Caldera, as we say a Cycladic dream...

The villages of Caldera are literally on the edge of the hill. The whitewashed, island lodgings are built unevenly, creating small, winding narrow routes, interconnected with stairs. Among them, there are luxurious accommodations, tourist shops, award winning restaurants and bars, with their background of the unique view of the volcano ... The picturesque Caldera includes the villages of Fira, Oia, Imerovigli and Firostefani and is a number one choice of Santorini visitors.

 Fira, the capital of the island, holds the leading place of the nightlife, with internationally famous bars that promise you delicious cocktails and refreshing beverages, above the majestic illuminated Caldera. ‘A picture to be drunk in the glass’ as the locals say ...

 Both Imerovigli and Oia are flooded daily by tourists who wish to see the sunset ...with the right way: on the narrow balconies, ‘bathed’ in light as the sun shines the whole nature with colors and generates the most unique summer experiences.

Tour to the volcano... An experience of a lifetime!

Your visit to Santorini must be accompanied by an excursion to the famous volcano. All you need to do is to catch one of the excursion boats that set off from Gialos (the old port), Athinio (the new port) and Amoudi, towards the New and Old Kameni.

In Nea Kameni you have the opportunity to walk up to the volcano's crater, while in the Old Kameni you can swim in the Hot Springs, with the water temperature to be 5 degrees higher than in the rest of the sea! This experience will be unforgettable!

The myth of the Lost Atlantis

Plato's  references to the Lost Atlantis and its mysterious disappearance is linked, as scientists say, to the explosion of the volcano and sinking of a part of the island, in the 17th century. Is Santorini the lost Atlantis? Let your imagination wander freely in the myth...

Journey to the history of Santorini

The prehistoric settlement of Akrotiri was one of the most famous centers in the Aegean, with a significant cultural and economic presence, which declined after the evacuation of its residents and eruption of the volcano in the 17th century. A visit to the Museum of Prehistoric Thera in Fira will get you in touch with the utensils and frescoes rescued from the town of Akrotiri.

 

Sunset of priceless value

The magnificent sunset features the most important travel guides worldwide and is praised as one of the best experiences that the island offers. The white balconies of Oia are deluged by impatient viewers, ready to look at the horizon, painted in the color of fire, flooded with the unique charm of the sunset. The atmosphere which exists  here is ritualistic ... The image engraved in mind is as a seduction, full of tension and romance ... It is justifiable, then, that Santorini is ranked among the most popular destinations for those who are in love!

Colourful beaches

Santorini is expected that will fascinate you with its dazzling beauty. Part of this charm, occupy the 'colorful' beaches, some of which you will find in the list with the most beautiful beaches of the country. It makes impression  the so-called "Red Beach". Here the sand, the rocks and volcanic landscape stand out because of the unusual, red colour shade. We continue with Perivolos and the distinctive black sand, the beach bars, the  taverns and the londings. It is one of the most famous and busy beaches of Santorini. The contrast of colours continues with the unorganized White Beach, lacking of any facilities, in  a short distance from the Red one, where the white rocks prevail. In Perissa, you will find young people enjoying themselves till the morning in the fully-crowded Beach bars and doing water sports in the organized beaches with its facilities. Lastly, but equally impressive as the rest ones, is the beach of Vlychada, which is situated against the magnificent volcanic rocks, forming patterns and small caves.

 

Gastronomy

The cosmopolitan Cycladic island is renowned for its cuisine, based on the goods generated by the volcanic land. The split beans, the tomatoes, the white eggplants, the capers and the tender cheese star in the local recipes. The fame of Santorini, however, was launched because of its wines. The white variety O.P.A.P., the Brusque and the Vinsanto are the most popular tastes that are exported abroad with a great success.
