blue Aegean, the magnificent Caldera, the mysterious volcano, and the spectacular sunset, there are no words to describe this extremely romantic setting. With almost 330 days of sunshine each year and unforgettable sunsets, the weather in Santorini is certainly something. Santorini can be divided into three parts. One side is the caldera with the villages of Thira, Imerovigli, Firastefani and Oia perched so far above the sea that it may as well be a painting. The towns of Perissa and Kamari with their black sand beaches are the second part of Santorini. The third part of Santorini is Akrotiri, known of course for the famous ruins from the Minoan period.
