Explore the Island of Beauty

Famous the world around and instantly recognizable from its imposing caldera, its white cubic houses and blue-domed churches featured in countless postcards and magazine spreads, Santorini is a destination that will enchant your heart from the first moment, and forever.

History & Sightseeing

Its history starts more than three millennia ago, when an advanced civilization evolved on the southern end of Santorini, in Akrotiri. The volcanic eruption of 1600 BC annihilated the city, which was uncovered in modern day and is now one of the most significant sightseeing attractions on the island. Together with the city of Ancient Thera atop Mesa Vouno mountain, and various archaeological findings around the island showcased in the Archaeological Museum and the Museum of Prehistoric Thera at Fira, they present the rich ancient history of the island. In medieval times, Santorini flourished, and five castle cities were built. Pyrgos, Emporio, Oia, Akrotiri and Skaros at our neighboring Imerovigli were the locations of the imposing, so-called Kastelia, with the first two being the best-preserved ones today and must-sees for all visitors seeking a look in the island’s rich heritage.
