An immense volcanic eruption over three and half thousand years ago, around 1645 BC, formed what are now Santorini’s beautiful trademarks: striking cliffs and dramatic coasts. Some say that this was the eruption that led to the demise of the lost city of Atlantis. True or not, Santorini is bathed in history offering a plethora of cultural and other activities. Venture out to explore the black beaches of Perivolos, the ancient Minoan city of Akrotiri or the majestic hot springs of Thirasia.
“Did you know that the whole complex of Santorini islands is still an active volcano and probably the only volcano in the world whose crater is in the sea?”
