When you see the iconic contrast of the gleaming white buildings against the symbolic azure blue waters of the Aegean Sea, you know you are undoubtedly in Santorini.
The famous Greek Island of Santorini has established strong associations of being Greece's most sophisticated and aesthetic holiday destination, welcoming over 2 million guests each year. If luxury is your thing, the island will provide you with some of the most exclusive hotels and restaurants, with many celebrities frequently visiting the area.
Not many people know that the dramatic cliffs on the island's edge were formed as a result of one of the world's largest volcanic eruptions, which caused Santorini's centre to sink into the Aegean Sea, leaving behind a caldera (or as we would say crater). Nowadays, the appearance of these rocky calderas has become the trademark of the island and has made it one of the world's most photogenic destinations.
